The VRS 2000 is the first and only self-contained
underwater vehicle recovery system available today.
Using state-of-the-art design materials and
manufacturing processes, this all-purpose system is designed to
be portable for rapid deployment, and is the result of an 18-year
evolutionary process drawing from hundreds of product applications,
combined with technological advancements.
SUBSALVE USA engineers and technicians
have worked with the commercial and public safety diving communities
to develop and refine this system, not just on the drawing board,
but in the water on recoveries.
The VRS 2000 System features include:
- 2-2000 lb. enclosed flotation bags equipped
with a pocket to contain an 80 cu. ft. aluminum scuba cylinder.
- The lift bags are manufactured from a high-strength,
urethane-coated, nylon fabric which is highly abrasion, oil, and
- The air cylinder is connected to the lift
bag with a scuba yoke and hose assembly with a one-way check valve
to allow for easy tank changes while preventing any loss of air
from the bag.
- The attachment design includes 2 stainless
steel lift rings on the top and 2 on the bottom of the bag, allowing
the lift bag to be rigged either flat or upright.
- The bottom lift rings are
each equipped with a 3' length of 1/4" galvanized
proof coil chain with a stainless steel snap carabina
on the end.
With the lift rings spaced at 40" apart
and the carabina on the end of the chain, attachment to the front
and rear bumper or shock brackets of most vehicles is quick and
This design also enable the bags to
be rigged to cradle the car by connecting the two 3' chains together
to pass under the vehicle. The lift bags are equipped with a pressure
relief valve in each corner to prevent blow-up and also to allow
the diver to manually vent the bag from any corner. A 3/4" brass
ball valve is located at the top center of each lift bag to allow
for rapid deflation.
An optional two-valve station
brass manifold assembly (with quick disconnects, shut-offs, and
two 50' hose assemblies for remote or controlled inflation) is available.
