Manual, hydraulic, electric, pneumatic hose reels – general information
Manually and mechanically driven hose reels are widely used in the marine industry, offshore, steel mills, service vehicles, quays, airports, etc. These different drives allow the hose reels to handle large-diameter hoses ensuring reliable operation. Our company offers many construction and finish options: powder coated carbon steel, AISI 304 steel and special options available on request, e.g. epoxy resin coating.
Hand crank hose reels: A hose is reeled in and out manually by turning a crank attached to a hose reel drum (directly or through a gear). Used for longer hoses mainly (up to several hundreds of meters).
A hose is reeled in and out by a motor which conveys power to a hose reel drum (through a gear or chain drive). Various types of drives are available – pneumatic, hydraulic and electric (12 V, 24 V, 110 V, 230 V, 400 V). The motor driven hose reels are recommended, when the hose is used very often or when the hose is particularly heavy and manual rewinding may not be possible.
