ABOUT RETRACTABLE HOSE REELS

Hose reels provide an accessible source of fluids or air within a facility and are ideal for rugged indoor and outdoor use. From bulk fluid pumping to precise dispensing, heavy-duty retractable reels work with various substances like lubricating grease, synthetic-based oils, petroleum, water, and more. 

They are commonly found in warehouses or fire emergency stations and are made with high-grade materials for robust construction. Hose reels are made with heavy-duty construction and high-grade materials such as metal. 

Depending on the way wires are rewound, there are different types of hose reels, such as electric, hydraulic, or spring-type, depending on the rewinding method.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD HOSE REEL?

A good hose reel combines durability, performance, and value. It features a robust frame, and appropriate hose length and size. The spring, latch, and swivel form the core of the reel, with a new spring design that eases the pull-down process, especially for the last 3m (10ft). The spring latch retracts the hose, making it effortless to operate. A durable full-flow swivel maximises material flow with minimal pressure drop.

Other important characteristics include:

An improved long-life spring that reduces user fatigue

Compact pedestal and spool accommodating 10-20 metres (35-65 foot) hose capacity

Improved latch design preventing lock-outs at full hose extension

Durable, corrosion-resistant finish available in multiple colours

Retractable Hose Reel Features

Drum pumps come in different types, but the basic operating principles are similar.

Purchasing the right hose reel depends on the type of fluid or air you're working with, the volume of transfer required, and the environmental conditions of your workspace. Consider hose length, diameter, and the reel's material compatibility with the fluids you're using. Our specialists can provide customised advice to ensure you choose the most suitable hose reel.

Spring tension adjustment can be done even while the reel is pressurised. Locate the tension adjustment knob or mechanism on your reel—usually found on the side or the bottom. Turn it according to the manufacturer's instructions to increase or decrease tension, ensuring best performance and ease of use.

The key specifications include temperature tolerance from -40 °C to 100 °C and hose lengths of up to 46 metres. These specifications ensure that the hose reels can operate efficiently in a wide range of environments and applications.

To increase spring tension, add wraps of hose by pulling out approximately 10 feet of hose and hand feeding it back through the roller bracket assembly until you can add two or three wraps on the spool. To reduce tension, remove wraps one at a time. For dual pedestal reels, remove the bumper and control handle to adjust the hose wraps.
