Cobham’s Automatic Life Preserver Inflators are highly reliable and lightweight, water activated inflation devices that have set the standard for militaries around the world for decades


Cobham utilises its expertise in water activation technology in the design and manufacture of a suite of qualified automatic life preserver inflators used by customers around the world.  Cobham has the ability to customise the configuration of these inflators to exceed the customer's particular requirement. 


Currently in service worldwide, the FLU-8B/P, FLU-9B/P, and FLU-12/P are small, lightweight, highly reliable and cost effective, water-activated life preserver inflators.  These units are virtually identical in their operation; they differ only slightly in size and appearance.  The FLU's advanced water-sensing electronic circuitry activates upon immersion in seawater, resulting in the release of compressed CO2 into the life preserver bladders.
