Skids are heavy-duty metal platforms used for holding industrial machinery and equipments.Skids can be used in any industry where storing and transportation of heavy equipment and machineries are necessary.
Types of skids:
Equipment skids – these are used for a range of industrial application for the holding and transportation of equipments.
Oil Field skids – are used for wireline logging, mud tanks, control rooms and many more needs.
Pump skids – are used in the oil field process and chemical plant needs
Custom skids- manufactured to meet unique requirements
Materials Use To Construct Skids:
• Carbon steel
• Stainless steel
Skids can be blasted, primed and painted and can also be insulated with the use of polyurethane spray. Skids are usually designed to consider loading, lifting and transportation issues as well as weight limitations.Environmental loads such as wind, wave and seismic activity must meet a variety of different codes and standards.
Process for skid construction:
A skid designer plays a very important role in the skid manufacturing process as they are responsible for creating structural and piping designs according to the specifications required by the customer.
An experienced designer can reduce the project timeline, knows industry standards and can effectively complete a design given limited space to work in. A skid designer has to be creative to bring the specification of the skid to life.
Skid studies are performed to ensure the design meets the challenges and the specifications as requested by the customer:
Lifting, environmental and transportation studies are conducted to ensure that the skid can be lifted, transported to site and withstand the environmental load Dynamic Skid Analysis focuses on rotating or reciprocating machines. Assessment is conducted to assess the vibration and dynamic stress amplitudes in the skid structure and components mounted on the skid to identify if modification is required
Conducting these studies will ensure the following:
• Skid design will meet and comply with regulated standards
• Ensure safe lifting, transportation operations
• Optimize skid cost by reducing unnecessary equipment and modification
• Ensure sufficient stiffness at key locator to avoid vibration problems for components mounted on the skid
Skid manufacturing companies have been in existence for a long time and most specialize in making skids to specific customization. When choosing a company, flexibility and reliability are two important factors to consider.
Testing prior to purchasing is recommended and being involved in the project throughout the whole process will ensure your desired specification is adhered too.
