Product Overview

The Base Casting - Permanent Cast is used in cart assembly that is part of the respiratory care system. It is mounted on the caster wheels, and these caster wheels balance the entire unit. It is made up of a 319 aluminum alloy, which is a 6% Si and 3.5% Cu alloy with maximum of 1.0% Fe. It has excellent casting and machining characteristics. The mechanical properties are good in both heat-treated (T5) and non-heat treated conditions. The 319-type alloys are used for castings of complicated shapes with different wall thicknesses. Most commonly, they are used for castings that are moderately highly stressed. Despite their specification, the usage of the secondary alloys for the production of automotive castings has a great perspective in the consideration of the most effective efforts to reduce prices of castings. The base casting is non-hexavalent chromium chemical conversion powder coated with a fine texture finish, it is protected against corrosion where low electrical resistance is required. This base casting Engstrom cart is being used in CARESCAPE™ R860, Engstrom, Engstrom Pro, Engstrom Carestation and many other respiratory care systems.
