Chemical and Special Project Loading Skids

For our chemical and special project loading skids, we take our unrivalled knowledge gained through developing our petroleum loading systems and customise it to meet the specific needs of the customer.

Used when loading highly corrosive or volatile liquids, our chemical and special project loading skids are adaptable. So, we can also configure them for other liquid and beverage applications. We adapt them for situations where fluids are not naturally suited to standard loading processes.

Chemical and Special Project Loading Skids
Features and benefits

Our special application fuel loading systems use various types of metering technology. This ensures they suit the customers’ requirement and liquid compatibility most closely. Depending on the fluid being transferred, industries commonly use metering technologies such as mass flow meters (also known as Inertial or Coriolis flow meters), magnetic or mag flow meters, and turbine meters. Clients specify the chosen metering technology. Or we determine it based on the specific fluid being measured. If you don’t have a prescribed metering method, we can help. IFC Inflow can advise on the most accurate, appropriate, and effective method for your situation.

The technical details

Below you will find all the key details for our range of Chemical and Special Project Loading Skids. If you would like to discuss this in more detail, then please just get in touch.  Because, we are always happy to help and answer any queries you may have.


We build most of our tanker loading skids using standard carbon steel pipework. However, different fluids may require uprated materials. We use stainless steel pipework to withstand corrosive liquids, as well as carbon steel for higher pressures typically encountered in high-speed loading. Where the fluid is especially corrosive, a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) lining is often more suitable.


Our outstanding safety record over the last 30+ years comes from our dedication to system design. We always keep both the operator and the equipment safe. Tied to these considerations are the connections between the process skid and the tanker. While standard flanged, screwed, or cam and groove fittings are options, we also offer a range of dry disconnect fittings. Commonly used when transferring liquids that are hazardous to health or the environment, these fittings provide an entirely sealed process. Thereby maximising safety.

Temperature guidance

We can accommodate tight temperature requirement windows, maintaining designated temperatures from -100°C to +500°C. Therefore enabling the loading of materials such as bitumen without cooling and hardening. We can add advanced sensor and safety controls into the system. Systems such as static build-up monitoring, earth grounding verification, overfill prevention sensors, and positional sensors all help to keep workers safe.


We manufacture all our equipment to relevant European standards, such as ASME 31.1B for pipework. ATEX approval is also available where required by clients.

Case Study
The Chemical and Special Project Loading Skids in action

K9 Fuels recently built a brand new oil distribution depot and as part of the investment they wanted to store product on site, which would help them increase the high level of service they already provided delivering heating oil and commercial/agricultural fuel to their customers in Lincolnshire.
