High temperature use:
The customer must specify the temperature and type of application before ordering to ensure that the appropriate wheel type is selected. As temperatures increase wheels become weaker and this lowers the load capacity. In static (non-moving) applications with sustained high temperatures over long periods of time the material will begin to deteriorate, which shortens the working life of the wheel. Fallshaw make three different wheel types designed specifically for use in high temperature environments. These specialised wheels use standard lithium complex grease (STABUTHERM® GH 461) which has excellent water resistance (24hrs at 90°C), bearing retention and long life.
1) Glass filled Nylon 150 – 210°C (300 to 410°F):
The best choice for Hospitality based applications such as ‘food baking’ ovens. It can withstand sustained high temperatures and is gentle and quiet on most floor surfaces. Fibreglass reinforced nylon wheels are the preferred wheel for extended periods of up to 210°C (410°F) (assuming most of their life is spent outside the oven), and for short periods up to 230°C (446°F).
