Plant and Facility Supplies

Plant and facility supplies are parts and materials used in various applications within the industry structure. These products serve as supplemental parts and pieces that enable the larger equipment and machinery to function at optimum levels, but are not used as the primary manufacturing or processing equipment. Different types of manufacturing supplies are more commonly seen in different structures, as they can be fairly industry or process specific. For example, warehouse supplies are likely to be material handling related products such as 55 gallon drums, plastic pallets or storage racks, whereas plant supplies are more likely to be process or manufacturing related products such as heating elements, centrifugal pumps and various power supplies.

Although many of these products are often thought of as solely industrial plant supplies or industrial warehouse supplies, they are also commonly used in the petrochemical, automotive, wastewater, aerospace, pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries.

55 Gallon Drums

Liquid chemicals can be safely and efficiently stored and transported in steel or plastic drums, while fiber drums are perfect for containing powdered or granular materials. The food processing, pharmaceutical, hazardous waste, petroleum, and chemical processing industries all use 55 gallon drums extensively.

Plastic Pallets

Plastic Pallets  TMF Corporation Plastic pallets, or plastic skids, are plastic platforms used for storing, organizing, and transporting products. Though skids were commonly made of wood, plastic pallets have become more popular recently.

Plastic is more durable and typically demonstrates a higher strength-to-weight ratio, so plastic pallets can be reused longer and can support greater loads than wooden skids. In factories and warehouses, forklifts, hi-lows, and other jacks are used to quickly transport products on plastic pallets which can then be stored efficiently in large stacks.

Power Cords

Power Cords  Kord KingPower cords are an essential part of any electrical system as they allow electric current to flow from power source to electrical device.

Electric current flows along a highly conductive wire, generally made of copper, which is surrounded by an insulating material, and the whole system is then coated with a protective outer jacket.

When deciding on a power cord, it is important to consider factors like the amount of power needed, duration of use, and the location of the equipment or device being powered. These factors may require different cord lengths, wire diameters, jacket materials, and many other features in order to operate equipment safely and efficiently.

Double Braided Polypropylene Rope  Ropes R Us, Inc.Ropes are woven or twisted cordage varieties that have been used as hauling, suspension, watercraft mooring line and in many other capacities since before recorded history.

Ropes are composed of fibers that are twisted together.

Those twisted fibers are then twisted together to make strands, which are then twisted or braided together to create rope. The direction that the fibers are twisted is often opposite of the direction in which the strands are twisted in order to cause internal friction, which reinforces the rope's strength.

Stainless Steel Tanks

Stainless Steel Tanks  Mixer DirectStainless steel tanks are thin-walled constructions manufactured through a rolling process or welding. Although stainless steel is strong, it is vulnerable to buckling when the material is thin. Stainless steel tanks are most susceptible to damage during construction, transportation and installation.

The contents of full stainless steel tanks actually aid its stability. The shape of the tank is dependent on its diameter or height and the efficient use of material. Stainless steel tank manufacturers can make the ends of their products flat or in the shape of a dome or cone. In determining the size that a tank needs to be, consider how much extra volume should be included to cover for future process needs, such as thermal expansion or foaming, and also filling control, especially in the applications that require high speed pumping.
