The new Level Wind Hose Guide from technical solutions provider Tecpro Australia can automatically guide a hose without tangling or overfilling on one side as it is retracted.

It is manufactured in Stainless Steel with a corrosion resistant fabrication and a heavy-duty design to ensure it is suited for a range of food and beverage and general manufacturing industries.

The Level Wind Hose Guide moves from left to right so the hose lays flat across the hose reel and is powered by the rotation during retraction to evenly distribute the hose across the reel.

The hose solution comes as a kit that can be retro-fitted to any Ramex Spring Retracting Hose Reel, with standard kits accommodating for ½” and ¾” hoses.

Tecpro Australia can also provide the Level Winde House Guide kits for different sized hoses on request.
