A skid-mounted system is a great idea for several reasons. Since everything is located in one place, it’s easy to access whether the system needs testing or maintenance. Skid systems are ready for start-up as soon as they are delivered thanks to thorough testing before shipment.

Most skid systems can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of each job site. Whether it’s for cooling, heat transfer, metering, pumping and more, skid mounted systems ensure safe handling of hazardous liquids. A custom built package may include filtration, instrumentation, grounding, valves, pumps, meters, high-level shut-off, and ticket printing systems. Skid systems are used in several industries including fluid handling to safely manage hazardous fuels. Another great aspect of skid systems is that they integrate easily with loading rack systems for trucks and rail cars.

Auxiliary systems including loading skid control panels should meet or exceed industry standards whether you’re using the system to move oil, gas, or chemicals. Make sure you receive all documentation and skid designs for approval before construction begins. Components should be selected based on project requirements and suitability for the intended service. Once complete, the system will be tested to insure exceptional service once the system reaches the project site.

When looking to purchase a skid-mounted system, find a turn-key operation where all skid components will been assembled, wired and tested in one place. This makes your life easier since there’s a single source for everything. When the system is delivered it’s ready to start up and there should be very little downtime involved. All controls and accessories are delivered at the same time also, to avoid lost parts.

Skid systems are designed for precision control and operation – even in a hazardous environment. Depending on job requirements, systems can include:

  • a
 flow monitoring and control system
  • high-pressure injection service
  • mixing tank, mixer and tank level control
  • compact design for limited spaces
  • stainless steel construction for corrosive environments.
