Certain electrical transmission applications, e.g., rail systems, power generation, require increased electrical characteristics than our standard carbon graphite grades. We have developed specific carbon graphite grades that are capable of transmitting varying degrees of electrical current. Our proprietary mixes of carbon and metal graphite have unique performance characteristics particularly suited for dynamic electrical transmission applications. We also offer lead-free and ROHS-compliant grades to meet both your electrical and environmental requirements.
Below are the key products that are used within electrical transmission applications. However, this is not an exhaustive list and we are a custom manufacturer, so if you have any questions or needs outside of these products, please contact us directly.
Custom Components & Parts
We develop parts that are customized to each of our customer’s specific application requirements. Our unique technical knowledge and manufacturing expertise allows us to customize parts within our existing product line or as part of our new product development.
Our carbon graphite automotive brushes are used for both OEM and aftermarket applications, including light, medium and heavy duty vehicles, as well as motorcycle applications. We offer plain brushes or complete brush assemblies to meet your specific needs.
ARC™ Electrical Contacts
St. Marys Carbon Company offers a wide range of electrical contact materials. Some of the benefits of these materials include: high conductivity, low friction, self-cleaning and the ability to withstand extreme environmental conditions. Based on the type of material and the configuration, many contacts can be molded to size.
Our carbon graphite industrial brushes are used for both the OEM and aftermarket motor applications. This includes light and heavy duty equipment, power generation (e.g., turbines), rail systems, material handling equipment, elevators, appliances, power tools and a variety of other applications requiring electrical transmission.
