Our Loading Skids are the complete solution for bottom loading operations. Primarily used for oil and petroleum-based fuels such as diesel, kerosene, gas oil, and petrol. Our skids are custom-built with up to five loading arms, and loading speeds from 800 to 2500 litres per minute.
All of our skids come with a range of monitoring and control systems to ensure your operators’ safety. These include as standard:
High-Level Shut-Off and Earth Monitor
The Scully Intellitrol unit is recognised throughout the industry and is a common feature in large refineries and small distribution depots alike. This provides the first line of safety to our skid loading systems. When connected, it actively monitors the tanker’s earthing or grounding. While simultaneously monitoring the high-level sensors in each tanker compartment.
Thermal Pressure Relief System
Thermal pressure relief valves are connected into the skid at pre-defined points. These prevent the risk of a build-up of pressure within the system due to thermal expansion. Set at 7 bar, this system protects on-skid equipment as well as the operator.
Electrical Control Panel
Our skids come complete with a safe area electrical control panel as standard. The panel provides all control functions for the skid. It has a separate emergency stop button, along with a series of indicator lights to show the health of the skid.
We only fit electrical equipment that has been ATEX certified. All the on-skid electrical wiring is provided using steel wire armoured cables and industry-standard glanding installed to CompEx requirements by certified electrical technicians.
Frame and Pipework
The base of our skid is a heavy-duty mild steel galvanised frame that is resistant to corrosion. Designed to provide a small site footprint, it is strong enough to support all the equipment, including meters, pumps, and loading arms.
Optional weather shielding canopy and lighting can be added to protect both workers and equipment in adverse conditions. Pipework is heavy-duty carbon steel, flanged connections with full-welded joints. It is powder-coated for durability.
