Coxreels has introduced a product enhancement to its spring-driven 1 1⁄4- and 1 1⁄2-in. SLPL reel models. Prior to this update, these models of the SLPL came standard with Coxreels’ aluminum inline swivel. Optional on all of these models was the outsourced 90° swivel. For customers needing a stainless steel fluid path, the outsourced 90° stainless steel swivel was the only option.
Coxreels eliminated the aluminum inline swivel on five SLPL models (725, 750, 825, 835, and 850) and incorporated a nickel-plated steel inline swivel (from the 1185 Series). This swivel increases the pressure rating of the inline plumbing from 250 to 1500 PSI. The company says the swivel is more durable than in the aluminum swivel that it replaces, and includes multi-lobe seals to prevent leaks.
The new inline swivel is also available in stainless steel, which gives customers a more cost-effective option compared to the 90° swivel stainless steel fluid path. The inline swivel also boasts a more efficient, less restrictive flow path than the 90° swivel, the company says.
The axle plumbing in both standard carbon steel models and optional stainless steel models was upgraded as well. The 135° elbow on the axle riser has been replaced with the Coxreels swept riser design (also from the 1185 Series). The swept riser design offers a less restrictive flow path for improved flow efficiency, the company says.
