1.0 UNITS OF MEASURE
All dimensions are in mm and all loadings are in kg unless stated. 
2.0 LOADINGS
Working conditions vary enormously with regard to both the type of floor and the severity of the application. Load ratings are based on intermittent use on normal truck or trolley applications. Special conditions may apply under any of the following applications or hazards:
ï Uneven floor surface
ï Ramps, cracks, gullies, door guide rails
ï Track or turntable use
ï Power towing or driven wheels and rollers
ï Any application other than manually propelled truck and trolley use
It may be appropriate, in certain circumstances, to select a castor or wheel with a load capacity much greater than appears necessary, please ask our technical sales team for assistance in product selection.
3.0 LUBRICATION
All moving parts are liberally treated with a high quality grease. This forms a protective layer which minimises wear by metal to metal contact. Many swivel castors are fitted with swivel head seals helping to reduce maintenance to a minimum. Where lubrication is necessary, this should be carried out using a pressure oil gun, taking care to ensure that the lubricant reaches the king pin head on single ball race castors.
In addition, heavier duty castors and wheels are often fitted with grease nipples and/or dimpled and drilled axle bolts for replenishment purposes under arduous working conditions.
Nylon wheel bushes are virtually self-lubricating but will benefit from occasional lubrication, particularly in very dusty conditions.
A general purpose lithium based grease is used in most castors with a normal operating temperature range of -30∞c to +130∞c.
3.1 Low temperatures
In low temperatures, the consistency of the grease increases up to a point where the swivel and rolling performance is reduced. For low temperature applications it is recommended that a double ball race castor is used and fitted with low temperature grease. Please ask for details.
3.2 High temperatures
In high temperature applications the grease will operate satisfactorily but will need regular replenishment. This particularly applies in forced draught ovens where the oil component of grease can be volatilised causing carburisation. Castors fitted with high temperature wheels and grease are detailed in the ëSpecial Application Castorsí catalogue. High temperature wheels are listed in the ëSpecial Application Wheelsí catalogue. Please request a copy.
4.0 CASTOR TYPES
In general, castors can be sub-divided into two main types:
4.1 Pressed steel
Pressed steel castors incorporate single or double ball bearing swivel race way construction. The balls run in tracks formed in the fork and top plate pressings which are secured together by a heavily riveted steel king pin.
4.2 Fabricated steel
Usually consisting of precision machined heavy steel forgings housing combinations of tapered roller or ball bearing races. The fork legs are usually securely welded to the swivel head forging giving an extremely strong construction suitable for heavy loads.
