If you need something with a longer reach or that can be permanently fixed, a static grounding reel is the right choice over an assembly.  Our line of static bonding and grounding reels are used extensively with aircraft refueling, and the loading/unloading of tank cars, storage tanks, trucks, grain silos, and chemical/fuel refineries.  The underside of all our reels are unpainted, so that you can mount the reel directly to a grounded surface, or to the conductive item that you wish to ground.

Heavy-Duty Static Grounding Reels

The ML2930 Series are very ruggedly constructed to withstand the toughest environments.  Their open-style design seals all the mechanical parts in an internal gasketed chamber.  This prevents dirt and moisture on the cable from reaching the mechanical parts inside.  

A latching mechanism holds the cable at any desired length.  A slight pull on the cable releases the mechanism causing retraction.   A ball and adjustable cable stop on the cable assembly keep the cable end within easy reach.  The standard models include the LE-21C alligator clamp.

Our heavy-duty static grounding/bonding reels offer steel components and a cantilever-type frame, which support the reel assembly, and are designed to function under the most adverse conditions.  Retraction need not be attended, as the retraction speed is automatically governed by a special brake assembly designed to limit the speed from two to seven feet per second.  Maintenance and repairs are made possible by bolt-together construction.  Baked-on MIL spec red finish and gasketed drum construction protect operating parts from corrosion.   Bearing surfaces are permanently lubricated.

  • STANDARD CLAMP: 100 amp solid copper alligator clip (LE-21C)
  • ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE: 5 ohms maximum between clamp and mounting base
  • FINISH: Red enamel
  • SPECIAL FEATURE: Braking system governing cable retraction speed

The Lind Equipment heavy-duty reels offer a robust, gasketed design in a lower cost, riveted construction.  Priced very reasonably, providing a viable alternative to manual rewind reels, yet offering the benefit of automatic self-retraction of the cable.  Clamps should be walked back to the reel during retraction.  These reels meet MIL-PRF A-A-50696 for use in military deployments.
