In It For The Long Haul Peak season has passed. July 4, Independence Day, is the Black Friday of the packaged ice business – if you don’t know by now whether you’re having a good season, you’re probably not having one. Last year I found myself on the phone with a couple of guys in England the day after Independence Day. I told them it was a holiday week, and they wondered which one. “It’s the Beginning of the End of the Empire Day,” I told them. “Oh yes,” they responded. “We call that traitor’s day.” No matter what you call it, we in the ice business recognize it as a peak. Regular readers know that my favorite thing about this business is the jobs we create. More demand equals more drivers, more helpers/shotguns, more plant personnel. More drivers sells trucks. More demand sells merchandisers and packaging. Each of those industries employs more people. It’s a beautiful system. We’re somewhat recession resistant but not weather resistant. Luckily, on our peak day we enjoyed high temperatures across the country, with very little rain expected and even less materializing. A few showers here and there didn’t ruin a good time, and some cloud cover even cooled areas off. There are so many great things about this business. Capital finance is another great one, allowing you ready financing for trucks, merchandisers, plant and equipment. We consume a lot of electricity, which we can’t get around. That can be problematic, especially if you’re in a high cost market. We can’t choose where the electrons we use come from – coal, natural gas, hydro or nuclear power. Some of you are in areas that are implementing solar and wind power, but I’m unaware of any plants where this is making a major contribution (please contact us if you are one). We are actually making a positive environmental story by producing off peak, reducing overall power demand. Ice is a store of thermal energy, so that ice we’re producing with off peak energy is a little battery for that energy, which gets used up during the day. It’s even rechargeable. And, when it’s used, it leaves a completely natural residue. Except for the energy, what could be more eco-friendly? Two industries know well how this works. Thermal energy storage utilizes ice for off peak chilled water production in centralized building cooling. Turbine inlet air cooling chills air

used in peak load turbine generators at big power plants. A lot of these are run with natural gas, some use natural gas as the refrigerant. Using ice as thermal storage increases efficiency on several levels, maybe not spectacularly but significant enough to make the large investment. That’s how a lot of packaged ice producers like to operate: maybe not spectacularly but a steady and predictable cash flow. Microbreweries are crazy popular right now. There are probably many in your market, most of them new in the past 10 – 15 years. They are marketing driven: they use clever packaging and quirky brand names; they use their brewing locations as event spaces and have pour licenses like a bar or restaurant; they like to locate in the up and coming hipster neighborhoods. I don’t know what it costs to set one up or how it compares to packaged ice plant costs. Probably a few people in our business are in the microbrew business as well, we’d like to hear from you too. I would guess it’s not nearly as energy intensive, and all of the shiny copper and stainless equipment looks like banks might loan money on it. You probably don’t have your own trucks but you have to give up a lot of margin to a distributor. The worst thing, though, is that there are a lot of them. Sooner or later many of the 20 somethings at your microbrewery will shave off their beards and wear long sleeves over the tattoos, work regular jobs, get married, buy houses in the suburbs, and stop buying $10 beers. And a lot of microbreweries are going to fold. You, on the other hand, are not that glamorous. You don’t have a bar at your place, and you probably aren’t in a restaurant district. I’ve been in plenty of ice plants that are in industrial areas I wouldn’t want to walk at night. You are happy to grind it out, to provide good value day after day, year after year. You will last a lot longer than the microbrewery. Here’s to the rest of your summer.

Around the Nation on INDEPENDENCE DAY, Packaged Ice is Always Part of the Celebrations

It’s not often that our industry is noticed in the popular press or culture. Unless it’s a recall due to water issues, or a natural disaster requiring humanitarian assistance, we’re usually in the background. That’s probably just fine with you and lots of ice producers around the country – work hard all summer, provide the recreation and refreshment that people demand, without too much fanfare. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to be recognized. Here are a couple of stories from around the country about packaged ice being recognized as part of people’s summer fun.

