In distribution system firewater is sent to deluge/skids: Inlet Manifolds, Oil Export Pumps, Oil Booster Pumps, FWKO Drums & Heater Treaters, Compressors Train 1, Settling Tank A, Oil Buffer Tank A, each unit isolated by butterfly valve....... I would like to know if instead of "deluge/skids" it should read "deluge skid" without the slash. Thank you for your help!!!

DELUGE SKIDS. (You're right, yes , without the slash)
Explanation:
I think it SHOULD be written without the slash.
If we consider the meanings of deluge, it is clear that the slash is an error there.

I found this for you:
del路uge [d茅llyooj ] noun (plural del路ug路es)

1. sudden heavy downpour: a sudden heavy downpour of rain or torrent of water

2. vast quantity: an overwhelming amount of something

transitive verb (past del路uged, past participle del路uged, present participle del路ug路ing, 3rd person present singular del路ug路es)

1. overwhelm with something: to inundate somebody suddenly with a large amount of something

2. overwhelm with water: to flood or soak somebody or something with heavy rain or a sudden torrent of water


[15th century. From Old French, from, ultimately, Latin diluere "to wash away" (source of English dilute), from lavare "to wash" (see lavatory ).]



Encarta庐 World English Dictionary

From this, it seems clear that it should be deluge skids.

Regards and good luck! :)
