Problem Solving Life Design

At Suncombe our focus when designing your system is to meet your individual wants and needs. Through our design in PFD, P&ID, Schematics and Circuit Diagrams in ACAD as well as the use of our 3D Modelling in Autodesk Inventor we have the ability to design your machine with the ability for you to share your comments at every stage of its building. In addition, Formal risk assessments (HAZOP, FMEA) and design reviews would be carried out as part of and throughout the detail design and construction of the system. 

Transparent Manufacturing

At Suncombe we take pride in knowing clients have absolute confidence in our manufacturing practices and capabilities. Our design ethos means that our systems are of sanitary design; ensuring no deadlegs or product retention areas. Further we comply with ASME Bioprocessing equipment guidelines at all times; and additionally require all equipment and materials to be validatable with complete documentation. This transparency is passed on to our clients in the form of data manuals (including instruction), operation and maintenance manuals, design drawings, and schedules etc. We keep a clear and open channel of communication with our clients at all stages and are happy to provide documentation when needed.

Installation and Commissioning

All Suncombe systems are put through a Factory Acceptance Test Protocol which you the client witness and once we know your needs are met, we can deliver and install your Suncombe system for you. Whether you need your system delivered in a few large segments or broke down and delivered in individual parts we will do what we can to meet your individual needs.

Servicing Machine, Health Checks & User Training

When purchasing a Suncombe system, we give all of our client’s extensive automation training explaining how to use your system allowing maximum efficiency and reducing labour time considerably. Additionally, we provide all clients with an equipment spares list and opportunity to sign for a maintenance contract. This allows our engineers to easily order any spare parts needed and install/replace it as quickly as possible. Each maintenance contract would be unique to your individual needs and is dependent on which system you purchase. Health checks included in our maintenance contract would include health checks on the majority of your systems components. (Seals, pumps, valves, transmitters, regulators, switches and indicators. In addition to this our engineer would also check control components such as power supplies, back up batteries, touch panels, relays, timers and bulbs.)
