Process skids are designed to contain a complete process system, a complete unit of operations or to organize a manufacturing process into logical units. All skids have the following characteristics in common:
Portable designâ because they are self-contained units, built within frames, skid systems are easier to transport than traditional process systems.
Small footprint â process skid frames allow equipment layering. Piping, tanks, and necessary process equipment can be fit into a smaller footprint with a skid design
Gathered process connections â process connections are gathered into one spot on the skid, making plant connections easier. In traditional process systems, connections are spread throughout the plant.
Controlled assembly â skids are typically built in controlled conditions offsite. Existing operations are not affected by skid fabrication.
FAT testing before installation â Factory acceptance testing (FAT) can be completed before modular process skids are shipped to site. This reduces the amount of on-site startup time.
Accessible layout â skids are designed for accessibility, usually including a center hallway, and major pieces of equipment placed around the edge of the frame.
