“With Hannay Reels, we know what we’re going to get every time. Rugged and reliable reels built to last.” – Robert Bixby, Owner
ClearBlu Environmental is a full service water treatment company specializing in best-in-class green technologies to treat wastewater. Divisions include manufacturing, systems integration, system installation, and system service. The company focuses on applying sustainable technologies to process wastewater.
As a water reclamation company, ClearBlu builds wash bay solutions for industrial sites, wineries, breweries, and food processors that require consistent on-site cleaning. The wash bay solutions feature high-pressure, high-volume, and low-pressure hose reels to perform sanitation operations.
“We choose Hannay Reels for all of our reel installations because we know the product will arrive on-time and accurately,” said Robert Bixby, owner of ClearBlu Environmental. “That hasn’t always been the case for other suppliers.”
Each wash bay solution includes self-cleaning basins, mud separators, biological treatment systems, and cleaning equipment such as pressure washers or vacuums. Depending on the size of the wash bay, the solution may require between 2 and 10 reels.
“We tell our customers that we can design and customize any wash bay system requested,” added Bixby. “In order for us to make good on that promise, we need reels that can address those needs.”
With Hannay Reels, every reel is built-to-spec meeting exact customer requirements. Whether it’s an 8,000-square-foot industrial facility or a quaint winery in the country, ClearBlu supplies wash bay systems for varying hose size and reach. Hannay Reels responds with manual and power rewind options to ensure hose lengths can be not only accommodated, but also safely and quickly deployed and picked up.
Beyond supplying reliable custom reels, Hannay Reels delivers products built to endure trying workplace conditions. Bixby noted, “The reels are in constantly wet locations. We need a high quality paint to handle dampness for years to come within these wash bay systems.”
Several distinct design and construction advantages contribute to the “buy it once” quality of Hannay reels, many times outlasting the equipment they are used with. A one-piece hub assembly with heavy-gauge steel frame discs and drums produces long-term strength, reliability, and versatility to every operation.
“As our company expands to serve more national facilities, the biggest concern is always uniformity. Our customers want every wash bay purchased to perform the same, which requires consistent components,” added Bixby. “With Hannay Reels, we know what we’re going to get every time. Rugged and reliable reels built to last.”
