You may be familiar with our Polyurethane rollers, but if you aren’t and are looking for a few examples of why polyurethane rollers make a better choice then rubber or other materials.
Here are 4 of the more popular ones:
Polyurethane drive rollers are used in mounting heavy load machines. Wheels made out of other materials do not last long when fitted into heavy weight lifting machines. Wheels made of rubber wear out first thus making them unreliable and expensive for industrial use. Rubber wheels cannot withstand heavy loads for a long time. Polyurethane rollers are weight resistant. Being exposed to heavy loads does not tear them down at all. For the sake of industrial purposes, polyurethane rollers are the best choice due to their durability and tough nature.
Polyurethane rollers have a high tear strength capacity. Machines like drive belts and forklifts endure so much friction while in operation. Fitting such machines with wheels made of rubber is expensive, and nearly unrealistic. Polyurethane wheels work well in heavy duty machines. They have the capability to withstand the friction that heavy duty machines like forklifts endure while at work. Fitting heavy duty machines with polyurethane wheels is economical. For example, if heavy duty machines were fitted with rubber wheels, they would constant changes thus making them expensive to use. Polyurethane wheels are sturdy and durable thus making them efficient, and economical to use.
The construction sector is always full of activities. The presence of various activities in one designated area, leads to noise emission. The noise in a construction area can be sickening if not controlled. Machines using metal or rubber wheels produce much noise while in operation. Reducing noise in a construction site calls for the use of wheels made of a friction resistant material. To reduce the noise, machines, and other heavy duty implements at a construction site ought to be fitted with polyurethane wheels. These wheels have the capability to move through hard or cemented surfaces without making noise. Polyurethane wheels have the capacity to resist friction thus emitting little or no noise at all.
High Temperature Resistant
Machines using wheels that are made of rubber are subject to climatic changes. It is nearly impossible to use rubber wheels in hot climatic areas. Low temperatures affect the functionality of rubber-made wheels negatively. In the context, it is clear that rubber wheels operate well under specific weather conditions. Polyurethane wheels are resistant to climatic changes. They have the capability to withstand tough weather conditions. When machines like forklifts are operating in extreme weather condition, they are best suited with polyurethane wheels. These wheels give heavy duty machines the capability to perform to their full potential.
