For over 40 years, Startec has been one of the most trusted names in commercial, industrial and recreational refrigeration. The reliability of your mission critical systems is our top priority, driving all aspects of our business from initial design and component selection to facility construction and service scheduling.
Startec's highly-trained team provides mission critical services for the complete range of refrigeration systems, compressors and control systems including: Inventory Replacement, Expert Troubleshooting, Life Cycle Analysis and Preventative Maintenance Agreements.
Startec maintains an extensive parts inventory. If a critical piece of equipment breaks down, there is a high likelihood that we have the right part in stock ready for immediate replacement, with no waiting for a next-day courier shipment.
The industry's most knowledgeable and experienced service team provides 24/7 refrigeration service, diagnosing and correcting operational issues in complex multi-stage systems.
Startec covers the complete refrigeration system life cycle from initial design to ongoing service for projects such as: new facilities, plant expansion, heat recovery systems, freon system replacement and more.
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.
Startec refrigeration systems have created platforms for recreation, entertainment and competition at all levels from small town arenas to Olympic luge and bobsled tracks.
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.
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.
We diagnose and correct operational issues that arise in recreational ice systems including:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.Contact Us
