Instrument air skid equipment packages are crucial to many industrial and commercial facilities. By investing in high-quality skid equipment, businesses are better positioned to perform routine tasks, manage operations, and keep costs low.

Understanding the basics of instrument air skid equipment packages can help business owners enhance their machinery and improve their operations.

In this blog, we explain what an air compressor skid is, how it can benefit businesses, and how Unimac partners with industry-leading brands to build custom configurations that meet your company’s needs.

What is an Instrument Air Compressor Skid?

An air compressor skid is a self-contained unit that houses the necessary components to produce or process compressed air.

This unit provides quality air to power pneumatic tools and equipment in various applications. Compressed air skid equipment options include an air compressor, air receiver, and any necessary filtration, drying, or cooling accessories. Customizations, including motor size, performance, and controls, are determined by each business’s output requirements. The skid itself can be mounted on a trailer or stationary unit, making it easy to move around as needed.

Benefits of Instrument Air Skid Equipment Packages

Investing in an instrument air skid package can provide businesses with numerous benefits, including:

  1. Improved Efficiency: By having a dedicated air compressor skid, your business can ensure consistent and reliable compressed air. Downtime caused by air quality issues or equipment failure can be drastically reduced.
  2. Cost Savings: Utilizing a dedicated air compressor skid can also result in cost savings. By having an optimized system, you can reduce energy costs, maintenance needs, and waste from equipment failure.
  3. Space-saving: An instrument air skid is a compact and self-contained package that can occupy a small footprint. It can help businesses optimize their space utilization.
  4. Customization: Businesses have unique needs, and an air compressor skid can be tailored to meet those needs. Specific types and amount of equipment needed, operating controls, and performance needs can all be configured to meet your goals. Pre-engineered skids are also available for your convenience.
