These popular brushes get used the most by commercial street sweepers. Wafer broom brushes have a segmented design that allows for easy replacement. That enhances their adaptability. There are many colors, styles, and material choices to choose from. Some get crafted of polypropylene bristles, which are thermoplastic polymer, like plastic.
At Smith Equipment we make wafer brushes for almost every brand and sweeper model. There are a few different kinds of wafer brooms to choose from too. Some are wafer brooms that are flat, and the convoluted. You also have polypropylene(plastic) and metal filament to choose from. As well as the mixture of the two which creates a hybrid broom. ‘Poly’ can be best for surfaces that metal would scratch. Runway cleaning would need ‘poly’ as metal fragments could not remain behind on. This material is recyclable as well. 100% metal filament can be best for jobs that need more cutting power and that can take a more abrasive cleaning. The third choice is a mix of both. 50% polypropylene (plastic) bristles and 50% wire bristles. This can be for road resurfacing and construction.
To use the wafer brooms, you have to have the proper sweeper attachment to your vehicle. Depending on the attachment you have, you will have amounts of wafer brooms needed to fit. Let’s say that you have a Bobcat – 48″ Angle Broom Sweeper Attachment. You will pick the filament: metal or plastic. Then you have the choice between 28 flat or 24 convoluted wafer brushes.
