Coxreels recently enhanced the spring-driven 1¼- and 1½-inch SLPL 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 psi to 1,500 psi. The nickel-plated steel also is more rugged and durable than the aluminum swivel it replaces, the company said. The new swivel includes Coxreels multi-lobe seals for much improved leak integrity.
The new inline swivel also is available in stainless steel, which gives customers a choice with their stainless steel fluid path requirements. The stainless steel inline swivel fluid path is more cost-effective than the 90° swivel stainless steel fluid path, Coxreels said. The inline swivel also boasts a more efficient, less restrictive flow path than the 90° swivel.
The axle plumbing in both standard carbon steel models and optional stainless steel models also was upgraded. The 135° elbow on the axle riser was replaced with 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 claimed.
