Design Concept: Modular Skid Construction

A key component and basis for fixed prices and short delivery times is the successful modular design concept of pre-manufactured skid-mounted equipment for CALORIC´s various types of gas generating and incineration plants.

As the design concept is modular the skids can be prefabricated and pre-assembled in our own workshop. With industry trends leading to more “shop” oriented and less “field” oriented project execution, it only made sense to provide pre-manufactured skids for our customers. Furthermore due to the complete and compact arrangement of pre-manufactured skids, the units are relatively easy to transport with almost negligible time of installation at place of destination.

Each plant consists of several numbers of skids, starting from a simple pump rack up to a highly developed Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) unit with a various number of pipelines, instrumentation and valves.

Following up to engineering and construction phase, we will provide services such as 3D-modeling, fabrication, assembly, painting, insulation, heat tracing, electrical and instrumentation of the skid.

Using modular skid design the manufacturing time is considerably shortened while the efficiency and safety of execution are improved. For many years now CALORIC manufactures and installs skids whereby we offer our clients a complete concept.

All of our shop fabrication passes a series of checks to ensure dimensional accuracy, completeness, weld quality, and conformance to the design and specifications. The finished product then undergoes testing as specified by the customer.

Typical tests utilized in our shop include: x-ray, dyepenetrant checks, hydrostatic and pneumatic testing for piping systems as well as point-to-point checks for instrumentation and electrical work (FAT – Factory Acceptance Test).

For your benefit, CALORIC has the capability to design, fabricate, install and commission skid-mounted gas generating or incineration plants, process vessels and modular process plant skids, covering a wide range for industrial facilities.

Step 01 – Pre-manufacturing of skid in CALORIC's production facility
Step 02 – Pre-assembly of the plant in CALORIC's production facility
Step 03 – Factory acceptance test in CALORIC's production facility
Step 04 – Easy transportation of container adapted modules
Step 05 – Placement of skid on prepared foundation
Step 06 – Assembly of the plant at site
Step 07 – Start-up of the plant
