Industrial brushes are often utilized to scour, buff, deburr, or coat different products and components in the manufacturing industry. Usually made of synthetic materials and natural fibers, these brushes can be applied to other purposes, including bakery and food processing.
Cocker-Weber Brush Company offers a broad spectrum of FDA-approved and food-grade industrial brushes that are safe and ideal for repetitive food contact.

Specifications and Materials Used
Before using industrial brushes for food processing and bakery, the materials used in the brushes should be FDA-approved so that no external substances from them could introduce toxins to food and other products for consumption. FDA-approved brushes entail that materials used are food-grade, and safe, and guarantee that repetitive food contact would not pose health threats or dangers to consumers.
Meanwhile, food-grade industrial brushes can be produced using different filaments like nylon, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW), and other similar synthetics. These materials are known for their durability, flexibility, and chemical resistance, which are ideal for food industry applications.
Brushes for Bakery and Food Processing
At Cocker-Weber Brush Company, we produce various types of brushes for different industrial purposes. For bakery and food processing, the best types to use are tampico and nylon brushes.
Made of rough fiber from Agave lechuguilla plant leaves, Tampico is a natural fiber that offers a wide range of features, including texture, length, and elasticity. In addition, this material is known for its high thermal and chemical resistance. It is also water-absorbent and keeps moisture effortlessly.
Aside from being flexible, synthetic materials like nylon offer several other benefits. First, this material is readily available and less expensive than others. Nylon is also highly resistant to abrasion and most chemicals. Finally, it can be developed and designed for various applications — from heavy to light brushing.
Also called rotary brushes, cylinder brushes are long, tubular brushes installed and operated in machines and conveyors. These brushes are often used to sort, position, and clean items during food processing.
