APT Packet System for Bristle Brushes

THE APT PACKET SYSTEM is designed to save you time and money by making it easier and faster than ever to refurbish and replace your wide-face brushes.

The brush is assembled in segments (packets) that interlock, making it possible to create a wide-face brush in just the size, radius, and length you need.

All brush segments are delivered dynamically balanced and numbered for immediate installation and use.

Replace & refurbish brushes faster than ever before

  • . Save on replacement cost
  • . Streamline shipping and delivery logistics
  • . Receive refurbished brushes faster
  • . Re-build brushes in-house or at your local machine shop

You may not believe it but our welded package system was invented 20 years ago as a development of common spiral brushes with twin tape mounting.

  • . Each fill length of a roller brush needed can be divided in a corresponding number of single, compact segments, called packages, that are coiled helixes.
  • . What we produce are light and easy-to-handle packages with a constant, high density which facilitates and accelerates the refilling of a brush core or shaft carried out by yourself
  • . The twin tape mounting is designed as a concave backing system – as shown below – where the coil widths (WB) range between 5.4 mm to 10 mm. The single coils are spot-welded together without damage to the fill material
  • . The bilateral helix ends finish as “carrier noses” that grant a safe driving among the packages and care for a regular surface structure from one segment to the other i.e. no gaps will show up at the segment joints
  • . The welded package system is not only easy to mount but it also makes you independent of any transportation of the core to the supplier for refilling, packing, delivery times, etc. and helps you out of emergency situations
  • . The stock of replacement cores can be reduced to the minimum.
  • . Segments damaged by abrasion due to strip edges, strip joints or strip advance, etc. can be exchanged whereas the non-used brush packages will stay on the brush core or will be mounted together. This means of course an increase of the lifetime limits.

Technical Details

Technical Details

In order to select the best roller brush construction for your purposes we offer the following essential hints:

  • . Light- or heavy-duty
  • . Operation (i.e. required brushing effect)
  • . Immersion depth
  • . Fill density
  • . Surface or rotational brush speed
  • . Forward feed speed of the workpieces
  • . Dry or wet operation
  • . Low, medium or high temperature
  • . Normal or aggressive
  • . Medium
  • . Required space
  • . Correct relation of the brush dimensions (dia.: length/mode of operation) and weight limit.

Light-duty operations

E.g. washing, dusting, polishing, etc.

Heavy-duty operations

E.g. roughening, de-polishing or deadening, deburring of metallic surfaces, removal of residues of sticky, thick or wet material, cement, coal or sand, etc.

Technical Details Tab

Immersion Depth (ET)

An effective brushing result can be obtained with a slight immersion depth as the brush works correctly with the bristle or wire ends and thus guarantees an even abrasion of the fill material. If the pressure against the workpiece e.g. the immersion depth is excessive the fill material will wear and break very quickly. In order to avoid this situation, we recommend a precisely controlled brush adjustment against the limit stop as essential condition for an optimum immersion depth. The electricity absorption of an idle running serves as the basis. The total electricity absorption is computed using the definition of the immersion depth (pressing on of the brush). We recommend an ongoing control based on the difference electricity absorption.

Technical Details Tab

Relationship between brush diameter and length (face width)

The deflection ( “ fm“ ) will be influenced by the following declarations of value: weight of the core and the filling of the brush, distance of bearings, core material and section modulus (depending of cross section of the core). The deflection definite the stability (critical speed) of the rotating roller brush.

Technical Details Tab

Circumferential and rotational speed / forward feed

These characteristics can only be fixed in relation to the desired brush construction and the working conditions in the customer’s line.

Drive capacity

The drive capacity for roller brushes depends on several conditions and therefore can only be fixed according to all essential data. Please consider the following factors:

Weight: can be influenced by the diameter, length, roller core construction, fixing device and fill material.

Pressure against workpiece: the smaller the immersion depth of the fill material, the lower the drive capacity required.

Fill material: using soft fill materials means a lower resistance whereas a harder, more aggressive fill material requires a higher drive capacity. Our diagram shows typical standard values for the drive capacity for a given diameter of 300 mm.

Spraying

The functions and effects of spraying are very important: Incorrect spraying can cause brush damage or catastrophic failure. The spraying system should be checked carefully.

Purpose of spraying:

  • . Removal of frictional heat produced at the contact point of brush roll and strip.
  • . Removal of particles dispersed from the strip by brushing.
  • . Removal of mill oils present on the incoming materials.

Way of spraying:

In order to satisfy the above purposes it is important that ” spraying liquid shall be continuously and uniformly directed into the contact point of strip and brush roll “. The following points are absolutely necessary conditions. Improper spraying contributes to many brush failures.

