ADF’s 1-2-3 Approach to Modular Process Skids: Tailored to Your Needs

At ADF, we understand that every client has unique needs and challenges. That’s why we’ve developed our unique approach to modular process skids: “Skid 1-2-3” Engineer, Fabricate, Install.

This methodology, inspired by our successful “Piping 1-2-3” approach, is designed to deliver efficient and cost-effective solutions that are tailored to your specific requirements.

Step 1: Engineering

Our engineering process begins with a thorough understanding of your needs. We work closely with you to develop a skid design and layout that integrates seamlessly into your plant. This includes careful development of process design, utilities requirements, support considerations, maintenance access, and other specific requirements. Our team uses advanced technologies like 3D laser scanning to ensure accuracy and efficiency.

Step 2: Fabrication

Fabrication is carried out in a controlled shop environment, maximizing quality and adherence to engineering specifications. This offsite fabrication approach, adopted by our leading partner-fabricators, allows for better quality control, improved safety, and cost efficiency.

Step 3: Installation

The final step is the installation of the fabricated skids at your location. Our strategic approach minimizes field welds and elevated work, resulting in a safer construction process. This method has been praised for its efficiency, coordination, and the speed it delivers.

Our pre-selected contractors play a crucial role in the installation process. All tie-ins are planned in advance to ensure a smooth integration of the skid into your plant. Our team of engineers oversees the entire process, ensuring that the skid is integrated into your plant as per the design intent.

The Benefits of Our “Skid 1-2-3” Approach

Our “Skid 1-2-3” approach offers several advantages:

    • Flexibility and Scalability: Our modular process skids offer unparalleled flexibility and scalability compared to the traditional onsite stick build approach. This allows us to meet challenging production and project requirements with ease.
    • Cost and Time Efficiency: Our skid designs result in reduced total installed costs and a shorter project schedule. This approach improves construction safety, ensuring a smooth and secure process from start to finish.
    • Versatility: Modularization can be applied to a range of applications from a simple portable process unit to multiple, large-scale complex process systems, demonstrating the versatility of our approach.
    • Parallel Construction: With modularization, parallel construction of the facility and process equipment is possible. This is especially beneficial in larger facility builds or upgrades, allowing for a more streamlined and efficient construction process.
    • Quality and Safety: Skid fabrication in a controlled shop environment results in better construction quality and improved safety compared to field fabrication. It also enables us to perform Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) offsite, ensuring that our products meet your requirements before they reach you.
