Coxreels Slp Series

Coxreels introduces enhancements for 1¼” and 1½” SLPL spring-driven reels

July 23, 2021
New inline swivels in five models now feature nickel-plated steel, helping to increase pressure ratings and improve durability

Coxreels recently made a product enhancement to its 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). 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 that it replaces, the company said. The new swivel includes Coxreels’ multi-lobe seals for 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, the company 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 was upgraded as well. 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.
