The outstanding feature of belt brushes is the flexibility of the belt backing, which allows the surface of the brush to adapt to almost any contour. As an example, they are used in cases where there is insufficient space for a brush with a rigid body and correspondingly flexible bristles. Belt brushes can be filled with synthetic or natural bristles ranging in nature from soft to hard. At the same time, however, they are also used as high resistance brushes. Belt brushes can be used horizontally, vertically or at an angle. They can also be ideally used as a transverse brushing system, e.g. for brushing to one side at right angles to the running direction of conveyor belts or similar.
