Skid mounted loading systems have lots of plusses. They’re ideal for use with hazardous chemicals because they ensure safe handling and accuracy in measuring product due to their excellent filtration, pumps, valves, grounding, accurate metering and more.

Another benefit packaged skid systems provide is the protection your employees experience since toxic spills are far less likely to happen. Workers can better handle dangerous liquids including caustic, bio-diesel, and ethanol. It’s also possible to design an integrated loading rack system for tank trucks and rail cars.

Skid systems are made of highly durable galvanized steel and can fit in a smaller footprint than other equipment would. Also, since everything’s on one skid, it’s simple to install so there’s less down time. When maintenance is needed all parts are located in one place and are within easy reach.

Skid mounted systems can be customized to the specific requirements of a company’s work site making these systems highly versatile. For example, if your company required a load-out system with custody transfer metering capabilities and six bottom-loading arms, then six vertical metering systems would be set up and tested to ensure absolute accuracy. Once complete, the system is delivered ready to install and use right away.

Considering the current demand for oil, a system like this can help your business correctly meter, load and unload these liquids. Systems are job-specific, so they can be constructed to your exact needs – not some pre-built system that requires you change your processes.

There are several types of skid mounted liquid custody transfer systems that help companies improve their processes and handle hazardous liquids more safely:

  • Top or bottom loading
  • Multi-station loading and unloading
  • Fluid blending, injection and metering
  • Custody transfer systems for crude oil, bio-fuels and LPG
  • Loading/offloading applications for tank trucks and rail cars
  • Terminal truck loading and blending systems for gasoline and diesel
  • Optional integration with your current control system

Other benefits include:

  • Reduced installation time (tested before shipping)
  • Compact design for limited space on the job site
  • Built to be low maintenance and provide easy access
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Improved reliability and operating safety
  • Turnkey systems for one responsibility source

Dealing with a turnkey company, you have one contact for the entire process of design, supply and guaranteeing the products. This avoids possible problems between suppliers.

Engineers at Carbis Fluid Handling have extensive knowledge of skid-mounted systems so they can evaluate, design, construct and test a system that will meet your company’s needs, industry requirements and make handling hazardous liquids safer, more efficient and provide better throughput.
