SKEANS custom C-Can Compressor Room

Does your organization require Compressed Air, or Drier Air but you have no facility space? Have you mobile applications where you need Compressed Air produced and stored at various job site locations? Check out what SKEANS can do to design a custom application of Compressor, Dryer, Air Receiver and filtration - either/or or all; inside a used Shipping Container (aka C-Can)! So long as the equipment will fit inside, we can design a system that will produce the right CFM and quality of air required. C-Can's are inexpensive, water tight and can be sourced in 8' widths by 10', 20' or even 40' lengths. They can be painted to an exterior colour of your choice, or left their original colour, red, brown, green, or we are often able to find white. These units can be insulated to a specified R value, no not, sub floored, or not, ventilatation and custom man doors can be cut in. Exterior connection to service the air to/from your required service area are fully sealed and water tight and we can provide up to 250' of hose length. C-Cans can be dry mounted on asphalt, stacked, or even placed directly on dirt, so long as the area is reasonably level.

When you don't have the facility room, or you need to be mobile; contact SKEANS Compressor Sales Division for more information on custom designed Compressor Rooms built inside used shipping containers

SKEANS 50th Anniversary Celebration

April 28, 2018 marked a significant milestone for our team at SKEANS. We are celebrating 50 years in business and to mark the occasion our extended Skeans family came together to celebrate on June 9th! Our employees and their partners across all branches from Coquitlam to Winnipeg connected, shared Skeans experiences from the early years, and toasted the bright future ahead. John Skeans Sr. was looking down on us with pride and joy, as Skeans brothers Tim, Tony and Chris with their wives and third generation Skeans family, Chad Skeans and Pam Skeans Loewen participated in honouring where we’ve come from and where we’re headed.

We enjoyed a competitive 90 person bocce and croquet tournament on the lawn of Rocky Point Park in Port Moody, BC. We overlooked a working arm of Burrard Inlet and the Coastal mountains just over the hill from our Coquitlam head office. We then continued our festivities at the Old Mill Boathouse across the street for drinks, dinner, great speeches and dancing the night away.

Thank you to all our employees, their families, our customers, our suppliers and business partnerships for all your contributions to a successful family owned and operated company since April 28, 1968.

We strive to prosper with our committed team, providing compressed air and automation solutions for Industry by offering exceptional customer service and a systems approach.

MAC Liquid Valve technology

The MAC Liquid Bullet Valve® (LBV) is the latest design innovation from MAC. With fast response times, reliable shifting forces and repeatable results – due to its patented balanced design – the MAC LBV is ideal for applications that demand reliable, low-leak performance. The LBV performs with both gas and liquid, and is engineered to perform at the highest level throughout its life. The MAC LBV employs D-Flex™ technology to provide an exceptionally tight seal; preventing leakage and saving you product and money. D-Flex™ technology also allows the LBV to last longer and perform stronger in the toughest applications. With fewer wear points than traditional valve technology the LBV is designed to last.
