Track wiper brushes are utilized when any type of wheel is running on a track where debris can stop the movement, damage the wheel, or take it off its track or path. We offer a variety of track wipers that cater to several of our industry challenges such as uneven terrain or flooring with deviations, to extreme amounts of debris, large and small that shorten the life of your casters and wheels.
Among our track wiper options you will find our Poly Wiper which is considered the standard option when it comes to track wipers. Along with our Poly Track Wiper we offer a Poly Spring Loaded Track wiper, which performs similarly to our Standard Poly but is better suited to withstand floor deviations and uneven terrain. One of the most popular Track Wipers is our Brush Style Track Wiper. These are often used on Automated Guided Vehicles to scrap debris out of the way so the drives don’t run over the debris and damage the drive wheel or even the motor.
All-Around Track Wipers completely seal the caster to keep debris from contaminating the wheel or rig. This complete barrier keeps items from rolling under the rig from the sides or the back, unlike other wipers that feature a guard around the front part of the caster. This style of track wiper also provides a unique aesthetic perspective to your industrial Casters.
The Brush Style Track Wiper is a popular type of Track Wiper that uses bristles to sweep away objects that could cause the wheels to get stuck. However, the stiffness of the bristles needed to move heavier objects may affect the mobility of the caster. These wipers are commonly used on Automated Guided Vehicles to clear debris and prevent damage to the drive wheel or motor, which is crucial because AGVs are expensive and downtime should be avoided.
Our Poly Track Wiper is considered the standard option when it comes to track wipers, and is designed to move larger items like nuts/bolts/etc. out of the way of the caster wheel. It’s a cost-effective way to keep a caster wheel running on a track where debris can stop the movement, damage the wheel, or take it off the track.
Our Poly Spring-Loaded Track Wiper performs similarly to our Standard Poly Wiper. The difference is the spring-loaded wiper has the ability to move vertically to compensate for uneven surfaces, making it better suited to withstand floor deviations and uneven terrain.
