Today, let us discuss about the Tube brush or usually called as boiler tube cleaning brushes. The tube brush is made up of metal, nylon or abrasive nylon bristles. It is also known as the Brush Boiler. They are used for tubes, threads keyways, openings, etc. Heavy-duty design provides the most powerful brushing action and long service life. These brushes achieve maximum efficiency when completely chucked in handheld equipment and cullet-equipped drill presses.
For optimum protection and efficient soot removal, a boiler brush has to be sturdy and heat-resistant. They are also called as tube brushes or cylinder brushes. They are available in diameters as small as 1⁄8″ and as large as 2″, in a variety of materials and with long, versatile but durable handles.
Industrial brushes come in all shapes and sizes, so you have to decide how large your brush needs to be. You can always get it personalized if you need a specific custom length.
