Validation, Analysis and Design of Critical Parameters of a Standard Hosereel

Aniruddha V. Parlikar [2] | Siddharth B. Gopujkar

Abstract: Hosereel. A hosereel is a an equipment that you will find on all machines-like fire trucks or drainage cleaning machines-that require to spray water with a lot of force. Even though it may not seem to complicated, it plays an important role in machines like a fire truck basically any machine that requires a hose to be carried around and used for spraying liquids. The main function of a hosereel is to carry the hose that is used for spraying the water. The hose is wound on the hosereel when the machine is in transit and in case of a swiveling hosereel, it also helps in the orientation of the hose and nozzle. But with change in application, the size of the hose also changes as does the method of mounting. Based on these factors, the hosereel needs to be designed as per the application. A hosereel with its strength compromised may fail owing to the crushing and bending stresses on it. On the other hand, an oversized one will lead to an unnecessary increase in the weight, cost and size of the motor required to rotate it. This paper deals with the design considerations while deciding the type of hosereel so as to ensure its smooth functioning.
