Strip Brushes perform a multitude of functions in a production environment. Strip brushes feature a formable metal structural element, the channel base, and brush fill that can be varied as to material type, trim length, density, and flexibility. A Strip Brush can function as a brush seal on a piece of equipment, a flexible shield against mist, dust, light, heat, or intrusion into a point of operation. Mounted to contact a conveyed product, a Strip Brush can function as a product hold-down, a static reduction device, a detector of holes in insulating coatings, an applicator of wet or dry coatings or a duster to remove loose material. Mounted on a conveyor line, a Strip Brush can redirect or stabilize a moving product or sweep away loose debris. Inserted into a paddle wheel style cylinder assembly, strip brushes allow conveyor cleaning brush refills to be performed in-house. Wrapped around an auger-shaft or added to the flights of an auger screw, a strip brush becomes a flexible flight capable of moving product without damage.

 

We can mix materials to accomplish multiple functions, such as nylon and fine brass/bronze wire to dust and reduce static. We can insert other materials, such as thin metal foil, Teflon® fabric, or EPDM rubber sheeting, into the center of a strip brush to provide a solid barrier in addition to the brushing action. We will work with you to design and provide the exact brush required for each application challenge.
