Why Choose a Skidded/Modular System?

Our clients are faced with many challenges in their industrial settings that skidded mounter or modular systems can meet. For example, building a modular system off-site expedites the construction process. Shop construction provides ready access to construction equipment, fabrication without weather related delays, and construction without delays due to work permitting. Since the efforts of personnel at most production companies are dedicated to running the plant, sourcing new process systems to an outside company allows plant engineers and other staff to keep their plant running uninterrupted and perform their daily obligations. Also, building off-site skidded or modular systems allows for the design, fabrication, and testing to be performed prior to delivery which minimizes interruptions in plant site operation. Furthermore, prices for skidded systems are quoted for the complete unit which typically saves the client unplanned expenses as compared to jobs that are bid as T&M.

Benefits of ACT Skid Systems:

  • Fully Automated and Integrated Turnkey Systems
  • Cost Savings
  • Complete Package Pricing for Accurate Budgeting
  • Stream-lined Start-up Time
  • Reduced Installation Cost
  • Shipped Fully Assembled
  • Quick Lead Times
  • On-Time Delivery
  • FAT (Factory Acceptance Testing) Performed Prior to Shipping
  • Complete Installation and Commissioning
  • Best Choice for Construction in Remote Locations
  • Off-site Construction without Interrupting Current System Operations
  • Efficient and Quality Fabrication
  • Project Manager Assigned as a Single Point of Contact for Your Project
  • Configured to Meet Safety and Regulatory Requirements
  • Portability/Relocation of Skid System Needed
  • Optional Designs to Fit shipping containers
  • Confidentiality Assurance
  • Maintenance Support
Some companies find that a better alternative to small skid mounted systems are modular systems that can be trailer mounted. Trailer mounting a modular system allows the client to move the process from one location to another providing flexibility and savings for processes that do not run 24/7.
