Skid Fabrication

The Advantage of Sanitary Process and Utility Skid Fabrication

Skid mounting sanitary process and utility assemblies improve process quality, shortens project timeline, reduces project costs, and lessens the risk for both contractor and customer.

Placer Process has years of experience with building skid-mounted sanitary process and utility skid systems for food, beverage, dairy, cheese, winery, and brewery projects. This manufacturing experience offers a well-rounded capability in the building process of process and utility skid systems for sanitary process areas, non-sanitary utility rooms, washdown environments, as well as compliance with the 3-A and PMO standards, as needed.

Our systems can incorporate various piping and frame materials, flexibility, and modularity to fit your current sanitary skid system project needs and plant standards. This accommodation includes tank, pump, valve, and instrumentation preferences that you can specify.

Placer Process has the experience and capabilities to design, construct, and build multiple complete prefabricated sanitary process skid systems within the controlled manufacturing, fabrication, and testing site.

Skid Mounted Process Utility System

A Partnership Approach to Fabricating your Sanitary Process Skid System

A skilled and dedicated team of fabricators work hand-in-hand with the engineering team throughout the build to ensure Placer Process design and quality standards and customer specifications and expectations are achieved. As a general engineering contractor, Placer Process offers skid system fabrication and more. Find out about our other services here.

The Benefits of a Skid Mounted Sanitary Process and Utility System

Placer Process understands the importance of minimizing the interruption an upgrade, expansion, or process installation has on a manufacturing plant’s continuing production operations. Depending on the scope and size of a project, days, if not weeks, can be spent installing a new piece of equipment or process system. This not only creates a potential safety issue for the plant’s operators but also increases the chance of operation interruptions or risk of product contamination.

The prefabricated skid system solution for your sanitary process and utility system needs is to strategically design and layout all the major system components and its interconnecting piping assembly on a prefabricated structural frame, which can be installed on-site as a completely assembled, wired, and tested process system. This means the on-site work is reduced to bringing process lines, utility lines, and electrical power as required to the system points of connection which leads to a lower overall project cost and allows an expedited timeline to complete the project.

Our General Contractor Status Ensures an Seamlessly Integrated Project

Our skilled journeymen build custom process and utility skids, tanks, and control panels at our fully equipped production facility. Our journeymen work directly with the design team throughout the project to provide custom engineered and manufactured solutions to meet your process and schedule requirements. Before shipment, a factory acceptance test can be performed on our skid solution to confirm that the system is operating as specified and designed.
