Placer Process Systems is a company that specializes in designing and building customized sanitary process systems for various industries. Placer Process Systems has successfully addressed the needs of a beverage manufacturer by designing and installing a frame-mounted system for heating and cooling juice while integrating it with the existing process. Below is further information on why Placer Process frame-mounted process systems are advantageous for your existing plant upgrades, expansion, modernization, and/or retrofit to your food, beverage, dairy, brewery, winery, alternative foods, and cannabis manufacturing processes.
Advantages of Frame Mounted Process Systems
Frame-mounted process systems, also known as skid-mounted systems, offer several advantages in industrial and commercial applications. These advantages make them a popular choice for various processes and industries. These systems are typically pre-fabricated offsite, and the various components, equipment, and instrumentation are mounted onto a single frame for ease of transportation, installation, and operation. Frame-mounted systems are commonly used in various industries, including manufacturing, chemical processing, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, dairy, brewery, winery, and more. Here are some key characteristics and advantages of frame-mounted process systems:
1. Modular Design
Frame-mounted systems are modular in nature, allowing different components such as pumps, tanks, valves, filters, instruments, and controls to be integrated onto a single frame. This modular design simplifies customization, maintenance, and upgrades.
2. Offsite Fabrication
Much of the system fabrication is completed offsite in controlled environments, reducing the need for extensive on-site construction. This leads to quicker project timelines and lower installation costs.
3. Ease of Installation
Frame-mounted systems are designed for easy installation at the customer’s site. They can be transported as a single unit and require minimal on-site assembly and interconnection.
4. Compact Footprint
By mounting components on a single frame, the system’s footprint is minimized, which is especially beneficial in situations where space is limited.
5. Quality Control
Components can be fabricated and tested in a controlled environment before installation, ensuring higher quality and reducing the likelihood of errors or defects.
Frame-mounted systems can integrate various components seamlessly, enabling efficient communication and operation between different parts of the process.
7. Reduced Downtime
Offsite fabrication and streamlined installation processes help minimize production downtime during system installation or upgrades.
Frame-mounted systems can be easily relocated or modified as process requirements change. New components or modifications can be added without major disruptions.
9. Hygiene and Cleanliness
In industries where sanitation is crucial (such as food and beverage or pharmaceuticals), frame-mounted systems can be designed with sanitary features and materials to ensure product quality and safety.
10. Cost Efficiency
Frame-mounted systems can lead to cost savings in terms of labor, installation, and maintenance compared to traditional on-site construction.
Common applications of frame-mounted process systems include:
Batch reactors, mixing systems, chemical dosing, and filtration systems.
Water purification, filtration, and wastewater treatment systems.
Food and Beverage
Beverage processing, pasteurization, mixing, and packaging systems.
API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) production, purification, and formulation systems.
Boiler feedwater systems, cooling tower systems, and cogeneration units.
