Bore Brushes are hand or machine-operated, large diameter blind hole brushes that are designed to clean both the wall and the bottom of a hole. They are used when a spiral brush is not strong enough or thick enough to provide sufficient abrasion.
HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE (HDPE): A thermoplastic polymer made from petroleum. It is one of the most versatile plastic materials around. HDPE plastic is used in a wide variety of applications, including plastic bottles, milk jugs, shampoo bottles, bleach bottles, cutting boards, and piping. It is known for its outstanding tensile strength and large strength-to-density ratio. HDPE plastic is high-impact resistance and has a high melting point.
Do you need to clean the insides or bottom of a cylindrical drum, barrel, or pipe? If so, you need a bore brush. And the best source for bore brushes is Gordon Brush®. In the bore brush main category, we have 3 child categories from you can choose: Large Nylon Bore Brushes; Small Nylon Bore Brushes; and Stainless Steel Bore Brushes.
In order to be able to clean inside the cylindrical drum, barrel, or pipe using anyone of the 24 different types of bore brushes, the bore brush needs to attach to a handle, ramrod, or fixture for insertion into the orifice. To accomplish this, the internal core of the bore brush is threaded. Gordon Brush® offers a choice of six different types of threads to attach the brush to the handle.
Depending on what type of barrel you are going to clean, will determine if you need a bore brush with PVC or HDPE core and the type of fill material. Gordon Brush® offers 4 types of fill material: Stainless Steel; Nylon; FDA-compliant Nylon; 6.12 FDA-compliant Nylon. The latter two types of fill material can be used in food service, pharmaceutical, laboratory, or any healthcare setting.
In addition to these options, one can choose from different overall lengths; brush lengths, brush diameter, or bristle diameter. Even with all of these choices, if you cannot find the bore brush needed for your specific project, the engineers at Gordon Brush® can customize a brush for you.
