Spotlight Project 1 HOME CITY ICE — YOUNGSTOWN, OH

Spotlight Project cont’d 2 PM: Rick DeGroot
RETA Save the Date 2 Foreman: Mike Brown
Safety Day ‘19 Recap 2 Start-Up Technician: Mike Szolwinski

Be In The Know 3 System Info: 372 ton central ammonia refrigeration system

Summit Personals 4 Equipment: GEA compressor, Docal desuperheater, H.A. Phillips recirculator & HPR, BAC conden-
ser and Vogt Tube Ice/Turbo ice plant

Project Highlights:

Home City Ice is a national leader in packaged ice with 47 state of the art manufacturing plants
producing over 5,700 tons of ice per day. As they have at 6 other locations in the past, Home City
reached out to Summit Refrigeration Group to perform the ammonia piping, insulation, pipe paint-
ing and start-up of their latest state-of-the-art facility in Youngstown, OH. The project was to in-
clude the ammonia refrigeration piping of compressor, condenser, high pressure receiver, desuper-
heater and recirculator equipment hooked up to a 12 cell Vogt Tube Ice/Turbo ice plant.

Construction challenges included installation of equipment in limited space in the engine room and
ice plant room along with support of the piping system from building purlins and off the concrete
slabs. Weather was also an issue with constant rain hindering the exterior work. Thanks to Mike
Brown, Mike Szolwinski and the crew for completing this project safely and on time.

Design for the system was provided by Modern Ice, with relief system design by Summit Refrigera-
tion Group. Start-up of ice plant took place the week of August 12th, 2019.

Summit Refrigeration Group’s subcontractor included Lanham Insulation for pipe insulation and
pipe painting. A special thanks to Lanham for another job well done.

Introducing IIAR's newest ANSI approved Standard:

IIAR 6-2019

American National Standard for Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Closed-Circuit Ammonia
Refrigeration Systems

IIAR 6 establishes the minimum requirements for inspection, testing, and maintenance (ITM) applicable to safe closed-circuit ammonia re-
frigeration systems. It is meant to aid in identifying what components should be inspected, tested, and maintained and how frequently these
tasks should be performed. This standard is intended to be incorporated as part of a Mechanical Integrity (MI) Program as recognized and
generally accepted good engineering practices (RAGAGEP). It can be used to perform a gap analysis for minimum safe requirements of an
owner’s existing ITM tasks as well as provide the minimum requirements for ITM record keeping responsibilities.

Also introducing:

ANSI/IIAR 7-2019

Developing Operating Procedures for Closed-Circuit Ammonia Refrigeration Systems

In 2013, the first issue of IIAR 7 replaced the operations information contained in IIAR Bulletin No. 110, Guidelines for Start-Up, Inspection,
and Maintenance of Ammonia Mechanical Refrigerating Systems.

This standard was first approved as an American National Standard by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in August 2013.
ANSI requires reaffirmation or revision for periodic maintenance requirements of existing standards every five years. Work began on period-
