Frozen and Chilled Food Processing

Our advanced systems have solved some of the biggest problems ever faced by companies in the frozen and chilled food industry.

Our groundbreaking ClusterBuster, for example, breaks down frozen blocks of products into individual pieces, IQF, allowing for more accurate weighing and inspecting, and more effective downstream processing.

Then there are our glazing conveyors, which can add value to your products by improving their visible appearance while vastly prolonging their freezer and display life, not to mention increasing yields.

Machinery for Frozen and Chilled Food Processing


Grading Conveyors

Suitable for fines removal and slithers, broken, oversized, undersized, different fractions, or otherwise unsatisfactory produce. Ideal for the frozen food production lines as it is a gentle process. Our grading conveyors have been used to grade any fruit or vegetables into different sizes.

Elevating Products

If you need to split your factory over multiple levels we have many different options to elevate and lower your products.

Spiral Elevators – can safely move your products to different levels without compromising their integrity

Bucket Elevators – make it possible to move your produce between different levels. And the conveyor systems have much smaller footprints

Swan Neck Conveyors – allow you to make the most of your available space without compromising on speed, efficiency, or safety


Feeding Multihead Weighers

In our experience optimising the feed to a multihead weigher can lead to the fastest return on investment in the industries we work in. We can save 5% giveaway across your line and our conveyors are energy efficient and easy to hygiene.

Infeed Freezer - Cox & Plant

Freezer Infeed and Outfeed

We have the perfect solution to feed your freezers, ensuring a monolayer of the product prior to freezing.

Inspection Conveyors - Cox & Plant

Inspection Conveyor

Inspection conveyors evenly spread your product to ensure that nothing escapes the careful eyes of your quality control team.

Vibratory Conveyors - Cox & Plant

Vibratory Conveyors

Vibratory conveyors are superior to standard conveyor belts as they are quieter, more compact, more efficient, and much easier to clean and service. They also have gentle handling and we have developed a contact surface specifically for the salad sector.
Metering Conveyors - Cox & Plant

Metering Conveyors

Metering conveyors create an even feed as well as spread of product. This will guarantee a sustainable input of product at the start of your production line, which will optimise each line operation.

Gated Distribution System - resize

Distribution Systems

Product flows through the main line distribution conveyors where each of the “junctions” can be called from the multihead weigher to deliver product. This ensures no starvation and all the multihead’s are replenished on demand with ready to pack product.
