REELING DRUMS

REELING DRUMS

Metreel is one of the leading suppliers of cable and hose reeling systems in the UK and has recently acquired the products of the renowned UK Reeling Drum manufacturer, namely Metool Reeling Products. The additional of this range adds value to our offering by providing a standard product solution to our portfolio of engineered solutions.

This comprehensive range includes options of spring and motor drive options as standard, however many special and custom designed solutions are possible from within our capacity and wealth of experience.

SC SPRING OPERATED CABLE & HOSE REELING DRUMS

By using one piece drum halves made from heavy gauge steel, the SC range of reels offer strong and waterproof solution for both indoors and outdoor environments. The drum revolves on a pair of “sealed for life” ball races resulting in the complete reel being maintenance free.

The springs have been proved in service for over 50 years and are manufactured from the highest quality materials. They are of the “clock spring” or spiral wound type and by using the springs singly or assembled in series or in parallel, a wide range of performance characteristic can be obtained from the standard range.

EARTH BONDING REELS

The Metreel Earth Bonding Reel is designed for aircraft and other refueling applications where static electricity build-up generated by the transfer of fuel can result in spark hazards.

The reel, which is fixed to the chassis or frame of the refueling tanker, is self-retracting and carries 36m of high conductivity copper braided cable. The spring and stop catch mechanism allows the cable to be pulled out and relaxed at any desired position, an extra pull being all that is required to start the reel rewinding. A heavy duty universal spring clamp completes the circuit to the aircraft or other vehicle and ensures that both are at the common potential.

FEATURES

  • Totally sealed spring and stopcatch prevents ingress of road dirt and water
  • Stopcatch mechanism allows reel to be mounted in any position
  • Complete with 36m 1c 4mm² PVC sheathed braided copper cable, rubber bump stop and heavy duty spring clamp
  • Total earth path resistance 0.25Ohm
  • Reel mechanism tested to -40°C. Standard cable suitable for -19°C. Special cables for lower temperature available on request
  • Hand rewind version also available.

CUSTOM ENGINEERED SOLUTIONS

Metreel’s range of standard reeling solutions cover the majority of applications required by industry, however from time to time you may have a need which falls outside of normal parameters and as such needs a special solution.

Our capacity to develop custom designed reels is second to none, with 3d CAD software our engineers use their vast experience to develop solutions for clients providing realistic visual models to help with the design process.
