Radiant heat under ice rink

steveg Member Posts: 16
Has anyone had experience with radiant heat under an ice rink to prevent frost buildup in the ground?

What are the design basics I should be aware of?

    pex tubing manufacturer assistance

    I have recently worked on a project for frozen food cold storage warehouses.  Whatever pex tubing you use, use their resources to start.  I would like to offer a suggestion, use the "waste" heat from the refrigeration side to heat the ground below with a boiler backup.  Paul Rohrs wrote an article (in PHC News I believe) about it and it worked great for my project. 

    Hope this helps.

    Why not use a chiller that creates glycol to -8C and recovers the heat... free heat COPs go through the roof. Great way to do it. Aermec NRL with heat recovery, now available in North America
