Conveyer & Caster designs custom caster for pharmaceutical manufacturer to withstand immense heat

A pharmaceutical manufacturer needed to develop a cart for their autoclave that was not only entirely stainless steel, but also FDA compliant. Autoclaves are used in the pharmaceutical industry to surgically clean and disinfect hard-surfaced medical equipment by releasing pressurized steam that is approximately 270 degrees Fahrenheit. Initially, the wheels of the cart were unable to withstand the intense heat, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Together, Conveyer & Caster and the manufacturer designed and developed a caster suitable for heavy duty applications.
