World’s first: Non-staining and antistatic solid rubber tyres
Blickle is launching a non-staining, antistatic wheel version with solid rubber tyres
Antistatic wheels and casters are used as important system components in a great variety of sectors. These include, for example, medical technology, the electrical and semiconductor industry, the automotive industry, as well as hospitals. The wheels and casters are preferred for use on transport units. They prevent electrostatic discharges caused by both the transport unit as well as the material which is transported, and which can damage sensitive goods or may injure the operator of the transport unit.Up to now, it had to be accepted that only black "antistatic" tyres were offered on the market. However, these leave undesirable black stains on many floor surfaces. Above all in sectors with high hygiene requirements, such as hospitals, these stains resulted in increased cleaning work and therefore increased costs.
A unique combination
For its ALEV wheel series, Blickle has now developed an antistatic version with non-marking grey tyres made of elastic solid rubber. The combination of these properties is therefore a genuine innovation in the field of wheels with rubber tyres. With a hardness of 65° Shore A and 10^7 Ohm leak resistance as specified by the standard, these wheels do not leave any stains. The wheels therefore not only reduce the risk of injury and damage, but also improve cleanliness in their work area.
All in one: Operational comfort, cleanliness and protection!
With all of their positive characteristics such as vibration absorbance, good floor preservation and high load capacity, good operational comfort as well as resistance to many aggressive substances, these wheels are not only suitable for sensitive environments, but also for a wide range of applications. The new wheel version is available with diameters of 100, 125, 160, 200 and 250 millimetres.
In addition to this new development, the Blickle range includes other wheels and casters with antistatic and electrically conductive versions. Due to the various materials for the wheel centre and the tread and their associated characteristics, the right wheel can be found for almost any field of application.
