To achieve high quality standards for the ice that is used in large ice arenas, Gelios Star, a Russian OEM, has designed a state-of-the-art water treatment process. This process utilizes Liqui-Cel® degassing technology to take gasses and bubbles out of the water used to make the ice. Gasses in the water can produce a cloudy appearance in the ice which negatively impacts what the fans and TV cameras see during events held in the Ice Palace.
The overall water treatment system used in the ice palace includes the following elements that work together to improve ice production. Water pressure boosting multi-stage pump. Sedimentation granular medium filtration unit
with automatic back-wash. Activated carbon for Cl2 removal. Ion-exchange softening. Reverse osmosis unit for 2x 1.5 m3/h. capacity. Permeate storage tanks. DI multi-stage vertical pump. Two Liqui-Cel membrane degas units 6x28
size. Polishing Mix-Bed.
