High flow and low pressure drop maximises output
Tom Parker has introduced a new range of CEJN safety hose reels for compressed air, water, and electricity. From a safety perspective, the team at CEJN evaluated different reels on the market, looking into injuries suffered by people and harm to the environment. Four areas were highlighted: hose retraction, hose replacement, stop-balls and locking.
The most dangerous aspect of a hose reel is the spring force during rewinding. CEJN’s new safety reel is equipped with a sturdy centrifugal brake in the drum, combined with a strong spring force, giving a slow and steady retraction, which is both safe for the people and objects nearby in the workplace.
Also highlighted were the risks and difficulties of changing a hose. When a casing is opened, severe injury to the user can be caused by the strong embedded tension of the metal spiral within. To combat this, CEJN safety reels feature an encapsulated spring cassette to protect the user if the reel needs to be dismantled. CEJN’s new design no longer requires a user to dismantle the reel to change a hose; meaning the task takes under a minute and is completely safe.
During the product development stage of the safety reel, the design team had one main ambition: to create a reel where flow limitations and pressure drop were virtually eliminated. Now the company says it offers a solution that is almost twice as effective as the standard reel when it comes to performance.
CEJN’s focus on performance aims to create solutions that help customers save money. In addition to perfecting performance in their product design, fittings and transition are optimised to eliminate pressure drop, leakage and system loss, to help maximise tool efficiency. As the hose can be easily changed if damaged, the reel can last much longer than most other reels on the market. By investing in a CEJN safety reel, a product is purchased that will last for years to come.
