Coxreels (Tempe, AZ) has introduced a product enhancement to the spring-driven 1¼” and 1½” 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). Specifically:
- This swivel increases the pressure rating of the inline plumbing from 250psi to 1500psi.
- The nickel plated steel is also far more rugged and durable than the aluminum swivel that it replaces.
- The new swivel includes Coxreels multi-lobe seals for much improved leak integrity.
The new inline swivel is also available in stainless steel, which gives customers a choice with their stainless steel fluid path requirements. The stainless steel inline swivel fluid path is considerably more cost-effective than the 90° swivel stainless steel fluid path. The inline swivel also boasts a more efficient, less restrictive flow path than the 90° swivel.
