The Nolan Company recommends the use of its special ductile alloy cast wheels instead of pressed steel wheels. Nolan’s cast wheels are tougher, have a larger load capacity and last many times longer. Nolan’s wheels are available for replacement or OEM use.
Testing by an independent laboratory proved Nolan’s 7000 Series ductile alloy wheels superior to 5/16″ pressed steel wheels in straight running time, curve stresses and even drop tests. Tread and flange on all wheels conform to AREMA Standards.

The TS Series offers a heat-treated aluminum wheel in 5″ and 8″ diameters. These wheels are used on lighter maintenance-of-way equipment when weight and ease of handling are considerations. For very corrosive working conditions, 5″ wheels are available in Nolan’s special ductile alloy.

Wheel Insulation Kits are available for 1-15/16″ and 2-15/16″ size axles. The kit consists of an insulation sleeve that fits the taper of the axle, a filler washer and a steel washer—all held in place by the axle taper and a castle nut. (“TI” model wheels are insulated, “TN” model wheels are non-insulated.)
Insulation kits for 5″ and 8″ wheels are also available. The kit consists of a nylon bushing that insulates the axle.
