PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR LOAD WHEEL
Load wheels often have to operate in tough conditions which can shorten their life span, but there are some things you can do to extend the life of your load wheels, reduce downtime, and ensure the safety and efficiency of your material handling operations.
Some of the most common factors that can effect the life span of your wheel include:
Warehouse floors can become cracked and uneven over time. Even dirty floors with stray debris which can get lodged between load wheels, or their bearings, can cause long-term damage and shorten the life of your load wheel.
Wheels with a larger diameter typically have a higher load capacity than smaller wheels. Also, wheels with a larger diameter turn slower than smaller wheels so the compression cycle is reduced, lengthening the life span on the wheel.
Select a load wheel using the appropriate load capacity for your application will help extend the life of your wheels and prevent compression damage. The load rating of a wheel should never be exceeded.
Continuous use can generate heat as the wheel rotates and compresses and expands whilst rolling. The constant expansion and contraction when the load wheel comes into contact with the floor can build heat, which can result in cracks between the tread compound and bond with the wheel hub. Compounds with higher shore hardness are suited to continuous use, as there is less expansion and contraction reducing heat levels, but the downside is a harder ride.
The quality and size of a wheel bearing significantly impact a wheel's performance. We stock wheels with diverse bearing options, ensuring optimal function. Moreover, we can source specialized bearings for any application, guaranteeing the best performance and durability.
Some load wheels might require lubrication to reduce friction and wear. Consult the manufacturer's guidelines for recommended lubrication practices. Be cautious not to over-lubricate, as excess grease can attract dirt and cause problems.
Implement a regular maintenance schedule that includes cleaning, inspection, and any necessary lubrication. Document maintenance activities to track the condition and performance of your load wheels.
