Wondering what is that metal channel used to mount piping & components and where can I get it? I see these neat install pics with boiler piping, pumps and component mounted to back wall using channel steel and mounts.

Pick,

See if this is what you're talking about.
They seem to have everything. At least you'll have an idea.

Quite a few manufacturers of the product...

Strut channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The one I'm most familiar with is " Unistrut " but they're all basically the same.

Unistrut U.S.

Versabar, unistrut. They also have galvanized and copper clamps as well as cushion clamps which is what you want for mounting copper.

Yessir... don't use the cushions and with the expansion and contraction eventually the steel will 'saw' right through the copper.
