Design Capabilities

Process Design – The Mott engineering team has the capability to perform all process design, vessel design, generate PFDs and P&IDs, and specify valves, instruments, and other supporting critical equipment for filtration skids. Our comprehensive approach ensures that each filtration skid is optimized for specific process requirements, offering seamless integration and superior performance.

Design Modeling – Mott can perform detailed 3D modeling of filtration skids and sub-components, often using this integrated 3D model as a training tool for customer maintenance personnel. This detailed visualization aids in the understanding of system operation and maintenance procedures.

Piping and Structural Analyses – Mott can provide all required piping, pipe support, and structural qualification calculations for filtration skids based on our own internal standards, customer requirements, or internationally recognized codes and standards. This ensures that our filtration skids meet the highest levels of safety and reliability.

Detailed Fabrication Drawings – The Mott team can generate all required piping isometrics, pipe spool drawings, and required structural detail drawings to be used to fabricate the filtration skid and critical components. These comprehensive drawings ensure accuracy and efficiency during the fabrication process.

Relevant Services

Filter Feasibility Testing – Want a recommendation on the correct filter media, alloy, and backwash frequency for your filtration skid process? Coordinate with a Mott representative to send a sample of your feedstock to our lab to determine the correct filtration design for your process.

Front End Engineering Design (FEED) Packages – Prior to beginning fabrication, Mott can perform FEED phase work consisting of necessary process and structural designs of the filtration skid system. This work also includes identifying the total valve and instrument count and developing the functional specification of the filtration skid. A FEED phase ensures an accurate final cost estimate and project schedule, generally culminating with an onsite detailed design review.

Programming and Implementation – Mott filtration skids are fully automated, hands-off equipment. We can provide detailed programming and the implementation of that programming into Mott supplied or customer-supplied hardware. Mott’s filtration skids are flexible such that programming can be either a local PLC to control just the filtration skid or can be integrated directly into the plant DCS system to be controlled and monitored from the comfort of a control room.

On-Site Field Services – Mott’s services don’t stop at design work. Our Field Engineering team will be at your site for commissioning, startup, and post-startup support to ensure the successful operation of the filtration skid system.

Post-Install Data Analysis/Preventative Maintenance – The Mott team can analyze filter performance data trends to confirm successful operation of the filtration skid, recommend operational changes based on feedstock or plant changes, and in many cases recommend maintenance or offline filter element cleaning schedules.
