Revvo Caster Introduces New TwinTech Solus from Colson Europe Line Medical Equipment Casters

The Revvo Caster Company, Inc., announces the introduction of its new TwinTech Solus casters. Available in five swivel and five total-lock swivel models, the new TwinTech Solus caster range is designed for high-technology medical equipment, displays, furniture, appliances, and for other applications requiring dependable performance combined with design style. A Colson Associate company, Revvo Caster introduces TwinTech Solus casters as part of its new line of medical equipment casters developed by Colson Castor Europe.

TwinTech Solus casters are constructed of lightweight, diecast aluminum and feature soft, streamlined contours to combine quality and comfort into an economical range of durable and attractive casters. They are engineered to swivel freely in all directions while reducing pushing effort necessary in demanding applications. Low-height and low-offset designs maximize stacking capacity and provide increased stability. The twin-wheel design is said to enhance maneuverability and precise tracking. Total lock models feature a fully-enclosed brake mechanism to avoid wear on the tires. The brake is activated by light pressure on a smooth-contoured pedal, manufactured from tough, reinforced thermoplastic for a low operating load and long service life. Both the wheel and swivel are locked simultaneously by positive engagement of two sets of teeth.

The new TwinTech Solus swivel casters offer load capacities ranging from 198 to 297 lbs. Wheel diameters include 3", 4" and 5" models with overall heights of 90mm, 120mm and 148mm respectively. Swivel radius for the swivel models are 63mm, 83mm and 105mm, depending on wheel diameter, and 67mm, 90mm, and 105mm for the total lock models. The TwinTech Solus features a precision needle roller bearing for low rolling resistance. Standard wheel materials include gray polyurethane and gray rubber. A variety of options are available including: "gold seal" washable casters, color finishes (White RAL 9000 is standard); electrically conductive tires, alternative fixing thread sizes, top plate fixing, black nylon tires, and a directional lock for the total lock models.
