Newly Expanded Test Center in Dijon France Facilitates More-Comprehensive Unit Tests for Critical Packages where On-Site Installations do not allow for any Uncertainties during Site Commissioning
Dijon, France, February 2, 2021 – Sundyne, a global leader in the design and manufacture of mission critical pumps and compressors, today announced an expansion to its testing facility in Dijon, France, which is designed to provide customers with a wider range of pump & compressor tests prior to deployment.
Sundyne’s manufacturing & testing facility in Dijon has been expanded by 1200 m2 – and the new space is dedicated to package assembly and complete unit tests on larger machines. The testing facility leverages the combined expertise of Sundyne’s engineering, manufacturing and testing departments. Skilled experts from each group are working together to run tests on compressor and pump packages that mimic the exact manner in which they will operate once deployed at an end-user’s site.
An additional 11 kV electrical supply has been installed in the facility with a Variable Frequency Drive to start-up and run any kind of AC Motor – from 11kV to low voltage, thanks to intermediate voltage transformers. Testing services include: job motor, job auxiliaries, job control systems, job process equipment and other services. In addition to bringing customers a greater level of confidence, Sundyne’s complete test packages also increase time and cost savings, by helping customers avoid lengthy adjustments on-site during commissioning.
“Many of the world’s largest refineries, petrochemical manufacturers and power plants depend on Sundyne equipment for critical applications that run on a 24X7 basis, and there can be no surprises or uncertainties when it comes to how our pumps & compressors will operate in these environments,” said Joël Heux, General Manager, Sundyne International, S.A. “Our newly-expanded testing facility enables us to conduct highly specific tests that give our customers peace-of-mind that Sundyne equipment will meet their needs, and function precisely as expected once it is installed.”
