Industrial Skid Systems

Skid System

Skid systems can be complicated – designing and selecting components for a successful chemical feed system can be difficult, expensive, and require long lead times.

Components of Pump Skid Systems

Typically, manufacturers assemble the components of skid systems, although pump providers will sometimes buy individual parts and put together complete skids if necessary. The following are the components of pump skid systems:

Pumps

Each skid system will have a different centrifugal pump depending on its intended use. It’s possible for the system to have simply one pump or several pumps, depending on the skid.

Applications requiring temperatures of 660 degrees Fahrenheit or less are ideal for air-cooled centrifugal pumps. For temperatures over that, water-cooled pumps are utilized, albeit the maximum safe temperature for such a pump is around 750 degrees Fahrenheit.

Filters

Debris and particles can cause the pump to back up, but filters keep them out. These filters should be made in such a way that they trap dust and debris without reducing the fluid flow.

Extra pressure can be avoided by replacing them (or removing them to clean them, if it is possible with the skid’s design).

Pressure Gauges

Pressure gauges are a standard feature on pump skids, serving to do just that: measure the pump’s pressure. In order to keep the input and output pressures where they should be, careful monitoring is required. Suction is measured by the intake pressure gauge, while discharge is monitored by the outlet gauge.

Control Systems

Control panels are commonly used as mechanical or electrical pump control systems that are included on pump skids.

These panels often include on/off switches, motor starters, indicator lights, and the ability to select a certain pump. These knobs and switches need to be watertight if they are to be used on outdoor pumps.

Piping

The fluid passes through the skid-mounted piping when pressure is applied by the centrifugal pump.

Both the intake and exit sides of the pump are connected to piping, which is often supported independently to prevent undue strain on the pump.

These pipes may need to be insulated in order to endure pressure or temperatures, depending on the use.

Valves

Valve-equipped pump skids are typically used to regulate the centrifugal pumps’ pressure, limit flow, and perform emergency shut-offs.

Industrial Applications of Pump Skids

These pump skids are the most popular and often used:

Water and Wastewater Pump Skids

These industrial pump packages are used for a number of water-related tasks, such as wastewater treatment, rainwater collection, and water filtration.

Chemical Pump Skids

There is a wide variety of uses for chemical pump packages. Chemical dosing, blending, and injection are all part of this process.

Pulp and Paper Pump Skids

In the pulp and paper industry, these pump skids are commonly utilized and have chemical metering and injection equipment.

CHEM-FEED® Skid System Upgrades

Blue-White offers four different pipe materials on our skids to ensure maximum chemical compatibility. In addition, we provide an optional pressure switch and back pressure valve. Customizable options are also available.

Advantages of a Skid System

  • Streamlined start-up

    Ships fully assembled for easy installation, saves time during start-ups

  • Cost effective

    Less expensive than having a contractor run piping and instruments

  • Simplifies maintenance

    Much better site maintenance compared to pumps mounted on barrels

  • Saves floorspace

    Saves space on plant floor especially when wall mounted
