General Purpose Skid-Mounted Packaged Equipment Specification

Abstract ↓

This Practice provides minimum requirements for mechanical design and manufacturing of skid-mounted packaged equipment. Skid-mounted units are self-contained, consisting of equipment, their auxiliary systems, interconnecting piping, electrical and instrument components, controls, and support structures, which are normally fabricated and skid-mounted in one or more sections. Skid-mounted packaged equipment may include a broad range of designs for process and utility applications, such as refrigeration units, vacuum pumps, chemical injection systems, and filter packages. This Practice is intended to address basic requirements that are common to most skid-mounted packages. Comment Purchaser shall ensure that specifications are invoked and provided for specific applications, which are equal to or exceed the scope of this Practice. Purchaser may also provide data sheets, P&IDs, process data, and any other supplemental specifications to define requirements for specific packaged equipment.

Reading Practices

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
