Last week, we wrapped up the completion of three fabricated basket strainers.  The images you see here show our team performing the hydrotesting phase, which was done on Monday and Tuesday.

Following the completion of this test, the units were painted and prepared for shipment. The third image is of the final product en route to the client. Below is a timeline from start to finish of the progress of this project:

The images on the left show the fabricated basket strainers being loaded and shipped to the project site on November 24th.


The project was completed within 10 weeks from its release for manufacturing and more importantly met our client’s delivery requirement.


Congratulations to everyone at IFC for a job well done and great effort on this project!
