Aero-castors provide a clean,quiet and safe alternative to moving heavy loads. Minimal friction and omni-directional movement allow precise positioning in confined spaces. Aero-castors will not damage floors and expensive reinforcement is usually not necessary. As we use only basic pneumatic components, such as regulators and hoses, our products are reliable and operate in most environments.
The Aero-Castor PrincipleAll of our load moving products are based on the Aero-Castor Principle. Below is a brief look at how this system works.
Prior to inflation, the load is solidly supported on landing pads.
These pads protect the Aero-Castor’s torus bag from being crushed when the load is at rest.
When standard shop air is applied to the Aero-Castor, 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 slowly and 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.
