Wastewater management consists of multiple steps that treat wastewater to appropriate levels for reintroduction to the surrounding environment. From screening and pumping to filtration and disinfection, each step requires the use of specialized equipment to process and treat the wastewater. Wastewater management brushes are an essential piece of equipment in many stages of the wastewater management process, and they come in a variety of types dependent upon the different treatment stages.

At Cocker-Weber Brush Company, we have been a leading manufacturer of industrial brushes for over a century. With a focus on innovation and quality, we can find the ideal solution to optimize the processes in your wastewater management facility.

  • Wastewater brushes

At Cocker-Weber, we supply the following brush types that are suitable for waste management applications:

Tufted Strip Brushes – 5′ Long Strip Brushes

Tufted strip brushes are corrosion resistant and work well in areas with restricted movement or that lack a power source. They feature plastic bases that contain holes for holding the bristles. Depending on your needs, staples, wires, or epoxies affix the bristles to the base. The simple design of these brushes allows for additional customization to meet the needs of different applications.

Strip brushes enable thorough sealing, cleaning, and surfacing, and facilities often use them to protect and clean machinery. They can be designed to be conductive or non-conductive to fit the specific needs of the application.

Custom Brushes

Some applications may require custom brushes to meet unique specifications. Cocker-Weber has over 130 years of experience in the manufacturing and distribution of custom brushes to suit the needs of nearly any application. If your wastewater project requires brushes of a specific type, construction method, or trim shape, Cocker-Weber’s manufacturing capabilities enable them to custom-design a unique brush solution to meet quality, budgetary, and performance specifications of all types.

Spiral Round Brushes

Spiral round brushes are a type of cylinder brush. These brushes help sort, clean, and position items throughout the processing stages. Spiral round brushes are ideal for high-speed applications to remove sticky or dried accumulations in wastewater management processes. They’re capable of performing sweeping and scrubbing operations at the same time for maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
