A few expamles of our brush sortiments…
This special brush for cleaning large stove pipes with thread and eye is manufactured with the manual craftsmanship of our workers. Brushes with four twisted wires can be produced either crosswise or inserted singly.
Twisted In Wire Brush
Out of the around 40 – 45 million brushes annually, approx. 90 %% are twisted brushes. A twisted brush consists of a twisted wire and an inserted fill material. This product can be processed from its original form into many finished articles for diverse application fields.
Twisted brushes are not only used for cleaning masonry, products or machine components. As this example of a conical brush with corrugated brass filling shows, the brushes are also used as filter units. This product is available in three sizes in order to filter foreign bodies from a water circuit.
Typical brush from Schellenberger. The brushes have been manufacture for a long time, e.g. pig bristles, polyamide, polypropylene or cast steel wire filling. They would be used on a building site to brush off the dirt out of the bore.
Tube or Bottle Brush
This brush (shown yellow in the picture) is a classic among brushes; it is available in any coloration and the soft fill material makes it suitable domestic and medical use. The twisted wire is encased in PET here so that it does not damage the object to be cleaned. The eye on the base of the brush make it easy to handle.
These brushes are sold as “eyebrow brushes” at Schellenberger. However, these are equally suitable for shaving brushes for dry shavers or as a comb for dolls. We manufacture these small brushes exclusively in sheet metal furnaces, allowing us to respond rapidly to current market realities.
Heating boiler brush - half-rounded
Almost everything is possible at Schellenberger Bürstenfabrik. This means we can also manufacture semi-round brushes in addition to round brushes for boilers, for instance. Manufacturing is also carried out in several steps coordinated to each other here. The brush is twisted round and cut to the external diameter. The semi-round cut is then made in a machine that has been developed by Schellenberger. This brush is suitable for both round tubes as well as flat areas.
We manufacture full steel shafts in different designs predominantly for boiler brushes. The metal handles are made from 9 mm galvanized steel and are manufactured fully automatically. Both the shape of the handle as well as the total length and the thread can be selected individually. The M10 outer thread is rolled on after aligning the wire. The length of the thread can also be freely selected.
Milking machine brush
Milking machine brushes are available in different versions oriented to the quality and hence cleaning effectiveness of the brushes. The cheapest form is the two-stage teat brush with simple wooden handle and fill material made from polyamide. We attach importance to the highest quality and use, instead of a wooden piece, a finished file handle reinforced by a metal ring. This guarantees a long life. The wooden handle can be turned and is hence designed for optimal use. Instead of the 2-stage filling, we use 3 stages in order to be able to reach every corner of the milking machine. Instead of cheap polyamide, we also offer a bristle filling in the center, which can absorb more dirt, especially at critical points, thanks to its surface volume. The uppermost part of the brush is cut at the corners in the cheapest brushes. We use matrices in order to be able to reproduce the oval shape.
Labaratory / Scientic Brushes
Cleaning brushes with front filling material (incurved or tied) are always called for if the end of the cylindrical opening is closed. The end of the brush can also clean the dirt at the end of the cannula or tube. This article represents a medical brush that is used for cleaning in the medical field.
Similar to the length adjustable, round packaging variant, this type of packaging can also be adjusted in respect to length and only is only bound to the diameter. Yet this packaging is closed by a screw mechanism and by sliding the inside into the counter-piece. Once the desired length is reached, the packaging can be locked into place by turning. That means the brush remains where you want to have it.
Model for architect or city planners
The model trees were still made from natural fibers until a few years ago. To protect the environment and species, we changed over to manufacturing the fill material from synthetic fibers. We manufacture model trees customized to length, diameter, type of cut and color. We have been manufacturing model trees for large model-making companies and artists for many years. Until a few years ago, these were still manufactured from coconut fiber and colored green in a second step. The color was banned in Germany after a change to the law. After this step, the fill material was replaced by polyamide fibers.
