Grounding or earthing applications pose a mix of issues, due to varying currents and speeds, in conjunction with environmental conditions which can cause high wear rates in traditional materials.
To remove induced and static electrical currents which can cause considerable damage, we have a range of low resistance materials able to carry high currents with low metallic contents which allow us to offer greater lubrication. The result of these low coefficients of friction allows our materials to operate over a wide range of speeds with minimal wear, we can further tailor our grades with various additives or impregnations to protect against unfavourable environmental conditions.
Typical Grounding Brush Applications:
- Axle earthing
- Wind turbines
- Electric motors and generators
- Propellor shafts
