Coxreels, a manufacturer of reels and powder-coated reels with fluid paths, has begun to offer various stainless steel-grade choices to its customers in order to meet exact specification needs.
With the addition of these new stainless steel options, customers can choose from 316 and 304 stainless steels for the fluid paths on various reel types in order to match the necessary corrosion resistance of the reel, specific to the application.
Coxreels stainless steel reel spools and frames will remain 302/304 grade stainless and are optionally available in an electro-polished finish for additional corrosion resistance. These stainless steels are most commonly found in most applications where corrosion resistant steel is required, such as food and beverage, sanitation, dairy, pharma, appliances, and sinks. The 316-grade stainless steel is more commonly seen in marine applications, some acidic fluids, chemicals that end in ‘ine’ such as chlorine and bromine, and also is often specified when long-lasting appearance is desired.
