The product engineering department at Hamilton Caster is proud to release the first of its kind heavy duty stainless steel caster series rated up to 1,600 lbs. load capacity! The caster is designed for extra heavy loads in severe applications where corrosive environments or sanitary considerations demand having all fork and hardware components of stainless steel. This new heavy duty series rounds out Hamilton¿s stainless steel caster offerings with their existing light and medium duty stainless series.
Each caster undergoes a special process after fabrication to insure the removal of embedded contaminants, edge burrs, and surface stresses. The resulting high-lustre finish not only enhances appearance but provides a smoother, less porous surface that¿s impervious to dirt and easier to clean - making these casters ideal for chemical factories, food production facilities, pharmaceutical houses, and other wash-down environments.
Swivel and matching rigid models offer a broad variety of hard or soft tread wheels from 4" to 8" diameter, including CNC-machined solid stainless steel wheels (shown in picture). Standard bearing selections include stainless steel precision ball bearing, plastic sleeve type, and plain bore.
This new series will be stocked for 24-48 hour PRONTO® shipment, which eliminates the long wait usually associated with the purchase of specialty casters.
