Propane delivery is no small task. It’s not made any easier when you’re stuck with inefficient equipment, either. Your LP gas operation requires heavy-duty equipment that can withstand a wide range of conditions while maintaining top performance.
Though Hannay set the standard for LP gas reels back in 1933, we continue to push new boundaries and make improvements to ensure that our customers have the right equipment for the job. Read on to see how one of our signature LP gas reels can improve your operation.
Ready for Any Conditions
Conditions in peak propane season are not the most forgiving, especially to your equipment. Rain, sleet and snow can take quickly take their toll. With frequent use, components can become worn down. By having the right reel on your side, you can focus more on keeping up with deliveries instead of worrying about when your equipment will quit on you.
The SBPBGMB/SBPBGMT Series LP gas reels are constructed with polished aluminum for a lightweight, corrosion-resistant design. The reels feature the industry’s first IP68-certified waterproof motor, affording even more protection against water and dust intrusion. A split bronze bearing on the inlet side of the reels is now standard. As a result, removal of the swivel joint is no longer necessary to replace the bearing, and replacement can be completed in the field in just a matter of minutes.
Improved Hose Control
Proper hose handling can mean the difference between a safe delivery or a total disaster. Operators require consistent, reliable control over the hose in order to keep up with demands. Manually rewinding the hose after each deployment can also take time and limit how many deliveries your service is able to complete in a given day.
Using a Hannay LP gas reel equipped with Guidemaster® boosts operator safety and efficiency. The Guidemaster® gives operators more control over the hose, allowing them to pull it out and away from the deck in any direction. The pivot pin in the Guidemaster® is supported by ball bearings, which allows for smooth side-to-side motion when handling the hose. This attachment also protects the hose with wear-resistant hourglass rollers. An explosion-proof rewind control is integrated right into the handle, cutting down on time and energy otherwise spent manually rewinding the hose.
Hannay Reels has the reel solution that you can trust for the highest safety, efficiency, and performance. For more information about our LP gas reels, contact us at 877-467-3357, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the links below.
