Specifically designed for use where water
depth is a critical factor.
The totally-enclosed, cylindrically-shaped bags are
perfect for shallow water salvage, reducing the draft of a vessel,
or raising an object closer to the surface. Salvage Pontoons also
prove invaluable in cable and pipeline operations, or where long
tows are planned.
Available in both standard cylinder shape and
Constructed of heavy-duty, ballistic-rated nylon
fabric coated with urethane. This specially-coated fabric is:
- High strength
- Very resistant to abrasion
- Not affected by most petro-chemicals
- UV resistant
The pontoon design incorporates a replaceable,
heavy-duty nylon webbing lift harness built into the body of the
lift bag, and has a safe working ratio of 6:1.
The harness arrangement maintains the lift bag
in a horizontal position while insuring maximum stability.
Salvage Pontoons have multiple attachment points.
All attachment points must be connected with the shackles
provided, and the load evenly distributed. Large pontoons
require a separate lifting beam to evenly distribute
Salvage Pontoons are equipped with:
- 3/4" NPT inflation port
- Equipped with brass quick disconnect for
- 3/4" NPT bronze ball valve for deflating
- Pressure relief valves they are set to
release at 2.5 psi above ambient pressure
