Pressure release mechanism brochure released

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

flood brochure coverSSC has just released their new brochure on the Pressure Release Mechanism.

This cover is undergoing live testing with United Utilities to see how it performs in a flood problem area. There is also significant interest from a European water company.

SSC have been working on the design for over 12 months now which allows the escape of air pressure or water in heavy rain/flood conditions. The cover remains locked at all times but is spring loaded.

If pressure builds beneath the cover then it automatically releases but the cover remains within the frame. If a vehicle wheel runs over the cover it is designed to lock back down in position. This will also happen if a person stands on the cover.

New design engineers join the team.

Monday, August 1st, 2016

SSC has have had some change in their design department. We are delighted to announce that two new engineers have joined our team, Adam West and Om Rai who are post graduates.

Adam West is a Northumbria University Graduate, with a 2:1 in Mechanical engineering BEng (Hons).

His final year project was to develop a means test the mechanical properties of Epoxy-Graphene Nanocomposites and the effects of weight ratio within the composition. His final year option was “Digital Design and Analysis” using FEA analysis to develop a new or existing product. He has been involved in manufacturing projects, including a fully functioning Stirling engine, developing an optimised heat sink unit, rolling mill for precious metals and a Pipe heat exchanger.

Om Rai studied Mechanical Engineering at University of Greenwich where he achieved BEng (Hons) in May 2014 with Upper 2.1 and obtained PgDip in Advance Manufacturing Systems in June 2015 from Brunel University.
