HOW TO ORDER
THE SIZE, LENGTH AND TYPE OF HOSE TO BE HANDLED ARE PRIMARY FACTORS IN SELECTING THE PROPER REEL FOR YOUR JOB. THE FOLLOWING POINTS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED:
HOSE I.D., O.D. & LENGTHWhen space permits, select a reel with greater hose capacity than you require. This allows you to rewind the hose with less care and keeps the hose well protected within the disc dimension, even if the hose is not wound in uniform coils. (See hose selection chart below)
SIZE & TYPE OF SWIVEL JOINT & SEAL FOR INLET & OUTLETIn selecting your reel please note the size of you hose versus the inlet and outlet sizes. Reducing your fitting & hose size will allow for more hose capacity.
RETRACTION METHOD & PROPER USEChoose from Spring Driven, Hand Crank or Motor Driven retraction.
SPRING DRIVEN: Automatic rewind requiring no power source. Operator is to guid the hose or cord as it self-tretracts and wraps around the drum. For models to be mounted 15 feet above the floor, consult factory & specify on P.O.'s for proper spring retraction motor.
HAND CRANK: Operator must manually crank the reel and guide the hose or cord evenly as it wraps around the drum to reach full capacity.
MOTOR DRIVEN: Requires a power source to operate in AC, DC, Air or Hydraulic power. On/Off switches and speed controllers are available to help control retraction speedl. You must guide the hose or cord efficiently back on the reel to reach full capacity.
MOUNTING POSITIONDetermine which mountin position you require. All reels are shipped in the floor-ceiling mount (FM) position with the exception of the "T," "EN," and "SD" Series, which are shipped in the wall-truck mount (WM) position. See diagram to the right for the "SP & DP" Series as well.
CHOOSE TYPE OF HOSEConsider temperature, product type and pressure required (PSI).
Always use good quality hose rated for the service and operating pressure required. Poor quality hose tends to expand and contract under pressure surges. When this happens, hose remaining on the reel may bind and become difficult to handle. In extreme cases, poor quality hose may expand under pressure to the extent that the reel becomes distorted and inoperable.
ADDITIONAL OPTIONSCustomize your reel to meet your exact requirements.
Once you select your reel type consider the different add-on features such as roller brackets, special mountin brackets, carry handles or a cart for portability. See the options available indicated on each page.

The drawing below shows two reels with different shapes and dimensions but with identical hose capacity. In most cases, more than one reel will handle the size and length of hose you need, so you can specify a reel to fit your space requirements.
