Direct Inflation System

  • One operation inflation.
  • Fast inflation direct from cylinder.
  • Suitable for air and CO2.
  • Balanced to allow for different chamber sizes and pressures.
  • Customized to individual needs.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Rugged, using marine grade materials.
  • Currently in use by military forces worldwide.

This system consists of a cylinder, valve, hose system and inlet valves.  A wide range of components are available, examples of which are shown below and in the sample layout.  These components are tailored to your individual boat design, to ensure rapid and even inflation of the boat – please contact us with your requirements.

Simultaneous inflation and deflation of chambers can be achieved by using a simplified direct inflation system with Switchable Transfer Valves.
