Caster City: The Premiere Source of Casters for Animal LaboratoriesCaster Admin
If you manage an animal laboratory or kennel, you know that flooring needs to be tough and easy to clean. But did you know that the type of caster wheel you use can make a big difference in the durability and lifespan of your floor?
In this article, we will be looking at the best casters and caster wheels for these types of floors and explain why Caster City is the premiere source for caster wheels and accessories for Animal laboratories.
Uses of Casters in Animal Laboratories
Casters are an important part of animal laboratories. They enable animals to be moved around easily and safely, and they can also be used to create a variety of different set-ups. By attaching casters to the bottom of cages or kennels, animals can be easily moved from one location to another without having to be lifted or carried. This is especially beneficial in situations where animals are too large or too heavy to be lifted safely.
Casters can also be used to create a mobile home for an animal. For example, they can be attached to the floor of a kennel or animal pen. This way, the animals can still be moved around easily, if necessary, but they will have a more stable home that they can return to each day. This is especially useful for animals that need to be moved around frequently, such as those in research facilities. By attaching casters to the bottom of an animal’s cage, the entire setup can be quickly and easily moved from one location to another.
Factors to Consider When Choosing Casters in Animal Laboratories
Casters are used in animal laboratories on many pieces of equipment including kennel carts used to transport kennels, animal cages, exam and grooming tables. Caster City caster wheels allow for easy maneuverability of heavy equipment and make it possible to move animals around the laboratory with ease.
When choosing the best casters for your animal laboratory, there are a few factors to consider to ensure you are completely satisfied with your choice:
The type of flooring in your laboratory will dictate the type of caster you need. If you have a concrete or epoxy floor, you will need a caster that can roll smoothly over those surfaces. If your laboratory has grates, you will need a caster that can grip the grate surface in order to avoid slipping.
The weight of the equipment you plan to move is also an important consideration. Heavier equipment will require stronger casters that can support the weight without tipping over. With capacities ranging from 300 to 5,000 pounds per caster, we have just what you need to get the job done safely and efficiently.
Polyurethane Caster Wheels
Animal cage and rack washdown machines are high impact devices that can damage casters and caster wheels. Our casters are designed to withstand the high impact forces of these machines. Our casters are made from a high impact resistant polyurethane compound. Polyurethane is an elastomer material that has excellent impact resistance. It will flex and absorb the energy of impacts instead of transmitting it to the machine, which can cause costly damage.
Polyurethane caster wheels are also an excellent choice for kennel and animal lab floors because it provides both floor protection and long life. Polyurethane is a tough, durable material that can withstand the rigors of daily wash downs and withstand the weight of animals. Our welded disc polyurethane wheels are available in either four- or five-inch diameters.
Polyurethane caster wheels also offer the advantage of a quieter ride compared to a hard composition wheel like nylon or polyolefin. This matters when reducing the noise of the cages to reduce animal anxiety.
We use the highest quality materials and construction methods to ensure that our casters will last for years.
Delrin and Stainless Steels Bearings
If you’re looking for casters that can stand up to the tough conditions of an animal lab or hospital, look no further than our selection of Delrin bearings, stainless steel precision sealed ball bearings, or stainless roller options. Our wheels are designed to resist corrosion and provide a smooth ride, even on concrete or epoxy floors with grates.
Animal research laboratories are constantly searching for ways to minimize the spread of infection and contamination. One area of concern is the casters used on carts and cages. Carts and cages equipped with casters can be easily moved around the laboratory, increasing the risk of spreading infection.
Caster City’s Delrin bearings, stainless steel precision sealed ball bearings, and stainless-steel roller bearings are ideal for use in animal laboratories. These types of bearings are designed to resist corrosion and minimize the risk of contamination. Delrin bearings are made from a durable plastic that is easy to clean and disinfect. Stainless steel precision sealed ball bearings have a sealing mechanism that keeps out dirt, dust, and other contaminants. Stainless steel roller bearings are also resistant to corrosion and contamination.
The caster stem is the part of the caster wheel that connects the wheel to the base. The stem is important because it allows the wheel to rotate freely while still being attached to the base. Without the stem, the wheel would not be able to rotate and would be much more difficult to move.
At Caster City, our caster stems are made from high-quality materials that are designed to withstand the rigors of daily use in a busy lab setting and are available in a variety of sizes and styles to suit your specific needs.
