Stainless Steel Caster Applications
A large variety of uses exist whereby a caster with non corrosive or rust-proof capabilities is required. Stainless Steel casters are ideal for food processing facilities, breweries, wineries, hospitals, cleanrooms, and marinas (especially Grade 316). Common stainless caster usages include
pharmaceutical tables and carts, medical and laboratory equipment, hotel food carts, laundry carts, and food service carts.
In addition to grade 304 stainless casters, we also offer selections with Grade 316 stainless steel. Thanks to added molybdenum and nickel content, grade 316 is more corrosion resistant than 304 stainless steel. This makes 316 stainless steel casters ideal for applications exposed to chlorides like de-icing salts and saltwater, as well as harsh cleaning agents, and other corrosive and rust causing environments.