  • . Be sure to spray from the direction the brush is rotating. When the solution is sprayed from the entry into the nip of the brush, it is slung from the nip carrying away the solution, brushing debris, and cooling the bristles. This is not achieved when the spray is directed to the wrong side of the brush engagement.
  • . Never spray from both sides of brush roll: as this reduces the efficiency of the cooling and cleaning caused by the solution flow.
  • . Never spray to the centre of contact point. when brush roll contacts with strip, its bristles are deflected by about 20mm to 50mm. There fore, the sprayed liquid should applied 10-25 degrees before the con tact point of the strip..
  • . As shown , one of the most important factors is the point to be sprayed and the spraying angle shall be adjusted accordingly
  • . The spray angle should be set to the proper position for the brush in its engaged position. Do not adjust the spray angle to the brushes raised position as it will be in the wrong position when the brush is engaged.

Brush position control.

Brush position control should be determined by amp draw from the drive motor. Determine the correct amp draw using the following procedure.:

1. Turn on the brush roll without strip material contact, record the power consumption rate and turn off the brush roll

2. Move the brush to just make contact with the strip without deflecting the bristles (only contact without bristles bending).

3. Check to be certain that the brush is perfectly level with the strip to be certain the brush contact is even from one end to the other.

4. Increase the brush engagement and additional 5 mm in depth.

5. Check again to be certain that the brush has traveled perfectly level to the strip and the engagement is the same from side to side on the strip. This will check for backlash in the adjustment system.

6. Start the brush drive and record the amp draw with the strip engaged.

7. The engaged amp draw minus the free amp draw divided by the strip width will be the amp draw per inch or mm of strip. This can be a baseline setting for any strip width. There may be a need to adjust this amount under certain conditions such as a brush which is near minimum diameter may require a slight decrease in amp draw per inch or mm based on the smaller diameter and moment of inertia. Smaller diameters require less torque.

Trimming and total and partial repair/recovering:

If brush roll is working at specified amp draw and the bristles don’t touch the strip surface in the center, the brush will require dressing. The brush can be dressed with some standard equipment or sent to your authorized distributor.

When the bristles of brush roll are totally worn, (5-10 mm. length from the metallic plates) it is necessary to replace all of the brush segments.

Remove the brush from the line.

Important Notice: We recommend a complete shaft inspection and check for runout between centers before installing new brush segments each time. In case of excessive runout or dimensional issues, repair and certify that the shaft is dynamic balanced at G-2.5.

Working, Handling and Storage recommendations:

Working:

  • . Never stop the brush in contact with the strip or back roll : bristles will be permanently deformed and damaged
  • . Never stop the line in contact with the brush roll (even in wet conditions) and never stop the brush roll spraying system: synthetic bristles can melt if heat from friction causes them to over heat.

Handling:

  • . Never pick up the brush roll by the bristles
  • . Always pick up the brush roll by the shafts necks
  • . Cover and protect the shaft necks before picking up the roll

Storage and/or Shipment:

  • . Nothing should touch the brush roll bristles
  • . Cover the brush with a plastic or paper
  • . Always pick up the brush roll by the shafts necks
  • . Protect the metallic shaft necks with a anticorrosion oil and cover with an anti-static protection
  • . If shipment is required, wrap the brush roll and use a closed wood box or similar protection (remember that inside of the box nothing should touch the brush roll bristles)

Important Notice: All statements, technical information and recommendations contained herein are based on tests we believe to be reliable, but the accuracy or completeness thereof is not guaranteed, and the following is made in lieu of all warranties expressed or implied: Sellers and manufactures only obligation shall be to replace such quantity of the product proved to be defective. Neither seller nor manufacturer shall be liable for any injury, loss or damage, direct or consequential, arising out of the use of or inability to use this product.

Applications

Applications

Metal surfaces must be cleaned before being processed in the finishing lines in the primary metal industry. This cleaning process is very important to guarantee a consistent annealing and galvanized coating process of metallic coils.

The common practice is use a chemical and brushing process. The coil surface is treated with alkaline and/or electrolytic alkaline cleaning systems and mechanical brushing in order to remove the maximum possible amount of metallic fines and oils from coil surfaces.

During the process, a hot chemical solution and electrolytic ionization separate the oils and metallic particles from the coil surface and the brushes remove it mechanically.

This combination of chemical and mechanical process is the best system to clean the coils surfaces, but today the customers are pushing to improve cleaning and increase line speed in existing or in new cleaning equipment.

The problem is that the conventional cleaning sections or lines have a big limitations to their cleaning performance.

Current lines configurations do not have free space to add new degreasing, electrolytic or brushing units and the costs for these line modifications are very expensive and the production cost per ton will increase proportionally with the addition of this new equipment.

Effective Cleaning:

Cleaning with lath brushes, a long lifetime will be achieved. In addition, pollution will be reduced by dry-cleaning with extraction function. The brush filament contains many elastic wire tips. The wire can make the rollers clean without changing the surface roughness, such as filaments with abrasive grain.

Special brushes for cleaning of work and support rolls at the same time:

This brush consists of an aluminum core with dovetail grooves and inserted cleaning strips, as well with lateral sealing strips if required. Dirt will be removed by special slots between the cleaning and sealing strips. Therefore, the aluminum core equips two bores at the bottom for connection with the extraction system.

Rolling Mills:

These high density brushes were constructed for special brushing machines in order to work at extreme conditions and to obtain an intensive brushing effect – hence the name.