This long-hole eye grip is available in various lengths. The color can also be chosen freely, depending on the unit number of the order. These handles are frequently used in the medical sector in particular. This brush handle is used for tracheal cannula brushes as polyamide is easy to sterilize.
We make use of three standard handles made from beech. The file handles are painted and thus very durable. The handle can be attached to the brush to be either rotating or fixed. These handles are typically used for large brushes in mechanical cleaning. All handles have a through-hole allowing the brush to be hung on the eye above the handle.
This handle is ideally suitable for manual turning movements and is also made from locally sourced wood. The twisting-in process for the handle is fully automatic. It therefore fits perfectly in the eye and is suitable for any application. This standard handle will allow you to upgrade your article, while making handling much easier. This handle is used for bore hole brushes, for example.
Applicator / Primer brush
The manufacture of mini-woolen wipes or primer brushes has also developed from necessity. The woolen wipes are exotic in nature, as they are the only product to have one wire. Fastening the woolen head in the wire is an art unto itself and unfortunately not as easy as it looks. As a result, there are only two manufacturers who can manufacture these types of “brushes”. We make sure that the wool is of good quality and check this via regular quality inspections. Owing to the mass of orders, we can only accept orders from a volume above 50,000 units for this article. We shall be pleased to provide you with contacts for the sale of less than the above quantity.
Hair Curler brush
Plastic is finding increasing application in all areas. Curlers are meanwhile injection molded or stamped from plastic for cost reasons. We are one of the few companies in the world that still manufactures traditional curler brushes that are then fitted and sold by our customers.
Coffee maker brush
The brushes are also used in coffee machines, in order to extend the life of the parts installed in them and ensure cleanliness. This special brush (used inside a frother) is provided with an eye so as to fit perfectly in the device holder.
Burr brush / Abrasives / grinding brush / Carbon fiber
Our brushes with abrasive fill material are effective due to their silicon carbide basis. This fill material is available in grain sizes from 100 to 1000. The material is ideally suitable for metal working. As a result, these brushes are typically used for honing valve seats or cylinder heads.
Rim brush / Spoke brush
The fine metal filling and double bending help to ensure a large useful area for straight cleaning applications.
Heating Boiler Brush
Classic boiler brushes are distinguished by a round (cylindrical) cut, as the stove pipes are usually round. The fill material was made from cast steel wire in different diameters for many decades. Since the 1990s, polyamide (PA) has also been used partially. However, this can only be used in cooled pipes, as PA loses its shape retention and hence cleaning effect at 120° C. To be able to use the brush in a stove pipe, the brush is provided with a steel thread. The stove pipe can be cleaned with the corresponding full steel shaft (previously also a twisted wire shaft). In the examples below, you can see a boiler brush with 4 wires, filling material inserted crosswise and an M12 steel thread. The filling material inserted crosswise makes the filling denser, thereby attaining a better cleaning effect (even with larger diameters).
Gun brush / weapon brush
We have been manufacturing gun brushes since 1940. Although born “out of necessity”, the production of gun brushes has continued over the decades up to the present day. A galvanized twisted wire is normally always used. It is cheap, can be worked well and lasts a long time. What is more important – the gun brush is distinguished by the diameter adapted to the caliber of the gun. There is no guide value in regard to how large or small the gun brush should be to the caliber diameter. Every brush manufacturer has their own experience that they apply. The fill material in the brush also plays a major role here. Bristles (from China pigs) are typically used as a fill material. Bristles were a cheap and easy-to-process raw material in the days before synthetic fibers. The first plastics (PP, PA and PVC) were discovered for the brush industry in the 1980s. Bristles have been used since then (because this was always the case). Comparable cleaning results can meanwhile also be attained using polymers. Brass, bronze, polyamide, polypropylene, steel and wool are also used. Every gun owner has their own reason they use this brush precisely. The brushes are used for preliminary cleaning in order to remove powder residues. As a final step before oiling, either a woolen brush (woolen wipe) or felt plug are used to remove the fine residues. The quality of a gun brush depends crucially on the choice of fill material, the correct twisting technique, the density of the fill material and the correct cut to the diameter. We manufacture small series manually and large series fully automatically. We provide quality from Germany, which the German Army has successfully been using for decades too.
