Whether you’re moving heavy equipment, packages or waste, heavy duty caster wheels are critical hardware for your industrial applications. These casters are available in a wide range of styles and materials and are built to support loads from 450 pounds to 5000 pounds.
Where should caster wheels be placed?
When it comes to heavy duty wheels, there are many factors to consider. First, you need to decide what type of application you’ll be using the caster for. It’s best to look at the maximum load capacity of each caster you’re considering.
You’ll also need to consider how hard the tread is. Wheels with a harder tread have lower rolling resistance and better impact strength. They are also better for high-impact applications. The tread also helps to protect the caster from damage.
It’s important to choose a caster wheel with a tread that’s compatible with the floor you’re working on. This helps to prevent damage to your hardware and floor. It also helps to absorb shocks and reduce noise.
You can choose between glass filled nylon wheels, hard rubber wheels, and solid elastomer wheels. Glass filled nylon wheels can operate in a wide range of temperatures, including extremely cold (+45deg F) and high heat (+250deg F). They’re also able to work in oily and greasy environments. They can also operate in a wide range of floor types, including wet and slippery floors.
Hard rubber wheels are easy to start and operate, have a high load capacity and are durable. They also won’t flatten under heavy loads. They’re also simple to repair. They’re also resistant to most chemicals.
