Many Uses of Star Wheels and Solid Tyres

The likeliest place you will find star wheels is on a trailer – be it a tractor trailer or a travel trailer. The most common grades of high density polyethylene used in engineering are UHMWPE and HMWPE because they have excellent insulation properties, practically no moisture absorption and maintain their properties even at low temperatures. They are used widely in the food and packaging industries for guide rails, rollers, scraper blades, star wheels, feed worms, chute linings, etc.

The importance of star wheels in farm produce and the food and beverage industries cannot be overstated. In the beverage industry, bottle feed equipment are used extensively so that the liquids can be filled in the appropriate containers without any spillages, which helps in reducing the amount of wastage during the packing stage. In-feed star wheels, out-feed star wheels, center guides, feed worms and back guides are major components of bottle feed equipments. Since the pharmaceutical industry has extensive need to fill bottles of liquid medicine, star wheels are a critical component of bottle feed equipment.

On the other hand you are likelier to find solid tyres in antique cars and in carriage wheels. However, some designs of wheelchairs meant to help elderly people remain ambulatory indoors use solid tyres with an insert to prevent flats. This is because stability is a vital consideration and you don’t want the wheelchair to accidentally tip over. Solid tyres help make the wheelchair stable enough to prevent falls. This factor leads certain people to put in solid tyres instead of pneumatic ones in the two wheelers too.

Transporters and materials managers who use forklifts extensively also know that in specific conditions solid tyres are preferred over pneumatic and polyurethane ones. Solid forklift tires are great for indoor use or light outdoor use since they do not go flat or pop like the pneumatic ones. They are not recommended for long-term rough terrain use since they do not have an air cushion either. The greatest quality of solid tyres is their durability.
