About castors plain bearing
A plain bearing is the most common type of bearing used on castors. A castor with a plain bearing is a type of castor where the wheel centre actually doesn’t have any type of bearing. In most cases, the material of the wheel itself is used to reduce friction while moving. Plain bearing castors are mostly used on equipment and appliances that don’t have to move on a regular basis.
Castors with a plain bearing are relatively cheap and are capable of carrying heavy loads. Plain bearing castors are mostly made out of nylon, rubber or Vulkollan. So why choose a castor with a plain bearing?
- Plain bearings are suitable in liquid-lubricated environments where machinery or equipment can move at high speed, such as generators, centrifugal pumps, turbines, etc.
- Plain bearings are ideal for industries where impacts and vibrations van occur.
- If bearing and guiding tasks can be executed with low efforts, such as a transport cart, kitchen appliances or lifting tools, plain bearings are ideal.
