Carbon Brushes

Carbon brushes are used to transfer electrical current from a moving (usually rotating) to a stationary point within an electric circuit.

Important electrical components in motors and generators, Carbon brushes are made of carbon or graphite.

Carbon brushes have been more recently used to harness renewable electricity sources from both wind powered and hydro powered generators.

Minimum Carbon Brush order guide

Carbon Brush Size:

Small Carbon Brushes

Medium Carbon Brushes

Large Carbon Brushes

Carbon Brush Volume:

under 8cm3 under 20cm3 over 20cm3

Minimum Order Quantity:

250 100 50

How to calculate the Carbon Brush volume:

Volume of a brush is the product of its length, width, and height for example - 1.5cm × 1.7cm × 2cm = 5.1 cubic cm or 5.1cm3

A=Length - B=Width - C=Height

A x B x C = volume in cubic cm.
