Why Prefabricated Pumping Systems Ease System Design

Connecting packaged systems to existing equipment is one of the primary advantages of prefabricated pump systems. Installing new equipment at a facility typically follows two methodologies.

  1. First, there is the stick-build approach, where each component is installed individually on the site and then connected once everything is built.
  2. Second, a packaged system could be used. In this approach, all components and connections are fabricated and assembled offsite on a frame or skid. Following assembly and testing, the entire package is shipped to the customer location, where it is integrated into the facility’s existing equipment hook-ups.

Choosing to use a prefabricated pumping system allows for faster project completion times because they allow for parallel fabrication at the facility site. Another significant advantage of a packaged system is the ability to manage the project through a single point of contact. It would otherwise be necessary to deal with several different manufacturers for each piece of equipment.

Finally, skid-mounted systems are, by nature, designed for a compact layout and on average, packaged systems have a smaller footprint than those assembled onsite. Their compact design lends itself to easier AND safer installation, too.

Pump’nFlo is a division of Heat Transfer Sales that builds modular skid-mounted hydronic systems consisting of multiple components delivered on a single skid. Since 1993, Pump’nFlo has built and shipped 900+ custom fabricated packages.

We lifted the Pump’nFlo skid shown above with a crate onto the truck, then placed the housing on top of it since this system will be outdoors.

This skid includes a ton of equipment, most notably three TACO pumps, a TACO expansion tank, a TACO air separator, and a Griswold Unimizer control valve.
