Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance

Long-term Service Agreements maximize your operating reliability and equipment longevity. We regularly monitor critical systems, review any equipment performance concerns with operating and maintenance staff, perform routine maintenance and provide recommendations on any safety or optimization issues.

Recreational

We Take Ice Seriously

Startec refrigeration systems have created platforms for recreation, entertainment and competition at all levels from small town arenas to Olympic luge and bobsled tracks.

New Arena Design & Construction

New Arena Design & Construction

Startec is Alberta's most experienced company in the design, engineering and construction of new recreational ice plants. For more than 40 years, we've been providing complete service solutions for hockey, curling and skating rinks across Alberta.

We select equipment that delivers reliable performance with low operating and maintenance costs. Utilizing our Real Recovery Analysis process, we engineer facilities for optimum energy efficiency. We design heat recovery systems that redeploy waste heat in a facility without over-inflating the capital budget.

Portable Ice Surfaces

Portable Ice Surfaces

Startec's portable ice projects can reach Olympian heights. We installed, commissioned and maintained the temporary ice surface and compression plant for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Calgary XV Olympic Winter Games at McMahon Stadium.

Recreational Service Expert Troubleshooting

Expert Troubleshooting

We diagnose and correct operational issues that arise in recreational ice systems including:

  • Emergency Response - for critical equipment failure or other emergencies.
  • Start-Up - Carry out system start-up protocols and test the performance of all equipment for trouble-free operation.
  • Equipment Operation Training - We train non-technical staff and volunteers for safe, effective, no-hassle operation.
  • Routine Maintenance - on all recreational ice systems.
  • Shut Down - Inspect all equipment and perform essential shut-down procedures to protect equipment condition.
  • Long-Range Planning - Monitor equipment condition and advise you when it is time to budget for replacement.
Preventative Maintenance Agreements

Preventative Maintenance Agreements

Startec's Preventative Maintenance Agreements are a cost effective way for you to maintain your facility, maximize operating reliability and extend the service life of your equipment. Clients with agreements enjoy the benefits of a reduced service rate, and priority response status should any equipment malfunction.

During maintenance we monitor critical systems, review any equipment performance concerns with operating and maintenance staff, perform routine maintenance and provide recommendations on any safety or optimization issues.

Industrial

Freezing Your Most Important Assets

Startec is a trusted partner for companies that utilize industrial refrigeration systems undertaking projects that include: ground freezing for a potash operation, an environmental portable freezing solution for a northern gold mine, managing the refrigeration maintenance of a large beef processing plant, and expansion projects for the world's largest cold storage network.

Facility Expansion

Facility Expansion

We have led the engineering, design and construction on many large-scale and technically demanding refrigeration facilities. Whether you're expanding a current operation or developing a new facility, Startec will expertly guide you through the entire design-build process from initial planning through to commencing operations.

Drawing on decades of experience, we can quickly identify the most viable equipment options and advise you on which systems will provide the most reliable operation and lowest cost of ownership.

Freon System Replacement

Freon System Replacement

As part of international agreements to eliminate ozone damaging greenhouse gases, the widely used refrigerant, Freon 22, is being phased out of production with a full ban taking effect in 2020.

Industry analysts forecast increased demand for ammonia refrigeration systems that not only command a significant operational cost advantage over Freon equipment, but are also ozone friendly.

With more than 30 years of specialization in the servicing, design and construction of ammonia systems, Startec is uniquely qualified to guide you through the transition process to this lower-cost, eco-friendly alternative.

CO2 Refrigeration

CO2 Refrigeration

Food processors and distributors are under constant pressure to produce more while spending less on operations. For plant owners looking for greener and more efficient secondary refrigerants, a carbon dioxide (CO2)/ammonia (NH3) cascade system is a viable option.

In addition to providing 0 ozone depletion potential (ODP) and 1 global warming potential (GWP), CO2/NH3 cascade systems offer several benefits for food processing and low-temp distribution facilities including lower operating costs, lower capital costs, ammonia charge reduction, reduced compliance cost, constant positive system pressure and quality and throughput improvements.

Heat Recovery Systems

Heat Recovery Systems

Energy efficiency is a key issue for every facility where new refrigeration equipment is installed. Recent developments in heat recovery systems offer the potential for reducing energy bills. Waste heat can be harnessed to:

  • Provide warmth to other areas of a facility
  • Preheat cold water before it enters the water heating system
  • Heat snow melt pits in ice arenas

To ensure every facility we design strikes the optimum balance between low capital and operating costs, we perform an in-depth Real Recovery Analysis prior to recommending the installation of any heat recovery system.

We'll provide you with clear and detailed heat recovery recommendations so your facility will be the most environmentally responsible and cost-effective to build and operate.

Finding a Better Way

Startec has led the engineering, design and construction of many of the largest and most technically demanding refrigeration facilities in Western Canada. Our projects encompass a wide range of industries from supermarkets and commercial office space to oil & gas, industrial and food service.
