Quality objective and policy of Broadbent Ltd.
High-speed rotating machines demand high standards of design, manufacture and application to ensure safety and reliability throughout their operational life.
Centrifuges require particular attention to the stressing of rotating parts, containment and interlocking of the centrifuge itself, as well as attention to the corrosion, erosion, toxic and flammable properties of the materials to be separated.
The essential standards are contained in BS.EN.12547:1999.
The Company operates a Quality System based on the requirements of BS.EN.ISO.9001 2000, and summarised in our Quality Manual. The Quality Manual and supporting procedures describe how the Company's Quality Policies regarding the application of the principles of controlled Quality Assurance are implemented. It also defines in detail the operating practices and procedures of all departments whose input or actions may affect the quality of its products and services.

Reliability : Get it right first time
Delivery : Get it to the customer on time
