All baskets available in:

  • Titanium
  • Tantalum
  • Zirconium
  • Niobium
  • 316 Stainless Steel
  • Monel

Considerations for Basket Sizing:

  • Baskets should be 2″ to 4″ shorter than the longest piece of work.
  • Baskets should be 1″ above the solution level.
  • Hook length is measured from the top of anode bar to 1″ above the solution level.
  • Quantities for rectangular baskets should be three (3) 2.5″ x 6″ baskets for every two feet above the bar.

Sizing and Styles:

  • Rectangular Baskets – 2.5″ x 6″ – Standard Stock Lengths include 18″, 24″, 30″, 36″. Other lengths are built to order.
  • Round Baskets – 2.5″ Diameter x Length – Standard Stock Lengths include 18″, 24″, 30″, and 36″. Other lengths are built to order



















Amperage Rating Per Hook:

  • 25AMP = 1/8″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 3/8″ Square Bar Hook
  • 50AMP = 1/4″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 1/2″ Square Bar Hook
  • 75AMP = 3/8″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 5/8″ Square Bar Hook
  • 100AMP = 1/2″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 3/4″ Square Bar Hook


Normal Application:

  • Inverted “V” Lift Hooks
  • Inverted “U” Hooks
  • “T” Handle Lift Hooks
  • Reverse Lift Hooks for easier access in lifting baskets
  • Submergible Hooks

  • Heavier hooks for strength and current carrying capabilities
  • Ti Clad Copper Hooks for higher amperage rating
  • Thicker mesh material to minimize bulging of basket
  • Thicker side channel construction

  • Large Expanded: – .5″ SWD x 1-1/4″ LWD – 75% mesh open area
  • Mini-Expanded: – 3/16″ SWD x 1/2″ LWD – 65% mesh open area
  • Perforated: -.5″ Diameter on 11/16″ staggered centers – 50% Mesh Open Area
