Mixing Skid Systems

What are Mixing Skid Systems?

Mixing skid systems are integrated systems that incorporate all necessary components for mixing operations, mounted on a single, transportable frame. These systems are designed for ease of installation (DFM*) and operation, providing a compact and efficient solution for mixing applications in industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, chemicals, and more.

Components of a Mixing Skid System

A typical mixing skid system consists of:
Mixing Vessel: The core component where the actual mixing takes place, designed to handle a variety of materials and processes, ensuring thorough and consistent mixing. Our stainless-steel mixing vessels can also be designed to maintain the temperature of the product by implementing a “jacket system”.
Agitators and Mixers: Essential for promoting uniform mixing within the vessel. Our agitators and mixers are selected based on the specific requirements of your process, whether it’s high shear mixing, gentle blending, or something in between.
Pumps: Depending on the application, our systems can include centrifugal, twin-screw, progressive cavity, or lobe pumps, chosen for their suitability in handling different viscosities, flow rates, and pressure requirements.
Instrumentation and Controls: Advanced control systems for monitoring and adjusting parameters such as temperature, pressure, and mixing speed, ensuring optimal performance.
Piping and Valves: Efficient and hygienic piping systems, complete with valves for controlling flow and ensuring safety.

Key Benefits of Our Mixing Vessels

*DFM – Design for manufacture

Garlic Butter Mixing Skid

This system was supplied to our clients in the food industry. The butter pumping system is meticulously designed, for the the mobile platform to the bespoke jacketed tank with a custom flange to suit the pump inlet. The ellipsoidal tank inlet is crafted to prevent butter from solidifying, which can cause bridging problems and cavitation.

In operation, butter is deposited into the vessel and the system is managed via a PLC sequence, allowing the pump to switch between production mode and CIP (cleaning in place). Operators can easily monitor the product temperature through the display located on the control panel. The jacketed tank , equipped with a temperature control unit housed in an enclosed cabinet , maintains the product at the desired temperature.

For added practicality, a custom pump guard was created to prevent splashes, and a push handle was included for ease of use.
