Metal Grip Roller (MGR) and Metal Grip Coil (MGC) Brushes

Roller brushes are used in many industrial applications where continuous filament movement creates the proper brushing action. From cleaning conveyors to polishing fresh produce, roller brushes are effective in applying coatings or removing debris for varied surfaces and shapes.

Metal grip rollers are welded to a metal core and spiral wound. Wraps per foot determines the density of the brush.

Metal grip roller brushes provide a heavy duty service for many types of washing, waxing, cleaning and scrubbing operations. A metal grip strip brush is spirally wound around a shaft or core of which can be galvanized or stainless steel. We also can provide shafting for your brush that also is machined to fit most installations. We offer steel keyed or taper lock hubs, and filaments can be natural or synthetic.

Metal Grip Coils

Coil brushes are spiral wrapped just like metal grip rollers, but come without the attaching core or shaft. Collars, U-bolts, welds, and tension hold the coil brush to your shaft or core.

Coil brushes are a less expensive option to apply to an existing core, drum or shaft. Manufactured like a "slinky", these are often a great way to replace brushes that wear with frequency.

Wire Filament Spiral Brushes

For high abrasive applications, we offer spiral wrapped steel and stainless steel wire filaments. These are most often used in high temperature applications, or those that need aggressive scrubbing. Ranges in gauge of filament is .005"-.022". Call us for a quote and lead times on this special applications brush.
