Edwards Fabrication was commissioned by a customer in the gas and oil exploration industry to complete the custom fabrication of a mild steel mud shaker skid. This was a sizable project with extremely critical specifications to uphold. 572 grade 50 mild steel was precision cut using torches, then fit and welded using advanced welding machinery and our overhead hoist. A tight tolerance of ± 1/16" was held throughout. The completed skid was finished with a protective paint coating. Comprehensive testing and inspections were implemented, including dimensional tests, weld inspections, and verification of crucial design parameters such as the elevation of all cross members, and flushness at the top of the skid.

Three 45' long by 8' wide skids were fabricated and shipped to the customer in Texas after a 5 day turnaround time. Customer expectations were exceeded, and work upheld stringent industry standards including FCAW AWS D1.1 welding code. Edwards Fabrication is an experienced manufacturer of onshore and offshore platform accessories and other custom metal fabrications, meeting the high accuracy and quality demands of customers in a range of industries.
