What do you mean by 'short time'.

I found that a standard automotive windshied washer pump will run a long time at 12 volts but at 24 volts the brushes get hot and break apart in a few seconds. At 18 volts they run OK and make a good fuel pump for a small flame thrower.

Otherwise there is no reason brushes cannot last thousands of hours at any voltage.

short time means between 2-6 months.

Scratch builder
Wrong spring pressure
excessive amps/sq. inch
comm out of round
wrong brush material

PWM controller pulsing at low frequency
