Spiral & Twisted in Wire Brushes

Also known as: Tube Brushes, Boiler Brushes or Spiral Brushes

Twisted in wire brushes customized by Carolina Brush are made to order in a full range of sizes from miniature to several inches in diameter. Twisted in wire brushes can be manufactured with features including grip handles, wire-loop handles or screw-on threaded pipe nipples depending on the application.

Tube and bottle brushes are available in customizable lengths and diameters, and are created for narrow, barrel-shaped applications. Wire bottle brushes can clean cylindrical items including pipes, bottles, tubes and other industrial components.

Spiral brushes can be customized to metal channel sizes ranging from approximately 3" to a little over 7". Channel materials include galvanized, stainless and aluminum with the same materials available for twisted stems. Twisted and spiral wire brushes can also be made either crimped or level to fit your specific application.

How Twisted Wire Brushes Are Made

Twisted wire brushes are made by taking a length of wire doubled over, placing bristle material in between the top and bottom of the doubled over wire, and twisting it up like a rubber band. The base wire, or the piece of wire that is twisted, is made of Galvanized Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, or Brass. All brushes for medical use are made with Stainless Steel. The bristle material can be natural, synthetic or metal. The type of material used will depend on your application.
