What is a cast iron caster
Cast iron is iron or a ferrous alloy which has been heated until it liquefies, and is then poured into a mould to solidify. It is usually made from pig iron. The alloy constituents affect its colour when fractured: white cast iron has carbide impurities which allow cracks to pass straight through. Grey cast iron has graphitic flakes which deflect a passing crack and initiate countless new cracks as the material breaks.Cast iron caster wheels is just made of this cast iron material.
Cast Iron Caster Wheels Applications
Cast iron caster wheel, sometimes referred to as semi-steel caster wheel, offers the highest tensile strength in the industry (30,000 psi). A cost-effective solution for high capacity applications. These iron caster wheels provide high capacity and are less expensive than forged steel caster wheels. They are practical for use on wood block or hardened smooth concrete. On untreated concrete they tend to cause rapid floor deterioration. Although the treads are machined smooth to minimize floor wear, iron caster wheels are not recommended where floor or cargo protection is needed. Gray iron is a tough, long wearing material, but it does not have the impact strength of ductile or forged steel. These caster wheels withstand shock and impact in all but the most severe applications.
