With valuable and highly perishable stock being handled you need to feel confident in your refrigeration contractor, whether you’re handling meat, poultry, fish or potatoes!

Customers who have helped to build our food production and processing expertise include Greencore Foods, Albert Bartletts, Inverawe Smokehouse, Braehead SFO, Caledonia Cheese and Campbell’s Prime Meats.

ACE recently carried out a large programme of refrigeration works for Castle MacLellan as part of the expansion of their pâté processing plant at Kirkcudbright.

ACE had responsibility for the design and installation of two blast chills, meat chill, vegetable chill, two new dairy chills, a blast topping chill room, a new topping blast freezer, defrost room, a freezer room and a chill store as well as prep holding chill, temperature controlled holding room and an alcohol store.

The newly installed air handling units use a sock air distribution system to minimise pollution.

The control system for the defrost room utilises a Eurotherm Nanodac twin loop controller with a custom designed control logic program. This bespoke programme was designed by ACE as there is no proprietary defrost room controller available.
