Development of wire Smooth-Brush (SB) dry cleaning system replaces the most costly operations in the wire rod cleaning process, including acid and other wet chemicals, generating substantial cost savings, environmental benefits and improvement in productivity.

In rod cleaning applications, the SB incorporates revolutionary new technology which continuously uses liberated rod scale converted into unique micro-abrading pressure pads, with adjustable load at will, to effectively remove excess scale or rust from base material, making the product ideal for in-line dry coating/lubrication and direct drawing from mechanically descaled H/C and L/C rod (including 0.90%C).

The SB system is recommended for use where the surface finish is of great importance. The system offers consistency and can benefit demanding applications including plating wire, cold-heading wire and H/C wire where the ductility is a prime focus, particularly in production of spring wire, bead wire, PC strand wire, etc.

For drawn wire cleaning, the SB system features in-line smooth ultra-fine brushing, operating with virtually no speed limitation.

The system incorporates high density ultra-fine brush bristles that finely impact wire surfaces, effectively removing lubricant residue from base material, evacuating dispersed contaminants by moving wire exiting the unit clean of white-metal appearance, providing clean wire that is ideal for galvanising and metallic and plastic coating applications, including Al and Cu clad wire.

The system provides an extra-clean product by transversal high-speed ultra-fine brushing all around the wire circumference with automatically controlled brush pressure, adjustable at will, and ensures unchanged wire physical properties with no residual stress induced.
