How do you attach heavy duty casters?
Heavy duty caster wheels can be made from a variety of materials. There are 6 main materials that are used to make these wheels. Each of these materials offers different benefits. For instance, aluminum wheels are best suited to exterior applications. Likewise, caster wheels made of nylon are great for corrosive and wet environments. They are also very quiet.
The material and diameter of the casters play an important role in determining the weight capacity of the wheels. The heavier the material, the higher the load capacity. Casters with large diameters help distribute the weights more evenly and roll better than those with smaller diameters. You should choose caster wheels rated for more weight than you are likely to use. Some materials, such as polyurethane, aluminum core, and cast iron, can handle up to 1500lbs per caster. Other materials, like rubber and plastic, can handle much lighter loads.
Hard rubber wheels are also available. Unlike soft rubber wheels, these caster wheels are durable and don’t flatten under heavy loads. They are also easy to start and maintain. They are also long-lasting and resistant to most chemicals, oils, and solvents. They are also suited for a wide range of applications.
