Fluid Power

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) provides Flex-Hone® tools and industrial abrasive brushes to pump manufacturers and makers of hydraulic cylinders. When small burrs in aluminum sleeves required costly and time-consuming manual deburring, a manufacturer of pneumatic-driven liquid pumps chose Flex-Hone® tools to speed operations and improve surface quality. After the metal sleeves are machined and drilled, the Flex-Hone® is mounted in a standard drill chuck and used to remove miniature burrs that could damage the liquid pump's O-rings.

Hydraulic cylinder manufacturers use the Flex-Hone® from Brush Research to create a plateau surface finish for optimum lubrication. By eliminating surface irregularities and smoothing peaks and valleys, the Flex-Hone® reduces oil consumption and supports the anti-wear performance of hydraulic oils. With its soft cutting action and low-temperature abrading process, this unique product is also used with metal hydraulic motor bodies. BRM's abrasive nylon brushes choices are the smart choice for cleaning and deburring machined threads.