The production of brushes for technical, dentistry and medical applications has made Schellenberger Bürstenfabrik big. Still referred to as a “medical pharmaceutical brush maker”, we are currently specialized in the manufacture of soldering and drilling water brushes. The manual production of brushes is an art requiring tremendous skill and a great deal of expertise. A number of years ago, we decided to pursue the path of twisted brushes and are currently Europe’s largest manufacturer of twisted brushes.

Classic paintbrushes or artist brushes are no longer manufactured in our company. There are specialists for this such as the company “Zahn Pinsel” (www.zahn-pinsel.com), which is also based in Bechhofen in Bavaria.
Package for short brushes
This set packaging is versatile in use. The folding box with integrated individual holder can be used for 10 brushes. A typical application would be for interdental brushes, microbrushes or endoscope brushes for special components. This packaging can be provided with an initial closure seal, a banderole or labels so that the customer recognizes the content immediately. A batch or CE mark can also be attached.
Box for variations
This collective box is ideally suitable for keeping several brushes safe. The plastic packaging is adjustable in height over the entire length and can be closed by turning so as to prevent unintentional opening.
Box für single use
This plastic packaging is intended for the individual removal of your products. The closing mechanism is functional and can be closed again multiple times. The areas that can be divided off individually are what makes this packaging special. Each compartment can be detached from the complete packaging and thus taken to the site of use still packed.
The “ROSE Set” represents universal packaging for medium-sized brushes. The transparent lid lets you view the content. This allows your products to be presented optimally. A foam cube intended for this is provided as an inlay with the desired recesses, thus keeping your product optimally in place. Labeling is also possible as a label or insert inside the packaging.
tracheal cannulae brush
The tracheal cannula brush is indispensable both for the end user as well as for the hospital staff. Our products are distinguished by high resistance, filling density, high-quality materials and good handling. Only a minimum rate is subsidized for the brushes based on the Health Insurance Ordinance. This means that the brushes can no longer be manufactured in Germany. As we only manufacture in Germany and deliver from here, only a few dealers have decided to extend their product portfolio by a high-quality brush.
Test tube brush
Twisted brushes for test tubes are used for removing coarse dirt as part of the preliminary cleaning. These types of brushes are usually provided with a front filling and comprise synthetic fibers such as polyamide or polypropylene. The art of bending the front filling involves attaining a vertical “comb” as a result, with which the conical test tube can also be cleaned right to the bottom. The test tube brush can be moved easily with the eye on the base of the brush.
IMPORTANT: We do not supply ready-made toothbrushes, we only stamp handles supplied by the customer with the bristles. The manufacture of toothbrushes is an activity that arose in the 1980s. We only supply toothbrushes with very soft, fine filling material, as gums need to be protected especially among children, individuals wearing a brace or also after operations. As the major toothbrush manufacturers only supply in volumes on the scale of millions, we stamp the toothbrush handles provided from smallest volumes as low as 10,000 units. And of course we pack the finished products according to customer wishes.
We have been manufacturing interdental brushes since the 1980s. We develop, research and manufacture interdental brushes for a major European brand manufacturer. Our claim is to provide the best possible quality. That means we are continually researching with new materials so as to improve our technical expertise. We shall also be pleased to develop a new dental product for you. Whether with a handle or without; with holder or as an interchangeable system. We are the ideal partner if you are aiming to market your own series of interdental brushes.
Fitting brushes are used for deburring fittings in assembly technology. The brushes are made from the fill material “cast steel” and are distinguished by high filling strength. Our fitting brushes are not supplied with a plastic handle but with a wooden handle instead. This renewable raw material is an important element for us. We procure the beech wood from local forests and know that the trees will be replanted again. Decades of experience have allowed us to automate production and offer a correspondingly favorable price.
