The Compressed Air reel comes with 1/2" femail NPT threads and a minimum inner diameter of 1/2". These babies flow! So no more worrying about using your favorite air tools inline with our reels.
Smooth wrap onto the shaft with tension relief to protect your hoses and keep them lasting longer. The end cap can be clocked in 30 degree intervals with ease to suit your mounting needs. This means that you can position the incoming hose at whatever angle works for your setup while avoiding kinks. Port is a female thread 1/2"NPT on shaft and endcap. Replaceable o-rings are located in the endcap and are a standard -224 size however we ship them with a proprietary self lubricating o-ring rated to +225°F all the way down to -45°F
The reel is fully sealed. The bearings and rotary parts reside inside a sealed housing. The bearings, each rated to over 6,500lbs dynamic load and filled with a wide temperature low friction grease reside inside this housing.We use a heavy duty lip seal to seal the shaft to the base and o-rings to seal the other components which keeps that grinder dust and other elements out of your reels! This makes them cold and hot weather safe and keeps them running in all sorts of extreme conditions.
The finish on the parts is hard anodizing which increases surface hardness by ~ 4x and is applied in a controlled thickness which means we can coat everything, even the threaded holes. This prevents the galvanic corrosion that naturally occurs when aluminum and stainless meet. All aluminum used in the construction of the reels is 6061-T6 and is North American aluminum.
Our reels are built by pipeline welders and can withstand the harshest conditions, tried and tested. This is also one of the reasons we have custom created a twin bearing easy grip handle to make the last job of the day a little easier.
