Coxreels, which manufactures professional-grade hose, cord and cable reels, recently improved its V-100 Series of hand crank reels, which now are offered with hose included, the company says.
With a redesigned fluid path, the V-100 Series features improved O-ring sealing for greater vacuum consistency and performance, in addition to a new swivel retention system, which has strengthened the frame and prevents separation of the swivel under excessive lateral loading, Coxreels said.
Along with the redesign, the company added zinc plating to the swivel components for greater corrosion protection.
The new swivel design includes another important feature, the company said.
Previously, the hose reel only accepted 1.5-inch inlet, but the new swivel allows for the connection of 2-inch hose on the inlet in addition to the 1.5-inch hose. This is done by sizing the inlet to fit 1.5-inch hose on the inside and 2-inch hose on the outside. Many retail shop vacuums come with 2-inch hose, not 1.5, so the redesign makes the product more accessible to home and light commercial applications, Coxreels said. The outlet remains 1.5 inches for 1.5-inch slip hose cuffs.
The reels with hose are offered in two hose lengths, but the reel itself remains unchanged. The hose lengths correspond to the horsepower rating of the vacuum used with the reel. For vacuums with ratings of 5 HP or less, the 35-foot model is recommended. For vacuums with greater than 5 HP ratings, the 50-foot model is recommended. The hose has a flexible “crush-proof” smooth interior hose suitable for commercial cleaning applications and is equipped with standard 1.5-inch threaded hose cuffs.
