Forged steel is an alloy of carbon and iron that is compressed under extreme pressure to make a very hard and strong substance. In the forging process heat or force is applied to steel billets or ingots, causing the material to change shape while in a solid state. The resulting highly compressed material is exceptionally durable.
Forged steel is not porous, has a tensile strength of 60,000 PSI and adapts extremely well to surface variations. All of that means these wheels are virtually failure-free. These wheels are extremely hard with a durometer of Rockwell B (80 – 90). That, along with their impressive strength-to-weight ratio, leads to reduced surface friction and allows for easier push/pull.
Options/Components: Forged steel wheels come with a variety of bearing options for optimal performance at different applications.
Ideal Applications: Highly demanding applications including factory use, waste bins, platform trucks, stock trucks and heavy material handling. Also, with a temperature rating that tops out at 1,300ºF, they can be used in bakeries, autoclaves and other extreme heat environments.
