SINGLE USE AND REUSABLE ARC™
BRUSH SELECTION SYSTEM Use these simple steps in determining which wire brush will best serve your instrument cleaning needs.
PART 1: INSTRUMENT SPECIFICATIONS
A. What is the maximum length of the instrument(s) to be cleaned? Now add at least 2“ (or 5 cm) to that length so you have an adequate length to work with.
B. What is the inner diameter of the instrument? Now add at most 1/8“ (or 3mm) to determine the diameter of the bristle to ensure effective cleaning. The bristle diameter has to slightly exceed the inner tube diameter. Bristles that are too large will bend too much and not clean effectively.
PART 2: BRUSH SELECTION
Now that you have the basic information for your required brush, simply find the section in our catalogue that best corresponds to the overall length required as determined in Part A. Now select the brush that best corresponds to the diameter determined in Part B.
As a rule, if your present brush is 8“ (20.32 cm) in length and we only offer 10“ (25.40 cm) length with your required diameter, that is entirely acceptable.
In many cases, the BATRIK Brush will have more bristles on the brush. As an example, many 5 mm (0.19”) diameter brushes are only 1“ (2.5 cm) in length. At BATRIK, we have strived to provide the greatest amount of bristles to ensure very effective cleaning.
AT LAST… CUSTOMIZABLE WIRE BRUSHES!
A unique aspect of single-use ARCTMWire Brushes is that they can be customized to any length:
- Up to 2000 mm for Wire Brushes on plastic semi-rigid sheaths, rigid brushes from 5 to 20 mm in diameter.
- No limit in length for Wire Brushes on flexible plastic sheaths, flexible brushes from 2 to 5 mm in diameter.
ARCTM Wire Brushes are guaranteed to last longer than twisted wire and preserve the integrity of your valuable instruments.
