DualVee washdown wheels from Bishop-Wisecarver protect against the ingress of liquid, making them suitable for food and beverage applications, as well as high-speed water jet cutting machinery. Interchangeable with standard vee wheels, they feature an over-moulded metallic shield that deflects under the pressure of the washdown fluid. The soft outer rubber layer compresses against the wheel, forming a momentary seal that prevents ingress of the liquid. The inner seal keeps external fluids out of the wheel and retains the internal lubrication grease. Once the stream is directed away from the wheel, the deflected shield returns to its original position, allowing any residual fluid to drain out or be spun out.
