Types of Grease Hose Reels

Euroreels grease hose reels come in various types and configurations, each designed to meet specific needs and preferences. Here are the most common types of grease hose reels:

  1. Manual Hand-Cranked Reels: Manual hand-cranked grease hose reels are the most basic type of reel. They feature a manual crank that is used to retract the hose. These reels are typically more affordable and are suitable for applications where mobility is not a concern. Manual hand-cranked reels are often used in smaller workshops or facilities where the equipment is stationary or requires minimal movement.
  2. Spring-Driven Reels: Spring-driven grease hose reels are equipped with a spring mechanism that automatically retracts the hose after use. These reels are popular for their convenience and ease of use. With a spring-driven reel, the hose is automatically wound back into the reel with a simple tug, eliminating the need for manual winding. Spring-driven reels are suitable for applications where frequent movement is required, such as mobile equipment or workstations that require flexibility.
  3. Motor-Driven Reels: Motor-driven grease hose reels are the most advanced and versatile type of reel. These reels are powered by an electric or hydraulic motor, which provides automatic and effortless hose retraction. Motor-driven reels are ideal for heavy-duty applications or operations that require frequent movement and flexibility. With a motor-driven reel, the hose can be retracted at the touch of a button, saving time and effort.
  4. Open and Enclosed Reels: Grease hose reels can be further categorized into open and enclosed reels based on their design. Open reels feature an exposed drum, allowing for easy access and maintenance. Enclosed reels, on the other hand, have a protective casing that covers the drum, providing additional protection against contaminants and reducing the risk of damage. The choice between open and enclosed reels depends on the specific requirements of your application and the level of protection needed.
