Full description

You can launch 6 times without refilling the air cylinder. The minimum launching distance is 230 meters. All parts are re-useable

The Pneumatic Line Thrower (PLT) R-230 Basic is intended used to comply with SOLAS requirements for line-throwing. No sparks, therefore can be used in an explosive environment.

The base unit contains a built-in air cylinder for filling of compressed air up to 200/300 bars (2900/4350psi). This is sufficient for 4/6 shots before refilling is necessary. The air cylinder is fitted with standard fittings for diving and BA-equipment for filling of dry clean air from a high-pressure compressor.

Four projectiles come with the PLT. The projectiles are made of ABS plastic with aluminium inner tube. The projectiles are filled with 240m (263yd) nylon line, and can be reloaded and re-used (additional equipment needed).­