Local Ice Distributors Work Up A Sweat This Holiday Week While Keeping You Cool by Sydney Edwards

It might be hot outside, but one industry is keeping things cool. The week of Independence Day is the top selling time for ice distributors. Tennessee Valley Ice keeps their freezers at 25 degrees to deliver 200 tons of ice and keep folks cool. “It is hot, hot, hot,” says John Olvey, who came with his family from Soddy Daisy, TN to enjoy their holiday on the water at Lake Chickamauga. He said they’re staying cool with lake time, fans, and bags and bags of ice. “They were out of ice across the street. I was waiting on them to restock it and I went over there and got three more bags,” said Olvey.

YOUR PRODUCT

That ice is coming from Tennessee Valley Ice Company in Chattanooga, who said this week is their busiest time. “Every box we went to has been empty, so yeah, we can’t produce enough ice to keep up with it,” said route driver Chris Wilson. Divers like Wilson are going from ice box to ice box, then going back and restocking their trucks to deliver more. “We produce 200 tons today and we’re selling every grain of it right now. We’re running 30 to 35 thousand bags a day,” said Gary Bloodworth, Vice President of Tennessee Valley Ice. Bloodworth’s family has owned Tennessee Valley ice for over 46 years. From bagging to packing, that means they’re making nine tons of ice an hour. Bloodworth said all hands are on deck this week. “If you’re off on the fourth of July, you’re not in the ice business. I’ll put it that way,” said Bloodworth. They’re keeping folks cooled off, while these workers might be working up a sweat. “You’d think we’d stay cool with this in the back of the truck, but it never seems to work out,” said Wilson. Even though it makes for a holiday spent at work, Chris Wilson hopes people continue buying ice and have a happy Independence Day. Gary Bloodworth said they sell most of their ice to convenience stores and grocery locations. On average, those places sell 3,000 bags or more a year. Tennessee Valley’s website shows them as a major distributor for the area, with customers including Circle K, 7-Eleven, and Wal-Mart. RM REFRIGERATION Magazine │ July 2019 5


A LITTLE HISTORY

Cool As Ice By Reid Creager (From a recent issue of Inventor’s Digest)

It’s fitting that the Zamboni® ice resurfacing machine is so cool. How cool? It’s referenced in songs by the Beastie Boys, They Might Be Giants and even Weird Al Yankovic. Snoopy drove one in the “Peanuts” special, “She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown”—and his creator, Charles Schulz, had two of them at his home ice rink. It’s such an integral part of ice hockey that a hockeythemed version of “Monopoly” contains a token in its shape. It has been in the plot lines of numerous TV shows and movies. Schulz, via Charlie Brown, paid tribute in humorous irony. “There are three things in life that people like to stare at: a flowing stream, a crackling fire, and a Zamboni clearing the ice.” Actually, ol’ Chuck could have said it better, because technically there is no such thing as a Zamboni. But we’ll get to that later.

COLD BEGINNINGS

Even Frank J. Zamboni’s birthplace suggests he was born to be an inventor. He was a year old in 1902 when he and his family moved from Eureka, Utah, to an Idaho farm where he cultivated his vast mechanical skills. His business association with his brother Lawrence played a key role in his fortunes. Zamboni was 19 when he moved to Southern California with him to join their older brother, George, in his auto repair business. Soon after, Frank and Lawrence opened an electrical service business serving the local dairy industry. This is where Zamboni was introduced to the refrigeration/ cooling business. He and his brother installed refrigerator units that dairies used to keep their milk cool. Before long, the produce industry also had a demand for cooling. So the brothers built a plant that made the block ice 6 REFRIGERATION Magazine │July 2019


used by wholesalers to pack their product for rail transport across the country. But as refrigeration became more prevalent and its technology improved, demand for block ice began to melt. Frank and Lawrence were ready to adapt again. Ice skating was becoming popular after figure skating became a regular part of the Winter Olympics in 1924. Noting the lack of rinks in Southern California, the brothers and a cousin, Pete, built the 20,000-square-foot Iceland Skating Rink in the Los Angeles County city of Paramount in 1940. (The rink, mere blocks from the Zamboni factory, still exists.)

