How much weight must castors and wheels normally be able to carry?

Castors and wheels must be able to carry different amounts of weight. However, the exact requirements depend on your individual application. Some castors and wheels only need to be able to transport lightweight material such as cardboard boxes or drawers. Other castors and wheels need to be designed for heavy machinery, trucks or even ships. In general, however, castors and wheels used in industrial settings must be able to support weight loads ranging from several hundred kilograms to several tonnes with different speeds and duration of use. The exact specifications depend on the particular application and the customer's requirements.

How can castors and wheels be protected from wear?

There are a number of ways in which castors and wheels can be protected from wear and tear. For one thing, it is important to choose the right material. Next, choosing the right treads for your floor can make castors and wheels more resistant to wear and tear. In addition, regular maintenance procedures can contribute to prolonging the lifespan of castors and wheels. Also, it is best to pay attention to how much weight a castor can carry. Excessive loads can quickly wear out the castor and replacement of castors and wheels might cost valuable time and money.

How important is the resistance of castors and wheels to chemicals?

The resistance of castors and wheels to chemicals in general industry is essential, as many industrial applications use chemicals and aggressive substances. Castors and wheels that are not resistant to chemicals may be damaged or their performance may be compromised, which can lead to a decrease in productivity or even cause safety issues. Exposure of castors and wheels to chemicals that can decompose or weaken the materials can lead to premature wear and failure of castors and wheels. For this reason, castors and wheels in the industry frequently need to incorporate materials that are resistant to chemicals, such as stainless steel, polyurethane or rubber. Therefore, it is important that castors and wheels are selected for use in specific environments and applications to guarantee maximum resistance to chemicals and aggressive substances.
