Heavy-duty ball transfer units can be accessed easily for thorough cleaning or to replace internal ball components, according to the company. Their rework capability can extend product and service life and promote optimized performance over time in demanding applications. The ball transfer units are suitable for use in air cargo handling system, or they can be mounted on warehouse floors and other surfaces to enable movement of cargo and equipment. An alternative to wheel casters, the ball transfers feature solid steel machined housings and robust tops for maximum protection against impact damage; a self-cleaning slotted exit hole to filter large debris particles; and a low-profile, offering high-load capacity. Units incorporate 30-mm load balls, with load ratings up to 771 lb/unit. Other options include steel bearings and zinc-plated components; stainless bearings and zinc-plated components; or all-stainless bearings and components.
