Process and Environmental Skids
PCI manufactures a variety of Process and Environmental Skids to meet the most demanding design criteria. Examples of PCI Super Skids include Custom Pump packages, Chiller Skids, Boiler Skids, Medical Air and Vacuum Skids, Heat Exchanger Skids, Specialty Process Skids, and VAV Skids. Like our other products, EAS Mechanical Super Skids provide the highest quality solution to your project. Utilizing our fully welded structural steel bases and 3/16” Aluminum safety tread floor, PCI Mechanical Super Skids are second to none in quality and reliability. Process and Environmental Skids are manufactured in a controlled plant environment from start to finish which allows for total quality control and coordination. Our Mechanical Super Skids are the perfect solution for component replacement in existing buildings where space is limited. Skids are provided with all MEP components complete from the factory and can include independent control systems that can be tied into the building BAS. PCI can also perform complete factory testing on the skid as well as pre-commissioning services to greatly reduce field schedule and cost.
A modular process skid is a process system contained within a frame that allows the process system to be easily transported. Individual skids can contain complete process systems and multiple process skids can be combined to create larger process systems or entire portable plants. They are sometimes called “a system in a box.” An example of a multi-skid process system might include a raw materials skid, a utilities skid and a processing unit which work in tandem.
Process skids are considered an alternative to traditional stick-built construction where process system parts are shipped individually and installed incrementally at the manufacturing site. They provide the advantage of parallel construction, where process systems are built off-site in a fabrication facility while civil site upgrades are completed at the plant site simultaneously. Skids are not always appropriate. If individual process parts are large and cannot reasonably be contained within the frame of a modular process skid, traditional construction methods are preferred.
