It is very common in the woodworking industry to have planing or sanding machines with brushes.
There are several possibilities of fibers that are used for the manufacture of brushes for wood:
Carborundum, tampico, brass-plated steel, even a mixture of tampico with sandpaper inserts.
1.Carborundum is the trade name for silicon carbide crystals, used as an abrasive material in sandpaper, cutting tools and grinding wheels.
2.Brass steel, used to strongly attack wood and therefore for sanding.
3.Tampico, this fiber is used because it has a high degree of resistance to deformation and anti-static properties, as well as a high resistance to heat.
At Cepillos Industriales Sacema, we incorporate this material in some of our cylindrical brushes that are mounted on the belt cleaning system.
As you already know, our belt cleaner is a product adaptable to the different conveyor belt cleaning needs and therefore adaptable to each sector, especially the wood sector.
The last one we have manufactured with this material was intended to collect dust from conveyor belts without creating static electricity in the Wood Industry.
If you have any questions about this or any other brush, please do not hesitate to contact us.
