Grounding brush

Aegis SGR conductive microfiber shaft grounding brush protects bearings from electrical damage for life of motor.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Safely channels harmful shaft current away from motor bearings to ground and eliminates frosting, pitting, fusion craters, fluting, noise, and motor failure
  • Brush slides over either end of motor shaft and locks in place with screw-on mounting brackets
  • Works with almost no friction or wear, is maintenance-free, and unaffected by dirt and grease
  • Fits ac motors ranging from 1 to 1,500 hp with shaft diameters of 0.311 in. and greater
