The United Moulders Pro Sensor Inflator designed for use on lifejackets where automatic inflation is desirable.
RTS supply the inflator as pictured with United Moulders Pro Sensor Inflator Op Head and UMA 5001 Mk5i Cartridge with Black end cap.
Technical Information on the United Moulders Pro Sensor Inflator can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
The United Moulders automatic system is activated when the cartridge comes in to contact with water. The mechanism inside the cartridge is a compressed spring held in place by a paper element. When the paper element makes contact with water the spring is released and a plunger is pushed forward. This pushes a cutter in to the CO2 Cylinder allowing the release of the gas and inflation of the bladder of the lifejacket. The auto system also has a manual backup that can be activated by pulling the toggle.
A range of spares for the Pro Sensor can be found here on the RTS Website.
