Colson V-Groove wheels with capacities up to 6000 pounds

V-Groove wheels are for track or floor operation on inverted angle iron track in production lines. They are also used with hand or conveyor trucks. V-Groove surface and face are machine finished. These wheels handle loads from 800 to 6,000 lbs. per wheel. Designed for floor operation, or for track mounted flush or on top of floors, the wheel gives greater flexibility and better use of available floor space. Curves and switches may be used in track operation. Wheels are cast with reinforced section at maximum stress points. The type of track layout and casters are dependent upon floor conditions, area, distance and load. Consult your local Colson representative for advice on the proper caster for the most economic and efficient handling of your particular application.

Temperature Range: -45ºF to +180ºF. If metal washers specified: -45ºF to +500ºF (Roller bearing only)

Finish: Green alkyd enamel

 

Note: The 6″ x 3″ V-Groove wheel is forged steel. All other models are cast iron.

Recommended track size and clearance dimensions are in the chart below. The base plate may be mounted directly to floor or to a cement grouting for leveling track if necessary because of uneven floor conditions.
