Engineering Considerations

These two skids are engineered to meet the demanding requirements of chemical injection.  They are designed to be modular for ease of maintenance with intuitive controls for easy operation.

Chemical injection is a relatively easy process when you consider chemical actives, viscosities, compatibilities, treatment needs, desired results, materials and a number of other requirements that will allow or prevent success.   Our skids are built from the point-of-view of chemical and water treatment engineers who understand these requirements. We then work with our electrical engineers to describe how we want the skid to operate. This two-step process ensures a successful field solution not one that is well controlled but fails due to “chemistry” issues.


The modular design allows easy assembly and disassembly of the physical piping, valves, sensors, and other connections that are critical for periodic maintenance. All skids utilize threaded connections and full density Teflon tape. The specialized tape prevents chemical leaks under hand tight conditions further facilitating field maintenance.


Intuitive controls allow easy operation. Frequent changes in manufacturing and process environments demand operators and technicians continuously learn new equipment. This requirement can be overwhelming and lead to failures if not handled. We have seen over-complicated feed systems that prevent proper operation leading to chemical injection failure. We have found that simple on, off, auto control is ideal. Minimizing controls leads to successfully feeding chemicals and leads to great chemical treatment and process control. Less is more. This may seem simple but the greatest feed system in the world is worthless when chemicals don’t make it into the system.
