Cylindrical Brush

A cylindrical brush is a roller or brush in the shape of a cylinder.

It is always defined by a cylindrical base, in most cases made of plastic material, which is supported on a shaft, and filaments are tufted up to a certain diameter.

We manufacture made-to-measure cylindrical brushes, fully definable and customisable by the customer: total length, outer diameter of the body and shaft, material of the base and filaments, as well as the arrangement and size of the tufts.

    Description

    The cylindrical brush is a dynamic brush, which rotates externally driven by a motor or driven by a transmission, to carry out an efficient job on the surface on which it works.

    Cylindrical brushes are, together with strip brushes, among the most widely used for their versatility and performance, in industrial processes and as a drag in sweeping machines.

    The industrial cylindrical brush can be designed in multiple distributions and arrangements of the filament tufts, as it can have a cylindrical or helical shape, with relief to the left, to the right or perpendicular to the left, to the right or perpendicular to the right.
    left, right or perpendicular to it, or simple depending on the customisation required.

    The twist, the flexibility of the filaments and the distribution of the tufts of the cylindrical brush give it its exceptional performance.

    It should also be noted that they are used in all types of industries: mining, food, fruit, wood, glass and many others. They perform functions such as belt cleaning, polishing, deburring or dust cleaning. They can also be used in glass washing machines, for the gentle movement of parts or glue applications, among other applications.

    Cylindrical brushes can be made from plastic filaments, metal wires or natural fibres like most industrial brushes.

    In addition to customised one-piece brushes, you can find a variety of industrial cylindrical brushes known as the Module System. This consists of forming a brush by means of modules or small brush rings of 100 mm in length which, thanks to their serrated edges, fit perfectly into each other. This makes it possible to form a brush of the desired length and makes the replacement of the brushes much easier.

    If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Types

    There are two main types of cylindrical brushes:

    On the one hand, cylindrical brushes of a given length, in one or several pieces, which are made exactly to the length required in each case.

    And on the other hand, modular brushes that are defined based on modules that mesh with each other, either toothed (plus Zack) or tongue and groove (low Zack), where the total length is obtained by adding up the lengths of all the modules that are assembled

    Cylindrical brushes of specified lengths. These are industrial cylindrical brushes that are made to measure, starting from a pipe or solid at the desired length, in one or as many pieces as desired.

    Modular cylindrical brushes. We have two families of cylindrical brushes in modules. The standard 100 mm toothed modules (PLUS ZACK), which incorporate caps to make traction and easy replacement, and the 250 mm LOW ZACK modules with tongue and groove plugs.

    Plus-Zack toothed modules

    These versions of brushes by toothed modules are very advantageous when you have a large number of brushes or when you need to replace only part of the brushes.

    Characteristics

    The cylinder brush is integrated to other solutions:

    • Belt cleaner, integrating all components
    • Mini roller conveyor, putting many of the mini cylinder brush in a C-guide to have a path of rollers for delicate objects.
    • Fruit and Vegetable Brushes.
    • Central brushes for sweeping and scrubbing machines.
    • Comfort brush for cows, that is, the cow scratcher.

    The Cylinder Brush can be made from plastic filaments, metal wires, or natural fibres like most industrial brushes.

     

    FAQs

    What is the difference between a normal cylindrical brush and plus-zack and low-zack toothed modules?

    There is not much difference in using a solid or a pipe as the basis for manufacturing the cylindrical brushes as it is more of a manufacturing resource. For small body sizes, from 40 to 90 mm, solid brushes are usually used as there are no pipes available, whereas from 90 mm onwards, pipes are usually used.
    Pipes are more economical as they are hollow and allow greater lengths to be reached. To make the reduction to the shaft, a brush on a pipe screws some bushes on both ends, while brushes on a solid have to drill an inner hole, which crosses the entire brush, to the diameter of the shaft, which makes it impossible for large lengths.

    Can I use any base to make the cylindrical brushes?

    In theory yes, any size of pipe or solid bar can be used as a base for making brushes, but in practice there are some limitations because of the stockings.
    We must have enough material to be able to drill and tufts. At least 10 mm, so you have to take into account that the body diameter will be at least the shaft diameter + 20 mm.
    Other limitations come in the extreme measures, underneath it is very complicated to make brushes with less than 40 mm body diameter. At the top, in the maximum measurements it depends on the internal size for the grip.

    How is a cylindrical brush attached to the shaft?

    It is important to fix the brush to its shaft, so that it pulls when working and does not turn madly. The most common methods are by means of an elastic pin, which completely crosses the shaft and the body of the brush, or by means of a threaded pin, which presses against the shaft.
    Both the normal cylindrical brushes and the economy toothed brushes come unprepared, unless requested by the customer, so that the person who installs it does so in the best way they want. The PLUS-ZACK module brushes have built-in clamping studs.
