CASTORS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS
High temperature castors are designed to withstand extreme heat and operate in environments where standard castors may fail. TEP Technica supplies three main types of bakery and oven castor.
We supply a very high quality heat resistant castor with a soft rubber tread directly bonded to a heat stabilised rim. The rim is made from a shatter resistant thermoplastic. We also supply this wheel with only the heat resistant material as both the tread and hub. This is a harder wearing material with a higher load capacity than the rubber version. Our wheels are resistant to cold and heat and maintain its operating performance within a range of -40°C to +280°C. Our bakery wheels come complete with a plain bore and INOX bush.
KEY BENEFITS OF HIGH TEMPERATURE CASTORS
High temperature castors are typically made from materials that can withstand high temperatures without warping or degrading, such as stainless steel or high-temperature thermoplastics.
Some of the key benefits of using twin wheel castors include:
Twin wheel castors provide better manoeuvrability than single-wheel castors, making them ideal for navigating tight spaces or crowded areas.
Increased load-bearing capacity:
Twin wheel castors are designed to distribute weight evenly across two wheels, allowing them to carry heavier loads than single-wheel castors.
The two-wheel design of twin wheel castors provides greater stability, reducing the risk of tipping or wobbling.
Reduced floor damage:
Twin wheel castors are less likely to damage floors than single-wheel castors, as the weight is spread across two wheels instead of one.
Smooth and quiet operation:
The use of two wheels in twin wheel castors results in a smoother and quieter operation, making them ideal for environments where noise levels need to be kept low..
Compatibility with various surfaces:
Twin wheel castors are suitable for use on a wide range of surfaces, including, concrete, vinyl, hardwood, and tile.
HIGH TEMPERATURE CASTOR APPLICATIONS
When selecting high temperature castors, it is essential to consider the specific application requirements, such as the operating temperature range, load capacity, and floor surface. It is also essential to choose the right wheel material, as different materials have different properties and can withstand different temperatures. High temperature castors are ideal for applications that involve extreme heat, such as:
High temperature castors are commonly used in foundries.
High temperature castors are used in steel mills to transport heavy loads of molten steel or other hot materials.
High temperature castors are used in glass factories to transport glass sheets and other hot glass materials.
High temperature castors are used in commercial bakeries where ovens and other baking equipment generate high temperatures.
High temperature castors are used in industrial ovens, such as those used in the automotive industry for powder coating and paint drying.
High temperature castors are used in incinerators to transport waste materials at high temperatures.
High temperature castors are used in ceramic manufacturing plants to transport ceramic products at high temperatures.
