Stainless Steel Basket Types

We also offer a variety of finishing options for all of our wire baskets, such as electropolishing and passivation.

Mesh Stainless Steel Baskets

Stainless steel mesh baskets are useful in many types of workplaces. One of their most common uses is holding tools, parts, or workpieces while they are washed. Our mesh baskets keep smaller items safely contained during the washing process and prevent parts from damaging one another or the washing machine. Water and cleaning chemicals easily drain from the basket’s mesh body for thorough cleansing and simple cleanup.

Material Handling & Parts Washing Baskets

Material handling and parts washing baskets require rugged construction to withstand tasks such as cleaning, dipping, and moving parts within industrial settings. Our wire baskets for these applications are incredibly durable and are made to last.

Our material handling baskets work great with conveyors and have handles for easy handling and but have minimal impact on the amount of space they take up.

To clean this equipment thoroughly and safely, airline companies, aviation manufacturers, and parts distributors rely on our aviation blade and vane baskets in our in-stock product list. Aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) procedures keep turbine engines working properly and ensure safety. Cleaning aviation parts like blades and vanes is crucial to keeping aviation passengers and aircraft safe. These components are built to withstand environmental stresses.

Our ultrasonic cleaning baskets are ideal for ultrasonic cleaning, immersion cleaning, spray wash, solvent cleaning and penetrant cleaning.

Overhead conveyor baskets save valuable floor space and improve efficiency in manufacturing and distribution environments. We create these industry-standard products with versatility in mind. Our overhead conveyor baskets are designed for industrial environments and are available with multiple design features, including strut channels and lids.
