Three Important Considerations To Keep In Mind When Installing Pump Skids To Poured Foundations
Skid-mounted pumps are subjected to mechanical stress induced by vibration. If the vibration isn't kept contained, then these forces can cause damage to the pump, its powerplant and power transmission equipment. On a properly-secured skid, vibration is transferred through the skid and into the ground, thus dampening its effects. That is why more powerful pump skids should be installed on a more permanent foundation; otherwise, any cost savings hoped to be gained by avoiding a grounded installation will be offset by increased pump maintenance and repair expenses.
