    Large Diameter Flex-Hone Optimizes Performance

    Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) has a long history of solving difficult finishing problems with brushing technology.

    As a full line manufacturer of honing tools, abrasive nylon brushes, deburring brushes, automotive brushes, power brushes, twisted-in-wire brushes and the Flex-Hone® Tool, they stand ready to assist clients in finding the best solution for finishing needs.

    BRM can help with finishing and deburring. The Flex-Hone® tool, also known as ball hones or the ball cylinder hone, is great for deburring, edge blending and surface finishing, while the tube brushes and other twisted-in-wire brushes are the perfect solutions for cleaning soot and carbon deposits from pipes and other metal components.

    APPLICATION IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

    In the oil and gas industry things break down. Industry challenges include: failing to perform ongoing maintenance on equipment can have severe consequences including reducing equipment service life, causing unplanned shutdowns and degrading performance.  Ongoing maintenance is required to remove rust, corrosion and other accumulated material from the inside diameter (ID) of valves, pumps, piping, diesel engines, motors, natural gas compressors, flow meters and other large bore equipment.  Often, this maintenance work is performed in the field under harsh conditions. 

    Large diameter Flex-Hone tools are the ideal solution because they can be run with virtually any rotating spindle, are self-centring, self-aligning to the bore and self-compensating for wear.

    The Flex-Hone tool is a resilient, flexible honing tool with a soft cutting action that provides a superior surface finish with a non-direction or crosshatched pattern. Whether it’s deburring a hole or blending an edge, removing corrosion or machining marks, using the tool results in increased product performance and longer product life. The Flex-Hone is designed for a variety of automotive, hydraulic, pneumatic and industrial applications in standard sizes as large as 36.”
