Description

IMPORTANT You must specify the temperature and type of application when ordering High Temperature castors to ensure that the appropriate wheel type is selected. This can be done in the “Order Instructions/Comments” section of the Checkout and we will contact you to verify your selection.

As temperatures increase wheels become weaker and this lowers the load capacity. In static (non-moving) applications with sustained high temperatures over long periods of time the material will begin to deteriorate, which shortens the working life of the wheel. ‘Reflex Equip’ supply three different wheel types designed specifically for use in high temperature environments. These specialised wheels use standard lithium complex grease (STABUTHERM® GH 461) which has excellent water resistance, bearing retention and long life.

With a load rating of 100kg @ 200° Celsius per castor, this High Temperature Cast Iron wheel is the best choice for Industrial based applications such as ‘paint curing’ ovens and also for use in sustained high temperature environments. It can withstand extreme high temperatures as well as higher load capacities than all other wheel types. Cast Iron wheels do not have bearings. They have a plain bore fitted with an axle spacer that is lubricated with high temperature grease. This grease can be used up to 230°Celsius for long periods.

For temperatures that exceed 230°Celsius, more exotic grease is required and you will need to inform us of this at the time of placing your order.

WARNING: Cast Iron is heavy, noisy and may damage concrete floors and other floor surfaces.

High Temperature Cast Iron Wheel Specifications:

  • Capacity per Wheel kg: 100kg @ 200° Celsius
  • Diameter x Width mm: 75 x 28
  • Hub Width x Bore mm: 41 x 12

High Temperature Cast Iron Wheel Features:

  • Best choice for Industrial based applications
  • Higher load capacities
  • 200°Celsius to 400°Celsius

 

Some High Temperature Wheel Options:

1) Glass Filled Nylon - (150° Celsius to 210° Celsius)

The best choice for Hospitality based applications such as ‘food baking’ ovens. It can withstand sustained high temperatures and is gentle and quiet on most floor surfaces. Fibreglass reinforced nylon wheels are the preferred wheel for extended periods of up to 210° Celsius (assuming most of their life is spent outside the oven), and for short periods up to 230° Celsius.

2) Phenolic - 100° Celsius to 300° Celsius

Phenolic is more brittle than Glass Filled Nylon and it has a shorter life cycle but can go up to very high temperatures. Phenolic is a good choice for light duty Industrial applications with very high temperatures such as ovens used for curing paint. The load capacity decreases from 125kg at 100° Celsius to 40kg at 300° Celsius therefore it is very important to ensure that the load capacity of the trolley fits within the appropriate temperature and load capacity.

Phenolic wheels (with special inorganic fillers and PTFE bushes) are preferred for extended periods up to 280° Celsius assuming most of their life is spent outside the oven and for short periods up to 300°Celsius.

These have a thick cross section, but are more brittle than either nylon or ordinary grades of Phenolic.

WARNING: Phenolic wheels are not suitable for medium duty applications or applications where wheels are subjected to impact such as when a trolley is rolled down steps.

 3) Cast Iron - 200°Celsius to 400°Celsius

The best choice for Industrial based applications such as ‘paint curing’ ovens and also for use in sustained high temperature environments. It can withstand extreme high temperatures as well as higher load capacities than all other wheel types. Cast Iron wheels do not have bearings. They have a plain bore fitted with an axle spacer that is lubricated with high temperature grease. This grease can be used up to 230°Celsius for long periods.

For temperatures that exceed 230°Celsius, more exotic grease is required and you will need to inform us of this at the time of placing your order.

For sustained high temperature use, we offer a range of cast iron wheeled castors used with high temperature grease.

WARNING: Cast Iron is heavy, noisy and may damage concrete floors and other floor surfaces.
