Pneumatic Casters

Pneumatic Casters

These industrial pneumatic casters feature air filled pneumatic wheels. These industrial casters are designed for low speed manually moved applications only. Air filled pneumatic wheels provide a cushioned ride, shock absorption and quiet operation. Pneumatic casters are ideally suited for moving fragile or delicate cargo where caster overall height is not critical. Casters with pneumatic wheels are usually the best choice for use outdoors over rough surfaces ( i.e. gravel ) or on grass. The wide footprint on 8″ or larger pneumatic wheels provides stability on gravel and does not sink into lawns.

Pneumatic casters and pneumatic wheels are also popular for indoor use in places such as hospitals, scientific and electronic laboratories, hotels, department stores and TV or movie studios.

Pneumatic wheels with black tires do not mark the floor as long as the wheel is allowed to roll. Changing directions without allowing a swivel caster to turn gradually around, or dragging a black rubber wheel sideways, can mark some floors.

“You should NEVER select on the basis of load capacity alone. If you have any doubt as to which wheel or caster is the BEST choice for your application contact us for a recommendation: CALL US AT 800-501-3808”

We suggest that you do NOT drill the mounting holes to attach the casters until you receive them.

We do NOT include mounting Hardware.

Choose pneumatic casters with confidence because there is nothing more noise absorbing and shock isolating than air filled pneumatic wheels. When selecting a pneumatic caster, remember that capacity ratings are based on loads being moved manually with the proper tire inflation. If you consider maintaining the proper air pressure in a pneumatic wheel a maintenance chore, then consider our Foam Filled Pneumatic Casters or our Pneumatic Caster Alternative. Please contact us for a recommendation if you need pneumatic casters to be moved with mechanically powered equipment.

All of our pneumatic casters come with ball bearings in the pneumatic wheels.

If you want to provide a cushioned ride for sensitive materials, whether they are glass, ceramics or school band instruments, select from our pneumatic casters or contact us for assistance.

All pneumatic wheels have ball bearings.

Wheel Brakes appear as an option after you select a swivel pneumatic caster.

Do NOT use for standing loads at Max Capacity.

Wheel diameter, caster overall height and capacity vary depending on air pressure and the weight involved.

Capacity ratings are based on use in a manual operation at air pressure indicated.

You should never select on the basis of load capacity alone. Capacity ratings do not take into account the effort required to manually move a load. Capacity ratings are based on manual operation under ideal conditions. If these casters are going to be moved by mechanically powered equipment, consult us for a reduced capacity rating based on your application.

Bearing Size

We have 4 different options for Ball Bearings. Standard Ball Bearings are available in either 1/2″ ID or 3/4″ ID. If you have a 1/2″ axle and that axle goes directly into the bearing of the wheel, order 1/2″ bearing. If your axle goes into “Top Hat Spanners” keep those Spanners from your old wheels and order the 3/4″ bearing option. Precision Sealed Ball Bearings are also available in both sizes for an additional cost.
