New Smart Control System: Understand how & when to upgrade

Smart Post-Pack Sterilizers

Surdry’s latest equipment development program includes the concept of “smart” to describe post-pack sterilizers (batch and continuous) ready:

  • To communicate data to the food plant management systems (ERP, etc.).
  • To enable easy machine commissioning and after-sales service with remote connection and support.
  • To replace the sterilization process paper records with electronic records, in compliance with the FDA Code of Federal Regulations “21 CFR Part 11: Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures”.


Surdry has modernized the control system with new functionalities in a user-friendly and intuitive environment. With the new name of SteriNet21, it replaces SteriNet for more connectivity and better remote service.

SteriNet21 has been developed by Surdry IT experts using Rockwell Automation and Copa-data Zenon hardware and software.
