Car and truck maintenance facilities are often comfronted with the presence of fumes and gases produced while the engines are running during tune-up or repairs. The Maxireel fume extraction system is well adapted to capture the deadly pollutants emitted from combustion engines. Made of rugged rolled steel components, the Maxireel recoils the flexible hose around the drum when not in use. A heavy duty dual spring pack with ratchet lock mechanism is located on the side of the reel. Optional motor driven reels with radio signal control is also available along with a fan mounted directly on the hose reels. A central fan can also be used for multiple reels installation. Fitted directly on the automobile tailpipe or truck stack, the different available nozzles can be made of steel, stainless steel, aluminum or rubber. Dependind on the application, hoses are available in 3″ (75 mm), 4″ (100 mm), 5″ (125 mm), 6″ (150 mm) and 8″ (200 mm) diameters. Hose reels can also take up to 42′ (13 M) of hose. High temperature hoses (up to 1200 °F / 650 °C) are offered for extreme duty application.
