Wheelmakers – Marine Environment Wheel Assemblies

Marine Environment Wheel Assemblies

Marine environment wheel assemblies are ideal for heavy duty transport applications that require wheels that can operate while fully submerged in fresh or salt water. This style of wheel often referred to as a slip way wheel, is most commonly found in the vessel construction industry for transporting newly built vessels from land to sea & removal of vessels from sea to land for maintenance purposes. Richmond can also use this design philosophy to produce wire rope sheaves, guide rollers, and any typical industrial roller solution for demanding and highly corrosive semi & fully submerged applications.

Richmond Wheel & Castor Co has been manufacturing marine application wheel assemblies for fully and semi submerged applications and vessel transport/slipway applications for over 40 years. From light duty solutions for council and private yacht club dry docking solutions. To super heavy duty 1000 ton + capacity transport solutions for the biggest ship builders in the southern hemisphere. You can rely on our engineers experience and technical to design with you a product solution to suit your application, limitations and capacity requirements.
