Food and Beverage – Legacy System Upgrades

Experts in Integrating Modern Controls with Food & Beverage Legacy Systems

When capital is tight, retrofitting existing equipment with new controls in your food and beverage plant can deliver many of the same benefits as new equipment at a substantially lower cost. When equipment is mechanically sound but the control system is obsolete, a control system replacement is a very cost-effective solution.

Matrix Technologies has managed thousands of legacy upgrade projects for food and beverage manufacturers. We can help you eliminate the risks of obsolete systems, preserve your investment in existing applications, and convert to modern, new hardware and software platforms. You can have state-of-the-art capabilities to manage recipes and campaigns, track lots, capture and analyze historical data, ensure security, and comply with S88 and FDA standards.

Our engineers carefully analyze your current system, custom applications, and reporting needs. We apply proven methods for reusing I/O and wiring, shadowing operation of existing systems, and rapid cut-over to minimize downtime while installing and commissioning new systems. We also provide comprehensive training for your plant personnel and detailed system specifications.
