Caster Parts & Accessories
Caster Concepts stocks a wide range of standard and custom replacement parts for many different requirements. It is not unusual the life of a heavy duty caster wheel can be prolonged by replacing a variety of components that can be easily replaced as wear parts of a caster.
Replaceable parts for a heavy duty casters fall into three main categories.
- Bearings – Any bearing with regular extended use. This could be tapered roller bearing, straight roller bearing or ball bearing. Generally the tapered and straight roller bearing require regular maintenance which includes regular greasing and with tapered rolling bearing
- Axles – At times, in an abusive application, axles can become damaged. An axle may be bent or threads can be damaged during operation. It is a good practice when replacing axles to replace bearings to prolong the life of each.
- Retreading/Remolding of Polyurethane Tires – A unique offering by Caster Concepts is the ability to remove a poly tire from the wheel core — pouring a new tire on the core and replacing all the bearings. In the end functionally a new wheel. This process is cost effective when there has been added operation to the wheel cores (threading, special machining, etc)
