In a cleaning application, friction is a major factor in creating static. Cleaning parts with a rotating brush can be been a sure way to increase the static charge.
Both the brush and the finished product are full of static charges. The static charges will ultimately clog the brush and re-depositing loose particles on the end product.
Static charges also create unsafe environments. It will lead up to a spark that can start a fire or explosion in a dust collection system.Natural fiber, such as Tampico, Horsehair, and Boars Hair are used by many brush manufactures and OEM machine builders to minimize static build-up caused by cleaning with a rotary brush. The natural fiber is limited by the bristle diameter. This is a big problem. Synthetic fibers have high flexibility and long life than natural fibers.
In order to produce the Conductive Nylon and Anti Static Nylon cleaning brushes, Bursten had built a new production line. Anti Static and Conductive Nylon Brushes are range from brushes that are truly static dissipaters to brushes that are static neutral. The Loose particles on the surface of a part and vacuumed away in a dust collector can be effectively brushed off. Anti Static and Conductive Nylon Brushes can completely remove re-depositing contaminates on the part and clogging of the brush.
The diameter option of Conductive Nylon and Anti Static Nylon is 0.1mm and 0.2mm. It is allowing Industrial Brush to match brush stiffness with the particle size of your contaminate. The Conductive Nylon and Anti Static Nylon stiffness and the various density of the brush can also be varied to suit the shape of the part you are cleaning.
Having a static problem that is frustrating you in your cleaning operation? Did your natural fibers brush breaking off and causing more problems than they are solving?
Bursten Company could be a real breakthrough in helping you clean your product with the help of Conductive Nylon or Anti Static Nylon brushes.
