E555-132-01 Moistening Brushes
***Currently Out of Stock*** - We are out of stock, and have been told the factory is, too. We are still accepting orders & will be updating this page once the brushes are in stock. We are hoping this delay is brief due to the critical role this part plays in the machine. Call us to see if there's any other way we can help keep your machine running until more brushes arrive: (770) 554-1187.
If the cart does not give free shipping, don't worry. We will refund the shipping.

We recommend removing the tank and brushes every week or two and cleaning the brushes with a mild dish-washing detergent like Dawn or Ivory. Avoid using detergents with moisturizing additives. Rinse well, and when putting the brushes back into the water tank, make sure the high points are facing in the same direction to the front of the tank. There should be a cotter pin holding the brushes together.
If after cleaning the brushes, you are unable to remove any dried glues, replace brushes. Good brushes work only when they are able to 'scratch' into the hardened dried glues so the water can penetrate and reactivate the adhesives on the tape. If the water does not penetrate the glues, the tape will slide and not stick to the carton surface.
If your packers have a hard time remembering to clean the brushes, have them remove them and rinse them every (or every other) time they fill the water bottle.
Brushes should be replaced every 3-5 years for best results.
