Swivel caster wheels heavy duty are designed for heavy loads and are available in different types. Some of these casters are equipped with kingpins, which allow them to rotate easily. They also come with double row ball bearings and three-inch-wide wheels. They have a load capacity of up to two thousand pounds per caster. Some of these casters are available with brakes. They also feature double ball raceways, which provide smooth and consistent swivel action. They have long-lasting service lives and are ideal for industrial applications, portable workstations, and display equipment.
How do spring loaded castors work?
The Durometer of a wheel determines its rollability, which is influenced by several factors. These factors include the wheel’s durometer, the floor’s surface conditions, and the bearing size. Moreover, swivel casters are designed with secondary load bearings to balance the side thrust. In addition, a hardened steel tube called Spanner Bushing provides a smooth inner raceway for the wheel roller bearing. Besides providing smooth rollability, the Spanner Bushing strengthens the caster by allowing the leg to be tightened against the bushing.
Heavy duty swivel caster wheels are designed to carry heavier loads. They usually have thicker fork legs and a wider load-bearing swivel section. They are also designed to support heavy equipment that needs to be moved from one location to another. They can carry chemicals and sensitive equipment. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
