This E.R. Wagner plate caster has a polyurethane on polyolefin wheel, a chrome steel flat base with holes for bolting or welding to an object, and a rigid design to allow movement in a back-and-forth motion. The stainless-steel plate, or base, is durable and resistant to corrosion. The plate caster’s wheel consists of a gray polyurethane tread molded to a light gray polyolefin core, and it rolls with ease, provides quiet operation, resists abrasion and affect, and protects floors. The wheel is suitable for bearing light to heavy loads on carpeted and hard-surfaced floors. The medium-soft polyurethane tread is non-marking and resistant to water, oil, and most acids, and it has a tread hardness of 50 to 60 Shore D. The wheel has a really useful operating temperature range of -20 to 180 degrees F. The POM (polyoxymethylene) bearing provides durability and corrosion resistance, and reduces the need for oil lubrication. This caster meets the certification standards of NSF International (National Sanitation Foundation) for casters and wheels in the food service and sanitary industries.
Plate casters are wheeled mechanisms used to beef up and maneuver objects such as carts, racks, and dollies. Plate casters are named for their mounting system: they have got a flat plate, regularly with four bolt holes, that forms the top of the caster and attaches to the object. Plate casters vary in their maneuverability. Some are rigid and only roll at a fixed angle, at the same time as other casters swivel to allow a 360-degree change in direction. Plate casters may have brakes, and swivel casters may have locks to set them to a fixed angle. Casters may have single or twin (dual) wheels made from a number of materials. Typically, wheels with hard tread material have a higher load capacity and roll easier than soft tread wheels, which provide quieter operation and cushioning. Load capacity for plate casters could also be affected by tread width and wheel diameter. Plate casters are used on furniture, carts, shelving, appliances, scrap bins, production dollies, and utility trucks for material handling applications in a number of industries.
