Brushes for DC motors

DC motor carbon brush Mersen

Carbon brushes for DC motor in process equipment: traction motors, lifting, rolling mills, winders…

Mersen offers a wide range of electrographitic brushes, particularly adapted to DC motors (of which globally renowned EG34D, EG8220, EG319P, AC137, 2192, CB86 grades).
