A NEW, high pressure hose reel, rated to 5000psi maximum pressure, has been released by Australian Pump Industries . The new reel is claimed to offer substantial occupational health and safety benefits to users, as well as providing major cost reduction benefits.
Called the Reel Quick, model 5516 Series, the reel can take up to 50m of 3/8" ID, high pressure, double wire braid hose.
There are other benefits in using hose reels with high pressure water blasters. These include dramatically extended hose life (up to five times), more efficient operation (time saving on the job) and the virtual elimination of hose kinks.
High pressure hose kinks create leaks and eventual hose failure. Hose abrasion, from having the hoses dragged across concrete is also a major cause of failure.
The new 5516 Reel Quick reel offers a number of features including 360° pivoting action, a "clean-hands" hose guide that can be positioned either left or right of the reel and protects the operator's hands, a heavy duty, reinforced steel, crush proof hub and a unique, stainless steel swivel rated to 5000psi pressure.
A handy trolley, with two pneumatic tyres enables even super long lengths of hose to be handled with ease, reducing accidents and avoidinc wear and tear on the high pressure hoses.
Aussie Reel Quick reels are compatible with all brands of pressure cleaners and can be wall mounted or, for convenience, even mounted on top of the machine.
A free selection guide covering a full range of efficient hose reels is available, free of charge, by contacting Australian Pump Industries or its distributors throughout Australia.
