Plug & Play – Skidding your way to plant updates

gas train 01

Updating a plant process or installing a replacement tank can be complex, expensive and horribly inconvenient. That’s why, regardless of the overwhelmingly obvious need, many plant managers delay or avoid the upgrades they’d otherwise love to have.

But what if the updating didn’t have to be as complex, expensive and difficult?

Today’s forward-thinking plant managers are increasingly turning to modular units or ‘skid systems’ for process performance additions, power systems, emergency back-up systems, and dozens of other applications.

While ‘flipping a switch’ might be a bit oversimplified, these convenient modular systems are as close to ‘plug and play’ as you can get. Designed and fabricated off-site, the skid is delivered to your plant and integrated into your existing process during a pre-planned short outage. The minimal installation time, expense, and trouble creates a cost effective solution while increasing performance.


Some of the functions that can be provided with a modular, skid-mounted system include:
 New, replacement, or increased performance heating/cooling exchangers
 Hydraulic power unit replacement/upgrades
 Replacement or new tank pumping and filtration systems
 Gas, liquid, or granular media control systems
 Back-up emergency system for a critical process
 Inefficient direct expansion refrigeration system replacements
 Gas and vapor compressor units
 Plant utility stations
 Your next process improvement!

The convenience and cost-effectiveness of modular skid systems make them an option that you must consider for your next plant upgrade or repair.
