Re: Stainless Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Perhaps you should consider not welding to the base SS plate but create a separate attachment to retain and clamp the saddle in place.  This approach is used often with electrical equipment that needs to be secured to a concrete housekeeping pad.  It the loads are not too high this might be a simpler approach.

The tank is horizontal and is made of stainless steel with the two saddles also being stainless steel but without holes for anchor bolts. So, I will need to weld on base plates to the bottom of the saddles.
