Skid Systems Fabrication & Assembly

Since our inception in 1971, Rodem has helped clients realize the benefits of prefabricated, modular assemblies and manufacturing components for the sanitary processing industry. Building these skidded systems in our fabrication shop minimizes facility and production disruption. Proper design and sanitary skid system installation for food, beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical, and other processors:

  • Ensures quality control and contamination risks with fabrication in a controlled environment
  • Streamlines expansion options
  • Minimizes downtime needed for tie-ins
  • Helps control budget and construction timelines



Rodem takes a strategic, collaborative approach to your skid system engineering, construction, and installation. We strategically design your skidded system   and carefully select each piece of equipment, piping, framing, instrumentation, and any additional component you may need.  We integrate with upstream and downstream processes to maximize your plant’s available space and optimize existing processes. With fabrication and assembly accomplished at Rodem s, we can efficiently integrate the entire sanitary skidded system  into your facility drastically reducing set-up, testing, and start-up time and expense.

Sanitary Skid Systems for Every Need

We know that as manufacturers of the products that feed and heal America  you cannot compromise on quality and safety. At the same time, we understand the importance of  controlling  costs wherever possible. Modular skid fabrication meets the demand for  both. As a leading process skid manufacturer, Rodem delivers competitive advantages including:

  • Quality to meet even the most stringent processing requirements
  • Minimal plant disruption and rapid integration
  • Optimized space utilization of plant floor for ease of ownership

Rodem’s skid system engineering, manufacturing, and installation capabilities can be utilized for a wide variety of sanitary processes.

Steam in place skid systems, or SIP are excellent options for food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries. The SIP process involves circulating steam through process equipment and pipelines to remove any residual contaminants, ensuring that the equipment and piping are clean and sterile. A Steam-In-Place skid system is a compact, self-contained unit that is designed for easy installation and operation.

Mixing and blending skids are excellent turnkey options for food, beverage and other high purity processors. These compact, easy to install skidded systems offer a variety of solutions including continuous blending, high shear mixing, powder/liquid blending or emulsifying.

Filtration and separation skids provide an efficient and cost-effective solution for sanitary industries that require filtration and separation processes, as they are easy to install, operate, and maintain, and can be customized to meet specific requirements. The system is usually mounted on a skid, which provides a solid base for easy transportation and installation.

Other Rodem skid offerings include modular skid systems designed for:

  • Ozone
  • Isotonic
  • Aseptic processing
  • Hot fill skids

Rodem becomes an extension of your in-house team and engineers to evaluate your resources and constraints and determine where a skid system assembly makes sense. With industry-leading technology, skillsets, and facilities, Rodem develops skid systems to your precise requirements. You can rest assured that the skid system we create for your facility will be installation ready. We won’t leave until we’re satisfied that the module meets your process and workflow needs, the system has been fully tested, and your operators and inspectors are comfortable using it.

Contact Rodem for a consultation about the advantages of our skid system engineering and manufacturing services when you face any of these challenges:

  • Expedited projects or tight budgets – Rodem’s off-site construction helps control quality and cost. Dedicated facilities and the right tools keep labor costs low and increases construction and testing
  • Spatial Constraints – Rodem’s equipment skid engineering can fit critical components in tight spaces, design them to fit your production flow, and parallel production lines.
  • Expansion Limitations –Modular options are viable options for scaling up manufacturing capacity without retrofitting entire lines or incurring the cost of expanded infrastructure.
  • Flexibility Requirements – New materials, ingredients, regulatory requirements, and customer tastes put a premium on manufacturing flexibility. With modularized, skid-mounted process equipment, you can respond quickly to dynamic market forces.
