Description

Machinery Caster Information

Model Series:

  • U.S. Model Series: KW
  • Manufacturer Part Number (MPN): WRS 150 S
  • Manufacturer product name: Heavy Duty Machinery Casters.

Uses:

  • Machinery Casters are ideal for months of static load bearing.
  • They excel at short distance rolling.
  • Intermittent travel also works very well.
  • These machinery casters continue to easily roll even after long standstills under heavy loads.

Features:

  • Full height machinery casters with the top loading plate provides extra support.
  • Both Models come standard with six bolt holes 

Included:

  • Each machine roller is sold separately.

Construction:

  • Robust carbon steel frame construction.
  • 5.9 in. steel load wheels.
  • Ball bearings.

Corrosion Resistance:

  • ***************galvanized axles provide upgraded weather resistance.***************

Applications:

  • Machinery casters are perfect for moving heavy loads in shipbuilding, steel and mining, machine fabrication, steel erecting and general construction.
  • They are often used on construction sites.
  • Machinery casters allow transporting equipment and other loads on steel frames.
  • They can be used up-side-down as a conveyor, where the casters are stationary while the load is moving across.

Manufacturer:

  • Manufactured by Börkey
  • Made in Germany

Other specs:

  • Maximum safe speed: 390 feet per minute.
  • Rolling resistance (on solid surface such as steel)
    • 0.7 % of load weight

Other Important Information:

  • Individual machinery caster capacities are calculated based on moving the load across a steel surface (all wheels are touching the floor and the load weight is equally divided across the caster footprint). When using 4 (or more) casters, load may rock on uneven surface, increasing load weight applied to any caster. Therefore, select suitable rated machinery caster capacity carefully.
  • Börkey Machinery Casters are made to run on a solid strong surface such as steel. Operating the machinery casters across concrete floors – especially repeatedly along the same path - may damage the floor. Machinery casters can also be used on crane rails or steel beams.
  • The track or floor surface is vital for the safe transportation of the load, not just the carrying capacity of the machinery caster. Movement on tarmac and concrete is restricted, and the machinery casters should never be used on uncovered tile. For best results on tile, concrete, or tarmac we recommend putting a steel plate of a minimum of 0.4-inch thickness underneath.
  • Precautionary measures must be taken for use on inclines to avoid run-away loads!
  • When mixing and matching machinery casters (or different load supports), keep the load at same loading height. Otherwise casters will tip and become point-loaded.
