Single Flange Iron Crane Wheel Assemblies

Single flange wheels are suitable for use on underhung cranes and trolleys. The plain wheels may be used on light free running push cranes. For heavier service or longer spans, geared wheels should be used to drive the crane and keep it square on the runway.

The wheel treads are designed with the proper taper to operate on the lower flanges of standard beam sections. These wheels may be fitted with quill type roller bearings or ball bearings, either of which may be specified. Axle are machined all over, hollow bored for grease, and are fitted with a heavy nut. The axle collar has a milled cross flat which is to be set against a key or lug on the truck members to prevent the axle from turning or working loose.

Gears are of standard pitch with machine cut teeth. The pinion shaft is provided with a long keyway and spacing sleeve between the pinions for adjusting the width to fit various sizes of runway beam sections. This shaft is supported in plain journal bearings with holes for bolting to the truck members. The shaft extension is for coupling directly to a squaring shaft.

All bearings are provided with grease fittings for pressure lubrication.

The weights given below are for one pair of (two) wheels and the capacities are for each (one) wheel.

Horizontal dimensions given are for minimum, standard runway beams. If larger sections are used, add the difference in flange width to the dimension affected.
