8"X 2" Blue Solid Polyurethane Wheel With Brake | Swivel Caster | 1,000 lbs Capacity
Caster HQ's Blue Solid Polyurethane Elastomer wheel offers high weight capacities and great resistance to chemicals and wash-down applications. Our Blue Solid Poly Wheels are great for Steam Clean and full Wash-down applications while providing great floorprotection and a quiet rolling operation. This wheel is great for clean rooms, labs, hospitals, and schools due to the non-marking high-quality polyurethane material. Optional precision ball bearings require less effort to start-up and maintain a rolling load; theyalso generate less friction heat and may prolong the life ofthe wheel. Works well in both indoor and outdoor environments;however solid polyurethane wheels may flat spot if they are left with a maximum load for long periods of time; if this is an issue look atusing aluminum, iron, or plastic core wheels.
Option Menu / Upgrades: We offer many upgrades to allow you to build the caster exactly how you want. Below you will find a list of options with detailed explanations of each which you can select from the right-hand side of this page if you decide on upgrading the caster to suit your needs.
Mounting Hardware: This is an optional upgrade - to save you time from having to source your own mounting hardware we stock and provide you with the option to buy the hardware from us. Each set of mounting hardware comes with Carriage Bolts as well as Slotted Drive Hex Steel Thread Cutting Screws and you will really only need to use one when mounting. We provide both options when you order this that way it will fit almost 99% of any equipment you decide to use. Please make sure the 1" length is long enough before selecting this option. The hardware also comes with matching flat washers and lock nuts and everything is Zinc plated to prevent rust and corrosion.
Bearing Options: Roller Bearing is the most popular wheel bearing in the industry; it's what comes standard on these wheels if you decide to leave the selection menu blank. Roller Bearings are fantastic for heavier loads as the weight is evenly balanced through the hub of the wheel. Easy to roll, easy to maintenance. These bearings will require periodic grease which can be applied through either our zerk axle that comes standard with your order or the grease fitting that is located in the wheel depending on the wheel type. We recommend greasing every 6 months for normal use and every month for heavy use if these are used around water.
Precision Bearings: These bearings reduce the friction of the wheels and are great for smooth and clean floors. These bearings are two-piece Q34 Sealed Precision Ball Bearings and allow the user to initiate the cart much easier as well as roll smoother and quieter and are completely maintenance-free and do not need to be greased.
Delrin Bearings: These are plastic bearings that are generally used in an all-stainless steel caster application combined with this solid polyurethane wheel. Many customers prefer Derrin bearings if the casters and wheels are exposed to frequent wash-down and wet applications.
Top Locking Brake: These are the most popular and affordable brakes for heavy-duty casters. The on and off lever is located on the side of the caster and when you engage the brake pedal there is a shoe that will engage over the top of the wheel to lock the wheel from spinning. Easy, affordable, simple.
Total Locking Brakes: The total lock brake is a huge upgrade to any swivel caster as it allows the user to engage the brake from the trailing end of the caster while you are rolling the cart or equipment. The total lock brake locks the swivel raceway from rotating and it locks the wheel at the same time all with the press of one lever. This will make any swivel caster completely stationary. A Very good upgrade!