The intensive results are due to specially ground brush surface and the highly precise production process.

We also manufacture cores with an inside floating system on request and offer a perfect brush concentricity due to our balancing to standard G 2.5, according to ISO 1940.

We also might point out that in many fields of strip production the intensive brushing effect is a necessity to obtain a surface quality standard required by the manufacturing industry.

Application Purposes:

APT’s abrasive roller brushes also offer a considerable cost-performance ratio in particular when applied in:

  • . Pickling-annealing lines for hot rolled stainless steel strips to support descaling and reduction of the depth of roughness.
  • . Electrolytic processing lines at the end of the lines as “polishers.”

Aluminum Rolling Mills:

Applying our brushes on hot-rolled strip surfaces free of striation are an important quality requirement of the manufacturing industry, regarding the grade of cold-rolled strips. In the cleaning process of working rolls in aluminum hot rolling mills, normally oscillating roller brushes are used for removal of the alum num-oxide layer, which was built during the rolling process. A slight and even particle coating must remain on the strip.

We optimized the construction of our roller brushes and adapted them exactly to the working conditions in rolling stands i.e.

  • . The corresponding cleaning devices
  • . The rolling emulsion used
  • . The surface quality of the working rolls.

Our brushes have kept up perfectly with these complex tasks in various rolling mills in Germany and USA for decades due to continuous development.

Brush qualities:

  • . High fill density
  • . A surface perfectly trimmed and ground for concentricity or, if required, a ground surface trim either convex or concave.
  • . Electro-dynamically balancing, as per the required rotation speed limit, balancing grade G 2,5 according to ISO 1940.

Fill qualities:

According to the working conditions in the mill we offer different:

  • . Steel wire qualities
  • . Stainless steel wires
  • . Abrasive bristles with various grit sizes

Cold Rolling Stands:

In cold rolling mills the operators normally use roller brushes with a soft synthetic fill material for cleaning processes:

  • . removal of very fine aluminum particles from deflection and measuring rolls, working or support rolls.

Furthermore our brushes are applied for surface treatment of strips and sheets, for instance:

  • . For de-polishing or dulling (e.g. decorative surfaces or litho-quality)
  • . For roughening before coating

Faq Tab Bristle Brushes
The “tips” of the brush do the work consequently, with only a light pressure of 1 to 2.5 mm.

10 Factors for good brushing
The bristles of a brushing roll have two main functions:

  • . They pass on the impact strength to the bristle tip
  • . The contact / friction on the metal surface

By optimizing these functions the working capacity of the brush improves.

________________________

1. Filaments:
Filaments are selected according to the required brush applications:

  • . To clean sensitive oily surfaces, ultra fine filaments are used
  • . For thick sheet stripping / descaling, it is necessary to increase the brush strength/stiffness, very thick filaments are used
  • . Different materials are used according to the various chemical solutions and temperatures in which the brush will be used

2. Abrasive Charges:

Filaments can contain several abrasive powders of different grain in order to increase the cleaning and grinding capacity of the coil material.

3. Size and Geometry of the bristles:

Bristles can be formed in fine or coarse sizes in order to increase or reduce the impact on the sheet and grip of the material.

4. Length of Bristles:

The ideal length should be between 1-2” according to the application and the maximum acceptable diameter of the brush equipment.

5. Brush External Diameter:

  • . The brush external diameter affects the cleaning capacity
  • . The impact strength of the bristles depends on the circumferential speed of the roll surface
  • . The grip capacity depends on the frictional pressure at each turn of the roll
  • . This increases as the diameter increases and contains more bristles per sq. in.

It is important to bear in mind that the external diameter of the brush is mostly limited by the length of the bristles and the brushing equipment.

6. Brush Rotation Speed:

A minimum of 750 rpm and a maximum of 1000 rpm is recommended.

7. Density of the Bristles on the surface:

  • . High density improves the cleaning capacity and the brush service life
  • . Does not allow water flow between bristles and often get damaged by lack of cooling and by excess of dirt
  • . Brushes get damaged because of these reasons

8. Binding – distribution of Bristles:

Bristles should be distributed evenly on the brush surface. The configuration must allow the flow of water between the bristles for them to cool adequately and to facilitate the outlet of dirt and the cleanliness of bristles using the centrifugal force. Grouped bristle configuration in tufts is very effective because it improves bristle impact strength and it allows water to flow between bristles avoiding damage.

9. Brush adjustment on sheet metal:

This must be selected for each type of brush. On average, brushes have to be adjusted between 1-3 mm depth in relation to the sheet surface. It is advisable that these positions should be controlled automatically by the brush equipment.

10. To sprinkle water on the brushes:

Sprinkling water on the synthetic brush bristles is necessary. The main objective is to avoid heating generated by the friction of bristles against the metal – especially if bristles contain abrasive powder -, but it also allows the transfer of dirt or metal residues from the plate surface and keeps brush bristles clean. Furthermore, the cleaning effect can be increased by degreasing alkaline solutions sprinkled with water.
