Types of Reels Available

A reel is a device that winds up and stores hose or cable. Keep scrolling this page for a detailed view of both a typical hose reel and cable reel. In a broad sense, there are 3 kinds of reels:

  1. Live Hose Reel: Stores hose and allows fluid to pass through hose and reel without taking all of the hose off the reel first. This is accomplished through the use of a swivel joint (see picture below).
  2. Live Cable Reel: Stores cable and allows current to pass through the cable without taking all of the cable off the reel first. This is accomplished through the use of a collector ring assembly (see picture below).
  3. Storage Reel: Stores either hose or cable, but does NOT allow current or fluid to flow while the hose or cable is still on the reel. Instead, everything must be taken off the spool of the reel. Then a connection is made to the hose or cable. (Because these reels only store the hose or cable, they have fewer components and tend to be less expensive.)
     

There are also combination reels available that can handle both fluids and electrical cable on the same reel. Reels can be rewound by a variety of methods: crank, spring-power, or motor (either electric, air, or hydraulic).

Since 1933, Hannay Reels has been making workplaces safer and more productive while protecting hose and cable from damage. We offer more than 2700 reels and, if one of these doesn't fit your needs, we'll design a reel to your specifications.
