FORGED STEEL WHEELS

  • Drop forged steel wheels are hot forged from carbon steel billets. The forging process improves grain flow, enhances ductility and tensile strength. Suitable for high capacity, abusive applications. Forged steel is 64,000 psi tensile strength.
  • Wheel Face:Flat with rounded edges or V-groove.
  • Finish:Clear coat enamel.
  • Temperature Range:Up to 800°F.
  • Hardness:Rockwell 80 B.
  • Forged Steel / V-Groove:Wheel face and V-groove are machined from drop forged steel. A relief groove at the base of the "V" tends to equalize the load to each face of the angle track when in operation. Wheel face and bore are machined for concentricity to proper tracking. These wheels can be used not only on a track but flat surfaces as well. VH wheels feature a larger bore for greater capacity. Please note: Track alignment is critical when utilizing V-groove wheels. Wheel Face: V-Groove. Finish: Clear.

DUCTILE IRON WHEELS

  • Capacity:Up to 6,000 lbs.
  • Wheel Face:FM flat tread design, FR full radius tread design, VM V-groove design.
  • Finish:Black painted.
  • Temperature Range:Up to +800°F.
  • Tensile Strength:65K PSI.
  • Ductile Iron Wheels:Ductile Iron / Flat Tread, Ductile Iron / Crown Tread, Ductile Iron / V-Groove.

CAST IRON WHEELS

  • Capacity:Up to 8,000 lbs.
  • Finish:Gray enamel.
  • Hardness:Brinell 145.
  • Temperature Range:Up to 800°F.
  • Wheel Face:Machined flat with rounded edges.
  • Cast Iron Wheels:Cast Iron Large Bore, Cast Iron High Tensile.
  • Cast Iron, sometimes referred to as semi-steel, offers the highest tensile strength in the industry (30,000 psi). A cost-effective solution for high capacity applications.
  • Cast Iron / Flanged Wheels:Various bore sizes available for use as plain bore wheels or to be used with keyway and set screw, or with a variety of bearings. Cast iron offers 30,000 psi tensile strength.
  • Cast Iron / V-Groove Wheels:Wheel face and V-groove are machined from heavy duty cast iron. A relief groove at the base of the "V" tends to equalize the load to each face of the angle track when in operation. Wheel face and bore are machined for concentricity to proper tracking. These wheels can be used not only on track but flat surfaces as well. CA/VL wheels feature a larger bore for greater capacity. Please note: Track alignment is critical when utilizing V-groove wheels.
  • Note:Select bearings featured are recommended for standard applications. For special applications or alternate bearings, consult Acorn.

STEEL WHEELS

  • Steel Wheels provide the highest degree of sanitation. Type 1018 is magnetic. All wheels are available with Sealed Precision Ball Bearings, Bushings or Roller Bearings. Custom sizes made to prints to fit any application.
  • Type 1018 steel.
  • Magnetic.
  • Wheels can be machined straight sided or machined to contour.
  • Slightly crowned tread face with rounded corners.

DROP FORGED WHEELS

  • Capacity:Up to 11,000 lbs.
  • Tensile Strength:60,000 PSI.
  • Temperature:Up to +1300°F.
  • Hardness:Rockwell 80 B.
  • ASTM 1045 high carbon steel is hot drop forged to improve grain structure of the wheel, enhancing ductibility and tensile strength. This is the ultimate extreme duty wheel.
  • Offers the maximum weight capacity, impact strength, durability and rollability of all our wheels.
  • Tread face is precisely machined for a smooth, centrical ride, tread edge is machine round.
  • Precision & tapered bearings maximize mobility and performance in towing and severe use environments.

DUCTILE V-GROOVE WHEELS

  • Capacity:Up to 7,000 lbs.
  • Temperature Range:-45°F up to +800°F.
  • Tensile Strength: 45,000 PSI.
  • Made specifically for use on inverted angle iron track; they can also be used on flat surfaces.
  • Each wheel has a precisely machined 90° V-groove with relief groove which enables load equalization.
  • Ductile steel is a combination of special alloys that give it higher weight capacities than cast iron, and is more economical than drop forged steel; also referred to malleable iron; material may flex rather than cracking or breaking when submitted to an extreme shock load.
  • Extra thick walled, heavy-duty core, hub & tread face.
  • Precision & tapered bearings maximize mobility and performance in towing and severe use environments.

SOLID STEEL V-GROOVE WHEELS

  • Capacity:Up to 5,000 lbs.
  • Solid ASTM 1045 steel, straight sided construction offers the maximum weight capacity and durability of any V-groove type wheel on the market.
  • Sealed precision ball bearings offer the best possible mobility and do not require any maintenance.
  • Wheels are zinc plated to resist rust.
  • Offers long service life; even in ongoing usage applications.
  • Popular applications include use in casters and on sliding gates.
  • Can be purchased as kits for gate use; includes bushings & axles.

STAINLESS STEEL WHEELS
