Two custom-designed hose reels from ReCoila Reels survived a recent accident involving a long-haul B-double freighter travelling to Fremantle.

Though the entire truck was engulfed in flames, thankfully, the driver escaped unharmed, and for the most part, so did the two hose reels on board that were destined for one of ReCoila’s clients at the Port of Broome. While the two reels were deemed unsalvageable, they stood firm as testament to ReCoila’s rigid design and their engineering team’s quality craftsmanship.

Custom manufactured at ReCoila’s Sydney facility for a unique offshore fuelling application, the two RF Series hose reels are designed to each hold 25m of 3″ ID hose to enable high-flow refuelling. Each reel has a 415V electric drive system with forward/reverse and speed controls.

The reels are constructed of heavy duty 3mm steel plate to ensure rigidity and strength, and mounted on heavy duty castors to enable the fuelling hoses to be easily moved from one fuelling point to the next.
