Pneumatic Components Limited (PCL) has released three new sizes of plastic air hose reels.
Each has a hose stop that stops in any position – and is adjustable at the flick of a lever. This enables operators to alter the length of hose remaining outside the main body, which is especially convenient when working further away from the hose body than anticipated.
Auto retract is standard. All but the two bench top hose reels are slow retract, now taking an extended 13 seconds instead of seven or eight to fully retract. All reels have built-in cleaning brushes to prevent dirt and loose swarf getting back into the main body of the unit causing the layering system to fail.
PCL’s popular wall and post mountable Hose Reel (HRA1B03), suitable for multiple applications, is now slow retract, with cleaning brushes and adjustable ball stop as standard at no extra cost. Another customer favourite, the rubber/PVC blend hose, is still available on two products.
PCL says it has responded to customer feedback asking for a better quality, sturdier bracket by including a stronger, heavier duty bracket within the package.
All features and benefits are clearly outlined on the new packaging, making PCL’s new air hose range an attractive display for merchandising units, as well as an aesthetic addition to workshops.
