The motorized spring-assisted hose reel (MSHR) is designed to retract the hose with an electric motor that is assisted by a spring. We recommend this hose reel for use in light and heavy duty vehicle workshops where hoses are heavier than normal due to high exhaust temperatures, and overhead cranes or lifts are used.
MSHR- Motorized Spring-Assisted Hose Reel for a facility with high ceilings and vehicles that generate high exhaust temperatures. This allows operators to access other appliances such as cranes or lifts while reducing the risk of damaging vehicles or operator injury. MSHR addresses all these challenges, as it takes up a small space, can be mounted to the ceiling or on a wall. MSHR relies on a sealed coil spring cassette and a single-phase motor that includes limit switches with thermal overload protection. This powerful combination of motor and spring enables MSHR to manage the lifting capacity required of today’s higher temperature hoses.
Several up/down control devices are available for a problem-free exhaust extraction system: wall-mounted, pendulum, or radio, based on your facility setup and operators’ preferences.
Whether installing a single hose reel with a fan attached or several hose reels with a control system, MSHR can serve as the critical component in a cost-effective and energy-efficient solution. For example, Micro-switch controllers automatically turn on and off the fan as the hoses are lowered or raised. Also, dampers can be installed to improve energy efficiency based on the work patterns of your service technicians.
Our experts will recommend a proper fan and hose based on your facility’s airflow, vehicle types, and exhaust temperatures. You can count on our team’s successful designs and installation experience to achieve a long-term solution.
