Process Reels for Optic Fibre

Hearl Heaton ABS, Optic Fibre Process Reel

Hearl Heaton range High Performance ABS Flanged Process Reels – OF offers an alternative to our standard reel. Having been specifically designed for optic fibre tubing, various design features allow access to the inner end of the optic fibre for test purposes.

Available in both metric and imperial sizes from 250mm to 1000mm and 12” to 22, they are suitable for operation at extrusion speeds of up to 1,000 metres per min.

Whilst originally designed for use with optic fibre tubing, their lightweight, strong construction makes them suitable for a variety of applications.
Flanges are moulded from Pentre’s own specially selected, high grade, virgin Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), which combines strength with lightness, without being brittle.
Barrels are usually manufactured from seam welded, painted mild steel and the CNC machined bosses engineered from mild steel.

Reels are secured using high tensile strength steel bolts and unique locknuts.
