LPU-10/P Underarm LPEach cell is inflated
by a 28 gram CO2 cylinder. In case of failure of the
mechanical system, an oral inflation system for inflating the preserver
is provided on each cell. This assembly incorporates the use of the
FLU-1/P-FLU-1A/P inflator with venting capabilities. When packed, any
air trapped in the cell will vent through the valve. Upon actuation of
the mechanical inflation system, the vent is closed, allowing the cells
to fill with air and maintain buoyancy. This preserver has no provisions
for the installation of accessories or survival equipment.
It consists of two neoprene coated fabric buoyancy cells, each stowed into
a flat envelope-type container. This life preserver features a standard HB manual
inflator with a cell-venting capability that eliminates the need for a
breathing clip. The inflator lever locks in the up position and the
valve stem is short and does not have valve cores. The removal of the
valve core allows venting of the cell until the inflator is actuated.
The oral tube valve pocket is also eliminated from the cell container on
this assembly. The LPU-10/P has no provision for the installation of
accessories or survival equipment.
