Engineering & Manufacturing

Time Lapse of a Large Scale Modular Integrated Process System

At TKMS, Modular is our Product, and Custom is our Standard.

What makes TKMS Different

In order to provide modular process systems for the Biopharm Industry, it requires a unique set of abilities and knowledge. These skillsets can only be attained by having extensive and prolonged years of Process Engineering, Design, & Fabrication Experience. Having these distinctive capabilities is what separates TKMS from it's competition.


Our in-house process know-how and fabrication craftsmanship, allows us to provide "The Best Way To Design & Build Modular Systems" for our clients.


  • We have the expertise for exacting the design and perform all the required disciplines In-House.

  • We have the in-house experience to communicate with clients during the design and build phases.

  • We have the skills to develop execution plans and to procure the required materials for fabrication of the modules

  • We deliver in a timely manner and have the experience to manage shipments anywhere globally .

  • We are responsible for the entire process and before we ship . . . . . .  We Test.


In the end, it all works with ease, because at TKMS, Modular is our Product and Custom is our Standard.


Engineering & Design

Our in-house design team consists of the following:

  • Mechanical and Structural Design

  • Process Engineering - Preliminary  to Detail

  • Full BOM including Tag Lists and component Specs

  • 3D modeling of systems including Suite Layouts

  • Full Electrical design including I&E

  • Experienced Project Management

  • Full Documentation to support Validation

  • 3D planning for Setting of Systems and Equipment



The TKMS factory is configured in such a way to separate frame and support structure fabrication from high purity piping as well as the final assembly of each modular system.


A separate warehouse provides for clean material storage and allows for detailed QA inspection, tagging, and "kitting" of all components prior to arrival on our factory floor. Kits are prepared and matched to spool drawings thereby allowing us to pre-fab much of the pipework prior to items such as pumps, tanks, and instruments are received. 

This approach to fabrication allows us to assemble systems quickly and optimize the timeline to manufacture. 

In our factory we perform the following:

  • In -house inspection for material receiving

  • Frame and platform fabrication

  • Pipe Spooling using Orbital Automatic welding

  • Material Surface finishes

  • Boroscope Inspection and logging of process welds

  • X-Ray inspection when required

  • Polishing and Final finishing to meet Industry standards

  • Cleaning & Passivation of Systems and Equipment

  • Pressure Testing to comply with TSSA & ASME

Testing and Delivery

Testing of each modular system is a key step in our manufacturing process and it is a key requirement of our Quality Program.


Our factory is outfitted with the following testing services:

  • Utility bay with Raw & Clean steam,

  • Filtered & Dried Compressed Air,

  • Two Tank CIP / Passivation System,

  • DI Water distribution system with 15,000L storage vessel, and a central utility distribution loop  with  Point of Use drops throughout the Production and FAT areas

  • 400 AMP @ 600 V with Transformers for 208 & 460 Volt testing to meet global electrical requirements

  • Drive-in bay for loading and shipping large modular sections


Our Client FAT Rooms are within close proximity of the factory floor for access and inspection of their systems while they are onsite and prior to shipment of their systems. We provide full capabilities for running automation and allow for the simulation of client operating conditions prior to shipment.

Each visitor, whether a client or a supplier, is issued a security pass for restricting access to specific areas of our building and guaranteeing complete security, technical confidentiality, and private workspaces. 

When our systems are completed testing and signed off by our clients, we prepare for shipment by including proper crating, ensure equipment is properly protected from varying weather conditions during shipment as well as adequate loading and lifting conditions when it is received by our clients. We have experience with Ground, Sea, and Air shipments which allows TKMS to deliver modules to any place worldwide. ​
