Heavy-duty industrial steel shelving is made of thick 18-gauge steel. It is durable and versatile. Industrial steel shelves can take heavy loads and are generally resistant to corrosion. They are perfect for storing heavy materials like power tools, dies, castings and liquids. Industrial shelving made of 20-ga steel is more affordable and can take heavy loads. Industrial steel shelving is available in the open or closed variations. While open shelving is more accessible from all sides, closed shelving is better suited for stock that needs greater protection against falls.
Industrial strainers are used to remove solid debris from in-line fluid flow conditions. One common type of industrial strainer is a so-called basket type, which is physically disposed in a fluid line, which supplies raw water to a fluid apparatus, such as a fire main pipeline. However, basket type strainers require the basket and the contents thereof to be removed. Such removal requires several hours of cleaning and labor time. Just as significantly the fluid system employing the basket strainer is down. Such down time presents, of course, added significant commercial drawbacks.
