Earth Bonding Reel

Type SE150/36

Mod Approved - Nato No. 7MTE/4930-99-215-0191

The Metool Reel Earth Bonding Reel is designed for aircraft and other refuelling applications where static electricity build-up generated by the transfer of fuel can result in spark hazards.

Installation and Operation

The reel, which is fixed to the chassis or frame of the refuelling tanker, is self retracting and carries 36m of high conductivity copper braided cable (can be fitted with 40m cable to special order). The spring and stopcatch mechanism allows the cable to be pulled out and relaxed at any desired position, an extra pull being all that is required to start the reel re-winding. A heavy duty universal spring clamp completes the circuit to the aircraft or other vehicle and ensures that both are at common potential.

Construction

The Metool Reel Earth Bonding Reel is:

  • constructed of heavy gauge steel components which are firstly zinc plated and finally painted for corrosion protection if required.

  • fitted with a safety stop prevents over winding or back winding of the spring which gives increased spring life.

  • has a completely contained spring and stopcatch mechanism within a sealed housing preventing damage and failure caused by road dirt and salt spray.

  • fitted as standard with 'Sloback' mechanism to ensure controlled recovery speed of cable for maximum safety of operator and to virtually eliminate risk of damage to reel and spring caused by uncontrolled reeling.

Features

  • Totally sealed spring and stopcatch prevents ingress of  road dirt and water.

  • Stopcatch mechanism allows reel to be mounted in any position.

  • Complete with 36m 1c x 4mm2 PVC sheathed braided  copper cable, rubber bump stop and heavy duty spring  clamp.

  • Total earth path resistance 0.25 Ohm.

  • Reel mechanism tested to -40C. Standard cable suitable  for -19C. Special cables for lower temperatures available  on request.

  • Hand rewind version also available.
