Process & Mechancal Engineering Capabilities

Synertec personnel demonstrate an outstanding process and mechanical engineering capability in the design of critical and complex systems. Synertec has the capabilities and expertise to scale up a process from the research bench to full production scale, accommodating projects large or small.

Synertec’s specialist capabilities include:

  • Feasibility studies and preliminary project budgets
  • Front End Engineering Design (FEED)
  • Site master-planning
  • Process & Mechanical Engineering
  • Scale-up of new products and processes
  • Modelling and optimisation of existing manufacturing operations
  • Design, installation and commissioning of utilities: HVAC, compressed gases, water, trade waste treatment, and other critical services
  • High Containment (PC/QC) Environments
  • HAZOP & HACCP review
  • Hazardous Area Classification & Design

Synertec’s Process & Mechanical Engineering is represented in the following industries;

Modelling & Design services

modelling and design service

Modelling & Design Capabilities

Synertec’s design office is equipped with multiple Computer Aided Design (CAD) Packages (AutoCAD, Plant3D, CADworx) and provides both 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional services.

The drafting office operates against ISO9001 and carries a library of drafting standards which are governed by applicable drafting procedures. Document Control software is utilised to ensure a three-tier review process is adhered to before the release of drawings to Clients. Synertec has intelligent drafting tools to create smart P&IDs, which link the P&ID to the 3D model.

In conjunction to CADworx, Elecdes is used for electrical and instrumentation design. This ensures consistency between the P&ID, 3D model and Electrical/Instrumentation database, and allows documentation such as instrument schedules, loop diagrams, line lists, equipment lists and bill of materials to be extracted from a single database.

Relevant Experience

Synertec’s designers are experienced with numerous design packages including:

  • Plant 3D
  • CADWorx
  • Elecdes
  • Revit
  • Navisworks

Facility Design Capabilities

Synertec’s process and mechanical engineers have expertise in facility design, in particular pharmaceutical facility and clean room design.  Synertec have a team of process and mechanical engineers who have experience performing all phases of a facility design project – from concept design through to commissioning and validation.

Our teams work with Clients to understand the requirements of the facility – from process services, through to control systems and requirements and regulations.  Supported by an in-house design and drafting team, Synertec engineers can fully document the facility design, including tender documentation for all sub-contractors and equipment suppliers, through to issued for construction drawings for the build of the facility.

The process and mechanical teams are heavily supported by the automation and electrical teams to ensure all elements of the facility – including control systems – can be incorporated in the design.

Our services include and are not limited to:

  • Process piping and tank design
  • Facility layout, schematics and architectural details
  • Instrumentation and control system design, including safety control system design if applicable
  • Process HVAC and heating/cooling systems design
  • Fire systems design
  • Providing a Hazardous Area Classification report for all areas of the new building
  • Provide advice on building requirements and constraints to the architect and consulting engineering team
  • Develop P&ID’s for the manufacturing and storage processes
  • 3D modelling
  • Develop a specification for pipes, valves, pumps, electrical equipment etc. for all processes, and services
  • Provide tender documentation
  • Risk management, change management, safety in design, FMEA and HAZOP studies
  • Pricing estimates for facility construction
  • Negotiations with EPA and other statutory bodies (FDA, TGA for example)
  • Coordinate town planning and building surveyor sign off
