CHOOSING THE PROPER WHEEL

Wheels_w_blue_background_copyWhen choosing the correct wheel, it is important to select the right one for your application. When choosing the proper wheel, the surrounding area in which it will be used must be considered. The type of surface that the wheel will roll on and the environment will help you make the best selection. Additionally, the wheel you chose should withstand the weight of the load that it will carry. Load capacities vary depending on the size and material composition of the wheel.
 CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

  • What is the total load capacity that will be supported?
  • What type of surface and where will the wheel be used?
  • What is the condition of the surface?
  • What type of mounting is necessary?
  • Are there any height limitations?
  • Is a brake required?
  • Will equipment be subject to shock loading?
  • What is the maximum speed the equipment will experience?
  • Will the equipment be used in food preparation or handling?
  • Does the environment have fluctuating or extreme temperatures?
