Why ball upwards transfer units can not be used as ball downward?

Ball transfer units are divided to different types, like pressed metal series, machined heavy duty series, stainless steel series, plastic series, spring shock load series, ball downward series.

The purpose of design ball transfer unit is handling and transmit parcels, goods, cargo etc. So you can often see them in airport, factory facility.

Some one also wants to use them as ball caster considering on it's 360 degree orientations moving.

But, it must choose the special design ball downward models.

If there are salesman tell you choose normal cheap ball upward model to use as ball downward, just the loading capacity is half or lower, remember, that's wrong and you will get lose if using them.

Them are quite different on the sub-balls arrangement and inner design.

Here is a testing picture showing a upward ball transfer unit used as ball downward:
