Hose reels can be used for steam, but only together with hoses specifically designed for steam. To mount the hose on the reel, always use fittings intended for steam, assembled with special safety clamps.

The clamps should be checked for tightness with each use, as the hose material may deform when exposed to steam for a long period. Loose connections should be retightened, and parts showing excessive wear should be re-assembled after cutting off the excessively deformed section of the hose. Also, the hose reel may pick up heat, so it is important to pay attention to the safety of the operator. Steam can be fed into the set only after the hose is fully unwound..
