NO. Normally, the public tends to compare the prices of CMPs with the prices of blast chillers or freezers of normal technology, making a mistake, since these technologies are not comparable neither in terms of results nor in terms of prices.
The only technology which it could be compared is with cryogenic technology (nitrogen) since it is the one that obtains the most similar results to those obtained with CMPs.
The CMP are more expensive than a blast chiller or than a normal freezer and cheaper than a cryogenic freezing line since they do not use consumable gas for each frozen kg.
Its wide use in Asia DO demonstrate that it is a profitable technology.
NO. The machines are paid according to the conditions imposed by the manufacturer, which are always the following: 50% in advance of the order and 50% remaining 20 days before shipment from Japan.
Depends on model type and stock in Japan. Typically small models take 3 months from order date and larger models can take up to 6 months. It should be noted that transport from Japan by ship takes one month.
NO. PROTON EUROPE is the official and exclusive distributor of PROTON® for Europe and America, so any contact or question should contact the Distributor directly.
All contacts that Japan receives from any of these territories are immediately forwarded to PROTON EUROPE.
In Japan they are very strict on this matter, and it is frowned upon that anyone interested in our products contacts both the distributor and the manufacturer, which they consider as a sign of little seriousness in business.
