Air Caster Information
Whether your load is 500 or 500,000 pounds, Air Caster equipment combines simplicity of operation with tremendous versatility to provide smooth, easy, omni-directional movement at a very affordable price.
How Air Casters Work
||Prior to inflation, the load is solidly supported on landing pads. These pads protect the Air-Caster’s torus bag from being crushed when the load is at rest.|
||When air is applied to the Air-Caster, the torus bag inflates, creating a seal against the floor surface and raising the load.|
||When the pressure within the chamber is sufficient to offset the load’s weight, air evenly escapes between the flexible torus bag and the floor. The load is literally floated on a thin, nearly frictionless cushion of air, .003 to .005 inches (.08 to .13mm) thick.|
