Operating Speed & Maximum Safe Free Speed (MSFS)

To entirely fulfil the requirements of workplace safety the maximum safety r.p.m. indicated on the products must not be exceeded under any circumstances.

The optimal work r.p.m. for the brushing of work pieces is defined by peripheral speed and brush diameter. The optimal r.p.m. during operation is therefore often appreciably less than the safety r.p.m.

To guarantee your safety, please select the largest possible brush diameter that can be used on your driving device. Standard values for safe peripheral speeds are approx. 30-35 m/sec for brushes with crimped wires, 18-22 m/sec for brushes with synthetic filaments and plastic bonded fill materials.

For further recommendations of optimal work speeds and driving power,
please contact our technical service for assistance.
