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. When connected to the tanker for loading, it actively monitors the earth resistance through the truck along with the high level sensors in each tanker compartment, providing the first line of safety for our skid loading systems.
Thermal Pressure Relief System
The thermal pressure relief valves are connected into the skid at pre-defined points to prevent any 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 and 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 for use in such locations. 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.
