Selection Tips for the Right Air Hose Reel

To ensure you choose the perfect Euroreels air hose reel for your workshop, there are several factors to consider. These include hose length and diameter, material and construction, mounting options, and portability.

Understanding Hose Length and Diameter

The length and diameter of the hose are important factors to consider when selecting an air hose reel. The length of the hose should be sufficient to reach all areas of your workspace without the need for extensions. It’s recommended to measure the maximum distance from your air compressor to the farthest point where you’ll need the air hose and choose a reel that can accommodate that length.

The diameter of the hose determines the maximum airflow and pressure that can be achieved. A larger diameter hose allows for greater airflow and is suitable for applications that require high volumes of air, such as powering pneumatic tools. However, it’s important to ensure that the diameter of the hose matches the fittings and connectors on your air tools and equipment.

Material and Construction of Air Hose Reels

The material and construction of the air hose reel play a crucial role in its durability and longevity. Most air hose reels are made from either plastic, steel, or a combination of both.

  • Plastic Reels: Lightweight, affordable, and resistant to corrosion. However, they may not be as durable or long-lasting as steel reels, especially in heavy-duty or industrial settings.
  • Steel Reels: Known for their strength and durability. Our reels can withstand rough handling, extreme temperatures, and heavy usage. Steel reels are often powder-coated or galvanized to provide added protection against rust and corrosion.
  • Hybrid Reels: Combine the strength of steel with the lightweight and corrosion resistance of plastic. These reels offer a good balance between durability and affordability.
