Anatomy of a Reel
Types of Reels

A reel is a device that winds up and stores hose or cable. In a broad sense, there are three kinds of reels:
  • 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 Figure A).
  • 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 Figure B).
  • 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.)
We also offer combination reels 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 (electric, air, or hydraulic).

General Specifications of Hannay Hose Reels

The Anatomy of a Hannay Hose Reel

This cutaway illustration shows a typical power rewind reel with an optional auxiliary crank rewind mechanism. All Hannay reels are assembled from combinations of the basic components shown here. Since components are taken from a large inventory, each reel is assembled to the buyer's requirements.





Construction: Frames, discs, and drums are fabricated of heavy-gauge steel. Bearings are self-aligning. Malleable iron and steel are used for hose reel hub assembly, outlet riser, and swivel joints. Stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, and other alloys, and special swivel joint packing, can be supplied to meet special requirements.

Finish: Most reels are finished with e-coating or oven-cured enamel. Finishes other than standard may be specified at extra cost.

Temperatures & Pressures: Standard reel construction will handle most liquids or gases at temperatures ranging from -20º to +400º F (-29º to +204º C). Operating pressures are available up to 10000 psi (695 bar) depending on the specific reel series. Operating temperatures and pressures are shown on the descriptive pages in each product catalog.

Shipping: Reels are shipped completely assembled and ready to install. Installation instructions are supplied with each reel.



The Anatomy of a Hannay Cable Reel 

This cutaway illustration shows a typical power rewind reel with an optional auxiliary crank rewind mechanism. All Hannay reels are assembled from combinations of the basic components shown here. Since components are taken from a large inventory, each reel is assembled to the buyer's requirements. 



Construction: Frames, discs, and drums are fabricated of heavy-gauge steel. Bearings are self-aligning. Collector ring housings are ABS plastic or insulated steel, depending on model.

Electrical Connections: A pull wire is provided for installing cable through drum and hub. Connection from the electrical source to the reel is through a junction box or a preconnected wire lead, depending on the reel model.

Collector Ring Assembly: Reels to handle live electric cable are normally equipped with a 3-conductor collector ring assembly. Assemblies with additional conductors, and for higher amperage, are available at extra cost on most models. Be sure to specify your application.

Standard: 45A 600V standard. Up to 300A available at additional cost.

Finish: Most reels are finished with e-coating or oven-cured enamel. Finishes other than standard may be specified at extra cost.

Shipping: Reels are shipped completely assembled and ready to install. Installation instructions are supplied with each reel.
