To give engineers and buyers help specifying custom-made cylinder brushes, we have created an entire section of our website giving application specifics for a variety of brush materials, mounting styles and unique properties of the cylindrical brushes manufactured by Spiral Brushes.
Cylinder brushes are most commonly used for conveyor cleaning or wide face brushing of a product substrate on a production line. Spiral wound cylinder brushes are based on our strip brush technology, and are individually designed to meet each customer’s specifications.
Paddle wheel style conveyor cleaning brushes are designed into applications requiring less continuous contact between the brush and conveyor or a substrate. Paddle wheel type construction offers the capability for customers to replace their own refillable brush cores.
Cylindrical conveyor cleaning brushes can be filled with any of our selection of materials, including: steel wire, stainless steel wire, brass wire, bronze wire, nylon 6-6 or 6-12, abrasive nylon, polypropylene, tampico fiber, and other materials on request.
