Delrin Bearing
Delrin® Bearing

Delrin, a DuPont engineered plastic, is extremely durable under a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions, as well as is corrosion resistent. Wheels with the Delrin bearings are well suited for applications where brine conditions, steam cleaning, or where excessive water or liquids are present. One piece or two piece Delrin bearing models are available (shown with spanner bushing).

Annular Ball Bearing
Annular Ball Bearing

Annular ball bearings are precision type bearings with machined, hardened raceways. This bearing is for applications where maximum rolling ease and quiet operation are needed and best suited for light to medium duty loads.

The bearing is pre-assembled, and the entire unit is mounted in the wheel.

Precision Sealed Ball Bearing
Precision Sealed Ball Bearing

Recommended for maximum rolling ease with no maintenance lubrication required, this quiet operating bearing is for medium duty to heavy duty loads. This bearing is available on all Endura Solid Elastomer and 2″ tread width non conductive Performa Rubber wheels and is standard on all Triumph wheels.

Now available for Performa hand truck wheels!

Pedestal Precision Ball Bearing
Pedestal Precision Ball Bearing

This bearing is perfect when excellent rolling ease and quiet operation are required for your application. There is no maintenance grease required.

The integrated spanner bushing makes installation easy. Now available in stainless steel, too!

colson casters plain and sleeve bearing
Plain & Sleeve Bearing

Plain and sleeve bearings provide a metal sleeve inserted in a wheel to rest directly on the axle. This option is only recommended when rolling ease is less critical.

Colson Casters Bronze Bearing
Bronze Bearing

The bronze bearing is durable under a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions and is corrosion resistant. It is highly recommended for high heat or wet applications (shown with spanner bushing).

colson casters roller bearing
Roller Bearing

The roller bearing is capable of carrying a greater load than the same size diameter ball bearing. It has a split outer race shell into which the roller assembly is inserted.

Standard Colson roller assembly features hardened steel rollers enclosed in a thermoplastic case on 1-1/2″ and 2″ tread width wheels. Metal cage roller bearings are available (Specify WB29) and are standard on wheels with tread widths of 2-1/2″ and larger. Combination seal/thrust retainer washers protect the bearing from dirt, water, and chemicals. They also help absorb thrust friction (Note: roller bearing must be used with hardened spanner bushing or hardened shaft).

colson casters torrington-style roller bearing
Torrington-Style Roller Bearing

Colson’s Torrington-style caged drawn cup bearings have a steel cage that provides inward retention of the needle rollers. This design provides maximum cage strength consistent with long service life. This bearing is available on 2″ tread width wheels only. (Note: Must be used with hardened spanner bushing or hardened shaft.)
