What is REELFLOW?
The new REELFLOW by STAC, Inc is our quick and easy way of plumbing a hydraulic hose reel system on bobtails.
The REELFLOW itself is an entire hydraulic system produced by STAC, Inc for trucks that have hydraulic hose reels and hydraulically driven product pumps. The system is built into our 500HHR, a new version of our 500P, which was designed specifically for REELFLOW applications.
Inside the 500HHR is a patent pending manifold (which can be sold separately) that controls both the product pump and the hose reel. The 500423 manifold uses solenoids that are controlled by your hand held remote system. It eliminates the need for multiple valves by incorporating them all into one body.
How do i use reelflow technology?
The REELFLOW technology can be used in two ways. One way is to buy our new 500HHR THERMAFLOW. This unit was designed specifically for REELFLOW to be built inside. The second way to incorporate REELFLOW into your new system is by combining our 500423 manifold with a cooler other than the 500HHR. A cooler such as the 934 is very compatible with the manifold and gives you the benefits of the REELFLOW technology.
System design can be a lot. You know what you want out of a system, but you might not know how to achieve it with your current set up. A REELFLOW system is no exception. If you have any questions about how to set up a REELFLOW system or want to learn more, we are happy to help you through this process!
With the REELFOW installed on your bobtail you get the benefits of...
- Power In/Out & Free Spooling
- Elimination of the Chain & Sprocket
- Optional Speed Adjustment
- Operator Protection with the Internal Relief Valve
- Reduced Maintenance
- Smooth Operation
- Reduced Downtime
Designed to Make Your Job Easier!
The new REELFLOW by STAC, Inc is designed to make bobtail drivers and mechanics’ jobs easier. The electric controls not only operate the product pump, but also the hydraulic hose reel. This can all be done via the handheld radio remote control. In addition to power in and out, the hydraulic controls allow the operator to free spool so they can manually adjust the hose. Plus, the REELFLOW eliminates the chain, so there is no need to worry about maintenance or failure of the chain or sprocket.
Why use a hydraulic hose reel?
First of all, a hydraulic hose reel system eliminates all the hassles of a traditional chain and sprocket. The safety that comes with a hydraulic hose reel. No longer will you have to worry about catching a glove or a hand in the sprocket. The hydraulic relief valve included in REELFLOW will quit pulling if something were to get stuck, where as an electric hose reel will continue to pull, potentially causing injury to the operator. This feature also guards the motor from over pressurization. Also, with a hydraulic hose reel, you can utilize the hydraulic system that controls your product pump.
