The recent introduction in 2016 of the S.U.® Control System is a typical example of Lagarde’s contribution in the development of retorts (autoclaves) technologies – enabling perfect temperature / pressure control, as well as full traceability.

We are the first manufacturer to have developed an automatic regulation system based on an industrial PC, in full accordance with our sustainable development involvement. S.U.® smartly combines the functions of an automation, recorder and control interface. This software is a proud creation of Lagarde Autoclaves, and we guarantee it will offer you a flawless user experience and direct support from the Control System manufacturer.

Thanks to our experience with Samantha, patented retort (autoclave) management system created in 2005, S.U.® has a top notch precision level, perfectly controlling the thermal treatment of any type of product in any kind of packaging. Even the most fragile packaging can be easily processed, maintaining its shape and integrity, as well as its main point: organoleptic qualities.

THIS SYSTEM IS DESIGNED FOR SUSTAINABILITY USER FRIENDLINESS AND CONVENIENCE OF USE.
