Copper Center Wheel Brushes
Copper Center Wheel brushes are manufactured using a copper tube, brush filament and a steel ring or washer. The filament is placed evenly around the outside of a copper tube. The washer is placed over the filament and, using a punch press, the tube is then formed into a “U” shape around the washer. This secures the filament, which is then trimmed to the proper outside diameter.
Brass is recommended in non-sparking environments. Urethane Encapsulated are also available for wire.
Safety Requirements:Operators must, at all times, observe common safety practices, such as wearing goggles, keeping machine guards in place, observing all speed restrictions, wearing appropriate protective clothing and comply with ANS-B165.1 - 1979 "Safety Requirements For The Design, Care And Use Of Power Driven Brushing Tools."
Copper Center Wheel brushes are available with Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass (for non- sparking applications) Nylon, Abrasive Nylon Horse Hair and Tampico filaments.
Ideal for the following applications:
- thread cleaning
- edge blending and finishing
- cleaning and polishing
- removing rust, scale and carbon
- cleaning boiler tubes
- aerospace and nuclear applications
- cleaning molds, dies and extruder barrels
Copper Center Wheels can be used individually or mounted side-by-side for a wider brush face. For wire stripping devices, two brushes can be mounted and programmed to rotate in opposite directions within close proximity. No matter what the application, high-speed operation is necessary for most effective use.
