in the field. Across the life sciences spectrum, including oncology, immunology, neuroscience, or animal health, CES Laboratory Freezers are contributing
to important fundamental research!

                   Are you ready to create the future?
                                                                                                                                           Advanced Health Research!

 The Future of Protein … CESGROUP has the answer

CESGROUP has the answer to the plant-based meat craze, having supplied multiple freezing solutions to most of the key players in this emerging market.
Ranging from Cryogenic tumblers to tunnel freezers our dedicated team of engineers and craftsmen successfully integrated several high-quality sanitary processing lines.
Plant-based protein has a positive impact on the planet and can provide many health benefits by reducing saturated fats while increasing vitamin and fiber intake.
With the offerings on the table today consumers have a great variety of flavors and tastes to choose from.
Now that mainstream fast-food establishments are joining the effort, growth in this segment is exploding. So, if you’re investing in plant-based protein, invest in CES!

Go grow your Protein!

CES Freezing Technology
Provides the Lowest Cost of Ownership!

In today’s fast paced economy it is more important than ever to consider the overall cost of ownership for every investment made. It’s true that CES may not be the least expensive initial equipment option; it’s also true that CES provides the lowest cost of ownership in the industry. Innovative designs combined with high quality components can reduce the yearly cost of CES equipment by as much as 90% compared to its competitors.

Direct Drive Design reduce maintenance and downtime while improving hygiene
The CES direct drive design eliminates the need for drive chains and daily maintenance. This reduces overall operating and sanitation costs. Keeping these gear motors outside of the freezer and product zone improves service accessibility. It also virtually eliminates product contamination risks and greatly improves the cleanliness of the equipment.

High quality components are less expensive in the long run
Using quality components designed for the application is the right thing to do and, CES feels, the only way to do it. There is a simple reason CES opts to use proportional valves over solenoids to control the system temperature: because they’re better. Sure, it worked in the 50’s when energy was cheap but it doesn’t work in the 21st century when efficiency is key to every business. Modern components made by industry leaders are also easier to source and maintain.

Energy efficient and compact designs provide more savings per footprint
Efficiency is a key consideration in freezer design. Efficiency demands that one consider the best technologies available for both insulation and air velocities. Most manufacturers are content using of-the-shelf SIP’s (structural insulated panels). CES engineers go the extra mile to design application-specific insulated panels and airflows. CES designs and manufactures these panels to not only reduce heat loss in the system but also to fit the unique layout and configuration of the application. Efficiency and purpose-built design save the customer money!

Designated CES service technicians are ready to assist 24/7 to limit expensive production downtimes
Unlike some companies, CES maintains a full staff of dedicated service technicians to support their customers. In fact, CES guarantees a response time of 24 hours or less. Many of CES’ freezers have remote Ethernet-based VPNs integrated in their controls. This allows instant troubleshooting anywhere in the world. With two physical manufacturing facilities and four application engineering offices located in Europe and North America,
CES provides the best service in the business.

Boy Scouts of America Visit CES Freezing Technology!

CES Freezing Technology welcomed a visit from the Boy Scouts of America for a guided tour in our North America manufacturing facility. Local Boy Scouts troop 803 was very interested in learning more about industrial manufacturing, including 3D modeling, laser cutting, metal forming, CNC machining and TIG welding.
These young men were very interested in learning more about the engineering and design work going into our freezing and cooling equipment. Highlighting the different facets of industrial design and manufacturing really demonstrated the variety of skill and education options available in this industry. The computer aided drafting, software simulations and hands-on fabrication of different materials was eye-opening for this future generation. We hope that we helped instill some genuine interest and maybe planted the seeds for a couple future engineers and craftsmen.

Monster Gearbox

For the latest CES Freezing Technology creation we are installing the largest drum drive gearbox we’ve ever used.
This monster gearbox has a torque rating of 310,000 Nm or 229,000 ft-lbs. with a near 300mm or 12inch hollow bore shaft and weighs in at around 2.5 tons.
It will fit neatly on top of the drum drive shaft and provide the typical direct drive advantage that allows our customers to run trouble free for many years to come.
This particular mechanical spiral freezer has a 1.2 meter or 48 inch wide belt with 37 spiral tiers and is designed to freezer 8 tons of croquettes per hour.
The unique design of the Ashworth PosiDrive® belting in combination with our custom engineered spiral cage allow us to maintain product orientation and
greatly simplifies the belt speed control system.
