Castor suits light industrial equipment

The polyurethane tyred RE.FF range of castors from Elesa has technopolymer wheels, suitable for loads of up to 750kg and for use on floors of tile, asphalt, cement/resin or similar.

They are likely to suit industrial trolleys or transfer equipment of many types.

The castor features a double ball race chassis in zinc plated steel or in stainless steel for arduous environments and minimal turning resistance – an important factor in initial alignment when moving from rest. Traditional swivel and fixed chassis are complemented by total lock braking versions which operate to prevent wheel turning as well as castor rotation. Wheel sizes are available from 80mm to 150mm dia with total height of 107 to 194mm.

Chemical resistance is good in relation to common industrial chemicals such as alcohols, glycols, weak organic and mineral acids, as well as water and saturated vapour, so ensuring efficient use and castor longevity in temperatures from -20°C to +80°C. Check the Elesa (UK) website for full details.
