Oil and Gas
Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) provides the oil and gas industry with Flex-Hone® tools and industrial abrasive brushes for cleaning and servicing pipes, pumps, valves, hydraulic cylinders, and diesel engines. Gas and oilfield equipment such as valves and pumps require periodic maintenance to remove clay, silt, rust and corrosion. Self-centering and self-aligning to the bore, the Flex-Hone® tool from Brush Research uses a low-temperature, low-abrading process to clean these metal surfaces.
The Flex-Hone® can also be used to maintain critical tolerances in the hydraulic cylinders that are used in pumps at petrochemical plants and chemical processing facilities. For the big-bore engines that power pumps used in natural gas pipeline operations, the tool is used to deglaze, refinish and crosshatch cylinder walls during engine overhauls. For cleaning and deburring threads, BRM's abrasive nylon brushes are the right choice.
