ReCoila manufactures three main types of hose reels – small industrial polypropylene reels, heavy duty steel reels, and completely custom made reels. We also import high quality steel spring rewind and stainless steel hose reels, as well as constant tension reels for use with automation equipment. 

There are a few things to consider to narrow down the choice of reels to choose from. You'll most likely know what you will be transferring - air, water, grease etc - and in addition you'll need to size the reel according to the inside diameter (ID) of the hose you will be using.

Consider the length of the hose you'll need based upon placement of hose in the work area. Note that the longer the hose, the greater the possibility of pressure loss. What kind of construction material will you need? Will polypropylene be adequate or do you need a heavy duty steel reel? You might like to consider stainless steel if corrosion will be a factor.

Of course, these recommendations are just a guide - if you're not sure, or would just rather talk to our technical staff, please feel free to give us a call and together we can find the best reel for your application.
