Manufacturer of Industrial Wheels
Terms
Polyurethane on cast iron is the most versatile and cost effective industrial wheel on the market. Trew’s polyurethane tread is liquid cast and chemically bonded to a Class 30 solid web cast iron center. The tread is resistant to most chemicals, protects floors, is quiet, has great load bearing, wears like iron, and is non-marking and non-sparking. The wheels can be equipped with a variety of bearings including the easy rolling ball bearing setup. We offer a very large selection of sizes and bearing combinations. If what you need is not listed please consult the factory.

Features

N/A

  • Made in USA
    All Trew wheels are made in the U.S.A.
  • Liquid Cast Tread
    Wheels are liquid cast polyurethane, chemically bonded to durable cast iron centers.
  • Solid Web Casting
    Most centers have a solid web design which affords greater strength and allows easier cleaning.
  • Unique Crown Tread
    Trew’s unique crown tread design with no-parting line affords optimum rollability and comes standard in most sizes with widths of 1 1/2”, 2”, 2 1/2”, and 3”. Please specify if flat tread is desired.
  • Retaining Washers
    All wheels with roller bearings are shipped standard with flat metal retaining washers. Tri-washers are available on 3/4” roller bearing wheels at no extra charge.
  • Keyways
    Most polyurethane wheels with iron centers can be supplied with a keyway and/or set screws as an option.
  • Capacities
    Capacities listed are based on the use of our standard 95A polyurethane tread. Other urethane compounds available including 70D extra hard that increases capacity substantially.
  • Grease Fittings
    Grease fittings are standard on wheels 5” diameter and larger.
  • Washer Seals
    Washer seals are available as an option.
  • Alternate Bore Sizes
    Non-standard bore sizes are available on most sizes.
  • Tapered Bearings
    All tapered roller bearing wheels come complete with seals and spacers.
  • Abrasion Resistance
    Polyurethane tired wheels have up to 5 or more times the abrasion resistance of rubber wheels.
  • Roll Easily
    Polyurethane wheels start and roll much more easily than rubber under heavy loads.
  • Non-Marking
    Polyurethane wheels are non-marking regardless of color.
  • Operating Temperature
    Operating temperature range for Trew’s standard polyurethane wheels is -20°F to 200°F intermittent, 0°F to 180°F Continuous. Special urethanes are available that are more suitable for higher/lower temperature applications.
  • Wet Conditions
    Trew offers special polyurethane treads for constant wet or moist conditions. Please consult the factory.
  • Non-Sparking
    Urethane treads are non-sparking and non-conductive.
  • Noise Reduction
    Also available with softer polyurethane treads which significantly reduce noise in most applications.
  • Cast Iron
    Trew cast iron has a minimum tensile strength of 30,000 PSI.
  • Constant Rotation
    Capacities are based on intermittent use. Constant rotation reduces capacities.
  • Bearing Lubrication
    Bearings require additional lubrication prior to use.
  • Chemical Resistance
    Polyurethane wheels are resistant to most chemicals, solvents, and detergents.
  • Increased Capacities
    Harder poly treads, available in all sizes, increase stated capacity substantially. Please consult the factory.
  • Ultra Thick Treads
    Ultra thick treads are available on all sizes. Thicker tread provides more cushioning and greater capacity in most applications.
  • Precision Ball Bearings
    All 1 1/2” to 3” wide wheels are available with sealed precision grade ball bearings and T-bushing set-up.
  • Three Tread Colors
    Three colors of polyurethane to choose from at no additional cost - green, red or blue. Green tread is our standard and is most readily available from stock. Other colors are available.
  • Metric Sizes
    Metric sized wheels are available.
  • Tensile Strength
    The tensile strength of our standard polyurethane is 7400 PSI.
  • Special Polyurethanes
    Choice of polyurethane hardness: 95A is standard and suitable for most applications; however, we offer a complete range of urethane types and hardnesses as options. (Non-standard compounds may extend delivery time.)