SMOOTHING THINGS OUT

if metaphorically. But he was soon reminded that a vision and reality are often two different things. He battled through three experimental prototypes in 1947 and jettisoned the most recent one because the blade was noisy, the snow tank did not carry enough snow, and the two-wheel drive machine couldn’t get sufficient traction even with tire chains. So using some parts from that prototype, he ramped up the technology. Zamboni bought another surplus front steering truck axle; now he would have both four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. The new machine’s adjustable blade could be held firmly in place by the operator. No more loud noise or digging into the ice.

The oft-intense Southern California heat necessitated that the brothers build a dome for the rink. But afterward, there remained the challenge of maintaining a smooth and level ice surface.

Satisfied with his results by Summer 1949, Zamboni applied for a patent for the Model A Zamboni Ice Resurfacer and received U.S. utility patent No. 93,478 in 1953.

As is often the case with invention, the ultimate answer was the refinement of some previously rudimentary efforts. Initially, workers would pull a scraper behind a tractor, shaving the surface in an attempt at resurfacing. Then, workers would scoop away the shavings, spray the surface with water, squeegee away the dirty water and then apply more water that would be allowed to freeze, after more than an hour.

SUCCEEDING MODELS

Frank Zamboni knew there had to be a faster and more efficient way. He began experimenting with a tractor-sled hybrid in the early 1940s, eventually abandoning that due to unsatisfactory results. In 1947, he began working on a machine built on a complete Jeep® that would shave the ice, remove the shavings, wash and squeegee the ice, and hold snow in an elevated tank large enough to last for an entire resurfacing job. Zamboni had returned to Eureka,

It didn’t take long for the Zamboni ice resurfacer to become cool. Olympic skating star Sonja Henie, practicing at Paramount Iceland in 1950 with her traveling show, told Zamboni she had to have one. He worked day and night to have a newer Model B version ready for her upcoming performance in Chicago. In all, four Model B machines were built. One of them, bought by the Ice Capades, was restored and has been on display for years at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Eveleth, Minnesota. Model C (1952) and Model D (1953) featured design improvements. The C elevated the driver’s position and lowered the snow tank onto the body in order to allow better visibility and snow capacity. The D re-designed the look of the snow tank but was later scrapped. The Model E, in 1954, was the first standardized design for Zamboni. The NHL’s Boston Bruins and nine other

entities bought Model Es that year. The Bruins machine is in the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. As ice skating continued to gain popularity and more rinks were built, demand grew for machines with more snow and water capacity. Zamboni was ready to adapt again, this time abandoning the full Jeep body in favor of a Jeep chassis and redesigning the resurfacer. This was the basis of 1956’s Model F. Zamboni introduced the world’s first electric-powered ice resurfacer in February 1960. As battery technology evolved, the 500 Series included electricpowered production machines. The HD Series (1964) featured a vertical auger system to convey the snow and a quick-dumping snow tank, still an industry standard and the first production dumping machine not built on a Jeep chassis. The Model 500—circa 1978 and the world’s most popular ice resurfacer—introduced a liquid-cooled engine in addition to other improvements in its fuel-powered resurfacers. The Zamboni Model 552 (1990) set the standard for electric resurfacing equipment in quality and reliability. Among many updates in the 2000s, of most recent interest is last year’s unveiling of the Model 450, which uses lithium-ion batteries for a more efficient electric-powered machine.

PRESERVING EXCLUSIVITY

Zamboni’s status as an ice-surfacing pioneer was frozen in time decades ago. He brought his machines to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games in Squaw Valley, California, and all of the ice-resurfacing machines at the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, Norway, were made by Zamboni. »

REFRIGERATION Magazine │ July 2019 7


Zamboni brand machines were named the “Official Ice Resurfacer of the NHL” in 2002. It’s little wonder that Zamboni is a member of the United States Figure Skating Association Hall of Fame (2000), the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame (2006), the National Inventors Hall of Fame (2007), the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame (2009) and the United States Speed Skating Hall of Fame (2013). He died in 1988. In fact, the Zamboni name is so strongly ingrained in the public’s collective consciousness that there is a tendency to assume that every ice resurfacing machine was built by that company. When two Olympia ice resurfacing machines broke down during the 2010 Winter Olympics, some media outlets mistakenly reported that they were Zamboni machines. The Zamboni Co. is rightfully on guard that its brand does not suffer the same fate as companies such as Aspirin, whose trademarks have become genericized in the United States and elsewhere. Protection of its intellectual property extends to the identification of its product as a Zamboni machine or Zamboni ice-resurfacing machine, not a Zamboni. This is where Charlie Brown was wrong. Zamboni Co. engineer Kelly McMillen marvels at how fans at hockey games love to watch the machine—its slow, orderly routine a stark contrast to the often frenetic action during games. “It’s amazing to see people mesmerized by the resurfacing process,” he says. This is where Charlie Brown was right.

