Straight Strip brushes

Industrial Metal Channel Brushes

Straight strip brushes are the most common of the metal channel industrial brushes that Carolina Brush manufactures. Our straight strip brushes come in a multitude of sizes and densities. They can be formed into coil brushes, cup brushes, disc brushes (external and inverted), helixed/helical strips, arcs or curved industrial brushes. Strip brushes are very versatile and are designed with bristles that are attached to a U-shaped metal channel and to a center retaining wire.

Straight strips are used individually or in multiples and may be mounted on flat surfaces using aluminum and stainless steel holders that we supply as well.

Common Applications for Strip Brushes

Typical applications for straight strips include splash curtains, drag or sweep type conveyor cleaners, tensioning devices, static dissipating, paint booth and conveyor-side seals and product hold-down devices. They are also commonly used in deburring, cleaning, scrubbing, dusting, spreading liquids and powders, polishing, and static dissipation. Strip Brush Design Options Because of the versatility of Strip Brushes in their applications, there is no end to the different combinations between bristle materials with channels. Some of these can include:

  • Brass
