Aussie Pumps Industries, also known as Australian Pump Industries , have released the new Aussie Reel Mate range of hose reels designed specifically for high pressure washing applications. The reels offer pressures up to 4,000 p.s.i. and come pre-mounted with high pressure hose compatible with all brands of pressure washing equipment.
According to Aussie Pumps Industries, the Aussie Reel Mate range of hose reels store high pressure hose with easy retraction. This facility means hoses are not left in a jumble on the workshop floor. The occurrence of industrial accidents can be reduced.
The smaller of the two reels, the model AD3001 offers 3,500 p.s.i. rating and comes with 15 metres of R2 double wire braid 5/16” hose. The AD3001 Aussie Reel Mate hose reel is suitable for machines with flows of up to 15 litres and comes with its own mounting bracket and whip hose.
The larger unit, the model ADHR40100D, is rated to 4,000 p.s.i. and comes with 30 metres of R2 double wire braided 3/8” hose. The ADHR40100D AD3001 Aussie Reel Mate hose reel has higher pressure rating that makes it suitable for a range of pressure cleaners used in either agricultural or industrial applications.
Aussie Pumps Industries observe that the AD3001 and ADHR40100D Aussie Reel Mate hose reels are flexible and can be wall-mounted for easy operation in wash bays or cleaning stations in the food or chemical industry. The mounting pad facilitates installation on mobile machines, making them suitable for engine-powered pressure cleaners such as the Aussie BB series.
The AD3001 and ADHR40100D Aussie Reel Mate hose reels have the following features:
- Ergonomic rewind handle
- Heavy-duty steel construction
- Rugged tube mount base
- Spring reel lock to keep the reels from unwinding when not in use
The spring action pin is easy to use with a simple pull action. The hose assemblies provided on the high pressure reels include quick coupler connectors compatible with most brands of high pressure water blasters.
