Pneumatic and Flat-Free Wheels

Monday, May 23rd, 2016 Published By: Roy Williams

Pneumatic and Flat-Free WheelsPneumatic wheels have many benefits in industrial caster applications.  The main benefit is the ability to absorb shock loads from impacts and cushion the load.

 

With proper inflation, our wheels are suitable for extended service. Pneumatic wheels include tire, tube and a centered or offset rim/hub assembly. Centered hubs are designed for mounting into casters and equipment. Offset hubs are available for use on hand trucks and portable equipment. A variety of bearing types and sizes are also available.


 

Pneumatic and Flat-Free WheelsFlat-Free wheels are an alternative to pneumatic wheels. They have the same characteristics as a pneumatic wheel except they never go flat.

Flat-free wheels are made from closed cell micro-cellular polyurethane foam and offers the same advantages of a pneumatic wheel without the possibility of air loss. Flat-free wheels provide shock load protection and a smooth cushioned ride, rolling easily over debris and small obstacles. Perfect for hand trucks, dollies, carts and mobile equipment such as generators or lawn and garden equipment equipment

This closed cell, expanded foam construction wheel also resists water absorption.  Flat-Free wheels provide shock load protection and a smooth cushioned ride, rolling easily over debris and small obstacles.  A sawtooth type tread design offers both traction and maneuverability.  8”, 10” or 16″ Flat-Free wheels are perfect for hand trucks, dollies, carts and mobile equipment such as generators and lawn & garden equipment.

Comparing Pneumatic Wheels and Flat-Free Wheels

Flat-Free Wheels

 

Wheels have changed dramatically over the years and  pneumatic wheels are no exception. Today, we have a true pneumatic wheel (with air) and a flat free wheel (without air). These two quality types have many similar features and come in many sizes. You should also know when to use pneumatic wheels and flat free wheels.

Here are a few things to consider…

Features of Pneumatic Wheels and Flat Free Wheels

Both will deliver a cushioned ride, shock absorption and quiet operation but one trumps the other as virtually maintenance free, it will not go flat. The true pneumatic will have the edge on the ultimate ride as the tube and tire pressure can be adjusted. The flat free offers much the same but in a microcellular polyurethane foam type wheel. Because it is a polyurethane type, it will also have a greater sustainability than the rubber pneumatic wheel in water, most chemical, oil and lubricant environments.

Pneumatic and Flat Free Wheels Come in Many Sizes

Typically diameters will range from 8 inches to 16 inches and load capacities will range from 300 pounds to 1000 pounds per wheel. One of the more popular applications of the flat free wheel is the wheelbarrow. On the job needs for a reliable, durable and heavy duty wheel have made this the tire type of choice. Flat free wheels are available in 3, 4 and 6 inch hub lengths and many different bearing types and sizes.

When to Use Pneumatic Wheels and Flat Free Wheels

Both types of wheels are offered with centered hubs for use in casters and offset hubs for use with hand trucks and other various types of equipment. These wheels are industrial and strictly for use in low speed applications. Both work well indoors and outdoors in hospitals, hotels, electronic laboratories and production studios, just to name a few. The wheels will not mark floors and the wide footprint will easily traverse in lawns, gravel, dirt and uneven terrain.

Never Select a Wheel on the Sole Basis of Load Capacity
