Turnkey Lab Solutions
Would you like to be able to run quality tests and take material samples during the ongoing production process and, at the same time, carry out the associated analysis in your own company? This is no problem with the turnkey laboratory solutions from OCS!
We have successfully implemented numerous laboratory projects for many well-known companies and groups in the polymer and petrochemical industries. We will work with you to plan and realise your own test laboratory, individually tailored to the particular needs and requirements of your company. As an EPC contract partner (Engineering, Procurement, Construction), we not only check the feasibility of your turnkey project, but also take care of its budgeting.
To make the whole process as efficient as possible, we provide you with your personal contact partner, who is always available to you in all aspects of consulting, planning, negotiating with subcontractors, implementation, equipment, certification and training. With regard to the core topics of research and development, quality control, analytics and physical and mechanical testing, you are in the best of hands with our OCS experts. Let us work with you to improve and optimise your processes and products.
The needs, requirements and goals of your company are the core issues in the consulting phase. The first step is to determine your exact requirements, such as the scope of work, schedule and applicable standards. Our experienced experts will support and advise you in all matters.
Depending on your needs, we design state-of-the-art, functional plant laboratories or upstream technology and R&D centres.
Based on your individual requirements, our team will design a tailor-made solution proposal. This includes layout drawings and takes into account the supply distribution system, safety concept, chemical waste disposal and optimal location for sample preparation and sequence. It further addresses aspects such as gas chromatography, air conditioning, physical laboratory, clean room and production laboratory. When planning each laboratory area, the safety of the laboratory staff is always the first priority.
The heart of every laboratory is the instrument list, which includes each instrument, its supply and space demands and its intended location in the laboratory. Our internal, constantly updated database contains a wide range of analytical instruments from various manufacturers for your requirements.
Device and Furniture Integration
Our modular supply distribution system is invisibly integrated into the laboratory furniture. It is easy to maintain and can be expanded if necessary. We test each unit for its supply requirements with regard to power, water, cooling water, ventilation, high-purity technical gases, extraction, safety showers, chemicals, storage, waste, etc. In addition, we pay close attention to maximum safety, environmental health and ergonomics, right from the start.
We offer tailor-made analysis packages for every plastic licence, from such suppliers as Borealis, Dow, Equistar, Exxon-Mobil, Ineos, LyondellBasell, Mitsui Chemicals and Lummus Novolen® Technology.
This includes the following devices:
- Spectroscope and chromatograph
- Online and offline polymer analysers
- Material testing instruments
- Physical measuring devices for polymers
- Elemental analysers
- Gas analysers
- Environmental test equipment
- Oil metres
- Sample station
- Polymer plants (laboratory scale or production scale)
We use state-of-the-art CAD tools for the design, planning and placement of the furniture, as well as for the planning of the extraction systems, gas pipes and electrical supply. We then integrate all of the furnishing elements into the architectural drawings of the building and create 3D animations. Our long-standing partnership with the German manufacturer Waldner, a specialist in integrated laboratory furniture systems, guarantees the flexible and high-quality realisation of your requirements.
We control projects with professional management tools such as Primavera and Microsoft Project. On request, we can also implement any software necessary to meet your requirements and to make coordination as easy as possible.
During construction, we set up a site office and hire a local project team led by an experienced site engineer.
We naturally also take care of the complete procurement and delivery of the analysis packages you need. This service includes:
- Clarification of all technical details and configurations with the manufacturers
- Through inspection at the OCS site (visual and functional tests wherever possible)
- Storage until installation
- Current reports and flexible handling
We organise and attend to all logistics according to your requirements and wishes. Our range of services includes:
- Appropriate packaging for sea/air freight
- Customs clearance including all necessary export/import documents
- Storage on demand
At the end of the implementation phase, we manage the commissioning of the laboratory on site and have all devices and equipment checked by our experts and representatives of the various companies. The first tests can also be used as a training for future operators. Finally, we provide you with a detailed commissioning report for each device.
Our experts conduct training courses with your staff on the optimal utilisation of your new laboratory. Your employees receive hands-on instruction in the individual operating processes on their own devices, including operation, maintenance and troubleshooting. We carry out training both on-site and on the premises of the device manufacturers, as required.
After completion of the training measures, we support you in the final commissioning of the laboratory. This includes:
- Review of all documentation
- Fine-tuning of the procedures
- Feedback for continuous optimisation
- If necessary, an independent OCS inspection
Overall responsibility for your individual & turnkey laboratory solution
“OCS demonstrated an extremely high degree of flexibility during the specification and procurement phase, which for us was an essential indication of our success. Thereby, assuming a high level of overall responsibility in the provision of instruments, essential for the construction of the building and the requirements for analytical availability. Sadara Case.
Complete understanding of your project requirements
“We are very satisfied with the entire process and the delivery of the project, especially the installation, commissioning and training of our staff. In order to completely understand and implement our project requirements, we rely on the extensive experience of OCS. Saudi Kayan Case.
