Characteristics and maintenance methods of medical casters


LPHY is a professionalcasters manufacturer


The medical caster is a special caster with the characteristics of light operation, flexible steering, high elasticity, special ultra-quiet, wear-resistant, anti-winding and chemical resistance required by the hospital. Mainly divided into light-duty casters (chrome-plated bracket round plunger casters, chrome-plated bracket hollow rivet casters, chrome-plated bracket screw casters, chrome-plated bracket floor casters) metal bracket casters (screw type, hollow rivet type, plunger type, floor type); full Plastic bracket casters (movable/fixed, screw, screw stainless steel, plunger, bottom plate); medical two-wheel casters (economical screw, screw, movable/fixed, pull rod), central control casters and Medical Bag Cover Stacking Brake Casters,

Features of medical casters:

Medical casters must be bump-resistant, low-noise, complete in variety, and durable. Medical casters are composed of shock absorbers, plane bearings, movable rods, universal brackets, nylon shafts, rubber wheels and other components.

The structure is complete, the materials used are high-quality, and the durability requirements are met. The shock absorber is made of special materials and is coordinated with other parts to achieve low-noise universal rotation. There are various models of medical casters, which are suitable for all kinds of medical equipment.

Rolling resistance analysis of medical device casters. When the industrial caster moves or needs to be manipulated, the force must be transmitted to the industrial caster through the object and overcome a certain resistance. The amount of resistance depends on a number of factors: load, wheel diameter, material, and tread shape; industrial caster overhang; bearing type and size; and, of course, conditions at the industrial caster job site.

Therefore, it is very important to carefully coordinate all these factors so that they can be adapted to each other when choosing the right industrial caster.

Medical device casters are so-called movable casters whose structure allows a 360-degree horizontal rotation. Caster is a general term, including movable casters and fixed casters.

Fixed casters have no rotating structure and cannot be rotated horizontally, but only vertically. These two casters are generally used in combination. For example, the trolley is constructed with two fixed wheels at the front and two mobile medical casters at the rear, close to the push armrest.

Medical casters are widely used in industrial and daily necessities. So always pay attention to maintenance methods. How to overhaul medical casters?

Medical casters are used for the movement of heavy equipment, so the wheels of medical equipment casters generally use hard tread single wheels.

Such as nylon wheels, cast iron wheels, forged steel wheels, hard rubber wheels, polyurethane wheels, phenolic resin wheels are all ideal choices. Among them, forged steel wheels and polyurethane casters are especially suitable for special medical casters.

After inspecting and repairing the wheel, make sure the bolts and nuts are tight and use lock washers or lock nuts on all bolts if possible.

If the bolts are loose, tighten them immediately. If the wheel mounted on the bracket is loose, the wheel will be damaged or unable to turn.
