ISTinox PCA Hose Retriever

The flexible solution for the hose handling

The optimal layout of the air hose is a big challenge, since the PCA connections of the different aircraft types are at different positions. To enable an optimal operation, flexible handling of the hose length is required.With the new ISTinox retriever system "Elephantino", we can cover this need of the airports.

The ISTinox Hose Retriever manufactured completely in Stainless Steel ensures a flexible handling of the PCA air hose. Depending on the type of aircraft, only the needed length of the hose is rolled out.

The "Elephantino"

The ISTinox retriever system "Elephantino" manufactured completely in Stainless Steel ensures a flexible handling of the PCA air hose.

Depending on the type of aircraft, the ground staff can roll out the specifically needed length of the air hose. This prevents the overhang of the hose on the apron and reduces the potential for kinks and corresponding pressure losses. Through the use of a remote control device located at the connection to the aircraft, the reel can be operated easily and safely by one person, thus minimizing wear to the air hose and the aircraft coupling.

Advantages


  • Less hose lying on the apron, thus minimizing the risk of third party damage
  • Optimized airflow and reduction of pressure loss by avoiding wrinkles
  • The PCA air hose is transported with low resistance, thus reducing the wear of the pipes
  • Increased life-cycle of the PCA air hose



Advantages of Stainless Steel

Lifecycle

Stainless steel is easy to clean and with only minimum maintenance, stainless steel can be maintained in the as-new condition for decades.

Hygiene

The homogeneous nature of stainless steel with its exceptionally smooth and inert surface ensures the highest hygienic standards.

Environment

Stainless steel has a better energy and resource balance in production than other materials and is 100% recyclable.

Costs

When life cycle costs are considered, stainless steel is technically and economically the best solution.
