CC Apex: Noise Reducer Extraordinaire
A poultry producer was using a very hard 4” x 1-1/4” polyolefin wheel for their feed carts. The wheels were very noisy, and broke after only a few months of use, causing downtime and replacement costs. The polyolefin was cracking due to debris and particulates getting imbedded in the wheel.
Tired of replacing broken wheels, the poultry producer reached out to a Regional Solutions Manager (RSM) at Caster Connection for help. The Caster Connection RSM recommended they switch to a 4” x 1.25” CC Apex wheel. The CC Apex’s polyurethane was designed to expel debris, while the wheel’s standard sealed precision ball bearings eliminate noise. The lightweight aluminum core added extra durability dissipates heat to extend the life of the wheel.
The poultry producer hasn’t had to replace any wheels since switching to the CC Apex. The client is very satisfied and is comforted to know that there won’t be any more downtime due to faulty wheels.
