Wheel - Grey Rubber - 200kg - 150 x 34mm - Ball Bearing
- FA QTQ150G
Grey Rubber Wheels are shock absorbing and minimise vibration thus prolonging equipment life and protecting the load. They can roll over small objects and roll easily on rough floors. As they are non-marking Grey Rubber Wheels help protect costly floor surfaces.
Grey Rubber Wheel Specifications:
- Capacity per Wheel kg: 200
- Diameter x Width mm: 150 x 34
- Hub Width x Bore mm/inch: 40 x 8
- Bearing: Ball Bearing *
* Ball Bearings are used in applications where heat can build up due to friction caused by constant movement and/or higher speeds, as the high-tolerance and hardened steel used in the sealed and greased bearings reduces heat build-up that can cause weakening of the wheel. Ball bearings offer the lowest-friction and therefore the lowest push-effort.
Grey Rubber Wheel Features:
- Shock absorbing
- Minimise vibration
Some tyre selection factors:
The harder the tyre, the less out-of-round the tyre will be under load, and the smaller the resulting force required to start the wheel from rest on smooth floors. Hard wheels have high load bearing capacity and reduce push effort on carpet
and soft surfaces but are very noisy on tiles and other hard surfaces and can also leave indentations on wooden floors.
The greater the resilience (bounciness/spring) of the tyre, the lower the sustained push effort required to pass over multiple obstacles (rough ground). That’s why wheelbarrows and other applications that involve rough ground use
pneumatic or rubber tyres.
Domed tyres require less force to swivel a wheel. Flat profiles spread load and prevent damage to floors at high load ratings.
Rubber tyres such as grey or hi-res blue rubber may not be suitable for dirty floors or areas near tool rooms, as particles such as swarf or pebbles can get stuck in the tyres (which may then cause damage to floors). A nylon or
polyurethane tyre material would be suitable due to its harder surface which resists particle embedment.
