A NEW high pressure hose reel designed for use with pressure cleaners and water blasters of all brands has been released by Australian Pump Industries .
Called the Aussie Reel Quick model 4416, the reel will store up to 50 metres of 3/8" high pressure hose and up to 100 metres of 1/4" hose.
Like all Aussie Reel Quick the new model features 5000psi pressure rating and a maximum operating temperature range of up to 120°C. The reel boasts a number of great features including a 5000psi rated swivel designed specifically for pressure washer applications. It is chemical resistant and manufactured from stainless steel and brass.
The reel swivel is backed by an Aussie Pump 2-year no leak guarantee for all pressure washer applications within the temperature and pressure range. It also incorporates a unique hose loop and clamp design that protects the swivel, hose and fitting from hard pulls.
The circular drum provides superior crush resistance as well as a smooth surface for the hose to lie in. There are no cut outs, sharp edges or bends to damage the hose.
An integrated reel lock is built into the machine. The reel lock keeps the reel from unwinding while not in use. It operates with a simple pull and turn motion through a stainless steel pin incorporated in the hub design.
"Using a hose reel to store high pressure hoses on either constructions sites, in factories or industrial applications has real OH&S benefits," said Aussie Pumps Hamish Lorenz.
"Ninety per cent of all industrial accidents are caused through obstacles and incorrectly stored hoses figure prominently," he said.
The new reels can be worn out of operator convenience in wash bays or car wash locations or attached to the top of a pressure cleaner by a handy, virtually universal base mount arrangement.
There are other benefits in the use of Aussie Reel Quick hose reels. These include dramatically extended hose life, reduction in hose outer cover abrasion and huge gains in overall safe operation of the washing process.