ZAMBONI FUN FACTS

• In 2001, a Zamboni machine was driven from the east coast of Canada (St. John’s, Newfoundland) across to the Pacific coast of British Columbia. At about nine miles per hour, the journey took approximately four months. •M  ore than 10,000 Zamboni machines have been delivered around the world. • When a Zamboni machine operator in the Midwest passed away, his funeral procession was led by a Zamboni machine. •B  etween 1928 and 1978, Frank J. Zamboni was awarded 15 patents that ranged from refrigeration innovation to ice resurfacing machines. • The blade on the Zamboni machine is designed especially for ice-resurfacing. It is sharp enough to slice through thick stacks of newsprint, weighs 57 lbs. and is 1/2 inch thick. • When the machine resurfaces the ice, it is capable of removing close to 2,500 lbs. of compacted snow and can leave behind about 1,500 lbs. of water.

ADVENTURES

A Different Kind of Ice,

But A Vast Supply – Ice Diving on Triton SUMMER IS HERE! BEAT THE HEAT! COME ICE DIVING ON TRITON! Even if you’ve never dived before, even if you don’t know how to swim... you can experience the thrill of floating underwater on a distant world. The latest news from NASA is a proposal to send a spacecraft to explore Neptune’s largest moon Triton.

streaks are believed to be erupted material from an internal ocean, or an icy mixture that migrates around the surface in response to changing seasonal patterns of sunlight, according to the statement.

Journey a distant world, but on a budget: Journey to ato Distant World, but on a Budget:

“Despite Triton’s distance from the sun and the cold temperatures, the weak sunlight is enough to drive strong seasonal changes on Triton’s surface and atmosphere,” Henry Roe, deputy director of Gemini and a member of the research team, said in the statement. “This work demonstrates the power of combining laboratory studies with telescope observations to understand complex planetary processes in alien environments so different from what we encounter every day here on Earth.”

NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft captured dark streaks produced by geysers visible on the icy surface of Triton’s south polar region. NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft captured dark streaks produced by geysers visible on the icy surface of Triton’s south polar region. Neptune’s largest moon Triton boasts an uncommon icy mixture of carbon monoxide and nitrogen, which could help astronomers better understand the conditions of other distant alien worlds. Using the Gemini Observatory in Chile and the high-resolution spectrograph called IGRINS (Immersion Grating Infrared Spectrometer), a visiting instrument for Gemini, astronomers detected a distinct infrared signature on Triton, revealing a mixture of carbon monoxide and nitrogen frozen as solid ice. This finding helps explain seasonal atmospheric changes on Triton and how material is transported across the moon’s surface via geysers, according to a statement. Prior to detecting this unique signature on Triton, researchers first identified the specific wavelength of infrared light absorbed by an ice mixture of carbon monoxide and nitrogen molecules in the lab.

“While the icy spectral fingerprint we uncovered was entirely reasonable, especially as this combination of ices can be created in the lab, pinpointing this specific wavelength of infrared light on another world is unprecedented,” Stephen Tegler, lead author of the study from Northern Arizona University’s Astrophysical Materials Laboratory, said in the statement. The icy mixture detected on Triton could help explain the moon’s iconic geysers, which are the dark, windblown streaks first observed by NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft in the moon’s south polar region. These distinct

In fact, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft found that carbon monoxide and nitrogen ices coexist on Pluto. However, the recent findings are the first evidence of these ices mixing, according to the statement. Therefore, the study, which will be published in The Astronomical Journal, sheds light on the possible composition of ices and seasonal variations in the atmosphere on other distant worlds beyond Neptune.
