The swivel rigs described above can be combined in almost any situation with the various heavy duty wheels. Here also, the wheels are suitable for different application areas depending on the tread.
The polyurethane wheels, for example, impress with high cut and tear propagation resistance, low rolling resistance, high dynamic load capacity and very good floor surface preservation. A distinction is made between the Blickle Extrathane, Blickle Besthane, Blickle Besthane Soft and Blickle Softhane series, which have a different Shore hardness, among other properties.
Steerable heavy duty casters with compressed cast nylon or nylon wheels, on the other hand, are extremely impact resistant and have a particularly high load capacity. They are especially suitable for smooth surfaces and delight users with their smooth rolling and very low roll and swivel resistance. With the LSSD-GSPO 500K, for example, it is possible to achieve a load capacity of 30,000 kg. This is accomplished with a four-point swivel bearing, such as is usually installed in mini excavators.
Heavy duty casters with elastic or super-elastic solid rubber tires and a steel rim are an alternative to pneumatic heavy duty swivel casters. This heavy duty series guarantees puncture resistance, maintenance-free operation under normal usage conditions and good stability with precise steering performance compared to pneumatic tires.
If a high load capacity is required, your best choice is suitable heavy duty casters with wheels made of solid steel. With these, loads of up to 15,000 kg per caster are no problem. If you are looking for swivel casters for use at high temperatures instead, Blickle offers versions with gray cast iron wheels for heavy duty applications. These can be used at ambient temperatures of up to 270 °C.
Thanks to various mechanisms, such as the patented plate spring construction, a robust spring structure with a steel spring or a built-in elastomer hinged plate, the spring-loaded heavy duty swivel casters impress users with spring and damping characteristics that are suitable for the respective application. This ensures that sensitive transport goods arrive safely at the destination despite any unevenness in the surface.
To complete this list, we must also mention the "mighty mites": our mini heavy duty casters. Although the load capacity does not compare to the previously mentioned wheel series, their load capacity of up to 350 kg is still very impressive for the 35 to 65 mm wheel diameter and total height of 52 to 90 mm. Compact casters combine a low mounting height with high load capacities. As a twin wheel swivel caster, the load capacity can even be more than doubled. You can find an overview of the compact casters in our online catalog.
Below you will find a summary of the heavy duty casters with the different types of wheels and their product-specific characteristics:
