Pneumatic wheels are rubber wheels fitted around a metal hub. They come in a variety of different sizes and styles, and they are available for anything from light-duty to heavy-duty applications.
Many industries utilize pneumatic caster wheels to move fragile loads – meaning those that may become damaged with minimal jarring or bumping – over any kind of surface, including grassy areas, pavement, and concrete floors in industrial facilities. These wheels are known for their quiet operation and ability to improve working conditions in loud environments.
Excellent shock absorbing benefits make these casters ideal for uneven floors and indoor and outdoor rough terrain. They are ideal on aircraft ground support equipment, helicopter dollies, roof maintenance equipment, mobile construction shelters, and other equipment carrying electronics or other highly sensitive materials.
Aerol pneumatic wheels are also offered with sealed hub construction for use where air-tight, water-tight, and permanent lubrication features are essential as in boat trailers and all weather and dust applications.
Aerol has a wide variety of caster options. Many of these not only improve function – but also provide safety and add longevity to the product. When considering safety options, the most common consideration would be caster swivel locks, floor locks, and aluminum or steel pedal foot brakes.
Other options include clean room certified casters that do not emit gasses, are non-marking, and sealed so grease will not leak out, In addition, non-magnetic and spark proof casters are ideal for companies that make black powder, explosives, or fireworks.
