proven examples of skid system success.

It's not just talk. The skid systems we design and build for our customers are not only highly reliable, they deliver performance that exceeds expectations.

Read on to see how we've helped other businesses like yours.

Dangerous Bacteria Closes Neighborhood Beach

Challenge: Reduce dangerous bacteria and microorganisms without the use of chemicals in this natural environment.

Solution: Use weighted curtains to partition off the area around the beach, then, using a filtration system (housed in a trailer on shore), draw water in from the bay, filter it, disinfect it by way of UV light, then discharge back into the bay.

Result: In previous years, Bernie's Beach closed multiple times during the summer. After the implementation of the system, the beach did not close once. 

Turbidity before implementation: 10 NTU

Turbidity after implementation: 2 NTU

*Drinking water specifications tolerate 5 NTU

Dairy Manufacturer Recovers Lost Product For Greater Profits

Challenge: Reclaim traditionally wasted product (butter) left over in transfer lines, line casualties, metal detector checks, and damaged wrapped butter.

Solution: Design, manufacture, and install a butter reclaim system that recovers product in two ways: CIP rinse of butter equipment; rework butter for oil recovery.

Result: The implementation of the system yielded dramatic results.

First rinse of butter equipment savings: $182,885/year

Rework for oil recovery: $540,450/year

Total yearly savings: $723,335/year 

System + Installation Cost: 6 Month Payback

Reinvented Chemical Nozzles Help Create Competitive Advantage

Challenge: Develop a nozzle to inject chemical and water into tank that will reduce water and electrical usage.

Solution: Designed a nozzle that fit competitor's pipe connections as well as meet performance expectations.

Result: Manufacturer is able to tout significant water and energy savings by using their chemicals and equipment.

Water Savings: $31,285/year

Pumping Energy Reduction: $1,669/year

Warm-up Cost Savings: $386,281/year

Chemical Savings: $50,000/year

Total Yearly Savings: $469,235/year

In-line Mixing Skid System Saves Space And Capital Cost

Challenge: Incomplete and inconsistent mixing batch process of 2-part glue (resin and catalyst) creates hot spots, resulting in product inconsistency and quality issues. Operator safety also in question due to manual handling of acid.

Solution: Design continuous, on-demand blending system that would reduce product waste, clean up, and variations in quality.

Catalyst would be injected at the tips of the agitator blades in the proper ration using a metering pump. Catalyst pump to ramp up and down based on the flow rate of the resin.

Result: The manufacturer significantly decreased product variations and "out of spec" product, increased efficiency, and experienced easier clean up. Operator no longer responsible for handling acids, eliminating potential for accidents.
