Cortela Carbon is recognised Australia-wide as the only local manufacturer of quality aftermarket brush holders made to the appropriate IEC and NEMA standards. Our reputation for being able to solve the most difficult of brush holder problems is well earned. We are specialists in the design of constant force brush holders which enables us, in some cases, to achieve better results than those brushes initially designed for and installed in the machine.
Brush holders do not simply 'hold a brush'. These critical motor and generator components must provide accurate clearances for the brush, be mounted properly and accurately at the correct distance from the slip ring or commutator, and must allow free movement of the brush and spring installed. Brush holders are another highly technical and engineered product critical to machine performance. We understand the importance of "making it right' so your asset performs to its optimum.
Cortela Carbon also supplies a range of OEM brush holders for Mining, Traction, Transit and Industrial applications. Vintage or obsolete brush holders are easily reproduced by our skilled machinists and tool makers.
Send us your sample and we can make an exact replacement - or better still, we can redesign a modern replacement that will provide many more years of service.
Styles of brush holders we manufacture include:
