Stainless Steel High Temp Casters For Food Processing Equipment

Food Processing


This post covers two stainless steel high temp casters for food processing equipment.

STAINLESS STEEL HIGH TEMP PHENOLIC

High temp phenolic caster wheels are a mix of phenolic resin and glass fiber. They can operate at a range of -40°F to 475°F, and work well in dry heat environments where floors are clean and debris-free. Phenolic caster wheels tend to pick up debris, which over time will make it difficult to roll, shortening the wheel's lifespan.

STAINLESS STEEL HIGH TEMP EPOXY

High temp epoxy caster wheels are glass fiber mixed with epoxy resin. They offer excellent physical and strength properties to withstand high temperature variations and cooling cycles. Operating temperatures for high temp epoxy casters range from -40°F to 480°F. Epoxy's outstanding properties are resistant to most chemicals and water. Unlike phenolics, epoxy caster wheels perform well in dry and moisture-rich high temp environments.

SUMMARY

High temp phenolic caster wheels are great for dry heat environments only, operate best on clean and debris-free floors, and don't do well in settings that need frequent wash downs.

In contrast, high temp epoxy caster wheels are great for both dry and wet environments, and are unaffected by most chemicals and water.
