Hammar’s Lifejacket Inflators are equipped with a hydrostatic valve that gives exceptional protection against accidental inflation in the case of rain, spray, splash, or humidity. When the inflator is exposed to sufficient differential pressure, the hydrostatic valve will open, allowing the water to meet the water-sensitive element and start the activation.
It is important to don the lifejacket according to the manufacturer’s instructions to secure the function of the lifejacket and automatic inflation.
WHAT DOES AN INFLATOR DO?
The inflator is where the energy for puncturing the gas cylinder is stored or generated. An automatic inflator will commonly store the energy needed in a spring under tension held by a water-sensitive element. The element will break at entry into the water, releasing the spring connected to a pin, piercing the cylinder, and releasing gas into the bladder. The bladder increases in volume and creates buoyancy. A manual activation either releases the energy or generates the force needed to puncture the cylinder with the pull of the handle.
