Polyurethane on aluminum wheels which are engineered to outperform any caster in the industry.
Don't Trust Words, Trust Truths There are differences between casters.
Durastar Casters are engineered to outperform any caster in the industry. The SIRIUSwheel carries an INDUSTRY LEADING 3 YEAR WARRANTY. The high quality, 87 Shore A polyurethane tread, uniquely combines a smooth softer roll with increased capacity and longer life. This increased life is needed in tow-line and heavy industry applications where fabrication debris and constant movement can effect a lower quality wheel.
Take a look at these two casters, a SIRIUS caster and a common orange caster.
The tread on the SIRIUS wheel is manufactured from 100% high grade pure polyurethane that is poured around a high-tech aluminum core. This will eliminate shock and load failure while increasing the overall ergonomic performance factor. Competitors’ wheels will add fillers to the polyurethane tread to "cheapen" the compound, resulting in a wheel that will underperform and fail.
That's run some tests to find evidence and not just do the storytelling.
TEST #1 Each caster was mounted to the load arm of a drum type test machine and 2000 lbs. of weight was applied. The test was conducted within the following parameters:
Surface Speed: 2.5 mph Surface Material: Smooth Steel Sustained Travel: 120 seconds clockwise and 120 second counter-clockwise rotating.
As the accompanying photographs show, the Durastar SIRIUS Wheel outperformed the competition. The common orange wheel failed with severe tread cracking after only 4.7 miles but the Durastar SIRIUS wheel traveled 100 miles and the test was halted. It NEVER failed.
TEST #2 Each caster was mounted to the load arm of a drum type test machine and 2000 lbs. of weight was applied. The test was conducted within the following parameters:
Surface Speed: 2.5 mph Surface Material: Smooth Steel Sustained Travel: Non-stop in one direction. Test to fail.
As the accompanying photographs show, The Durastar SIRIUS Wheel out performed the competition. The common orange wheel failed at 41 miles by debonding. The Durastar SIRIUS wheel traveled over 200 miles before the test was halted. It NEVER failed.
Overall, the Durastar SIRIUScaster line delivers a tough and rugged wheel that not only out performs competition, but delivers an immediate return on investment when considering all factors described.
