Vessel Salvage ~ Floatation Airbags
order to meet the requirements for the vessel salvage and rescue industry, we
have redesigned the launching airbags. These can now be used as pontoons
for supporting docks and other floating structures, and they are also
excellent for pipe-laying and other underwater construction projects to
supply buoyancy. But the main application of the "Marine Salvage
Airbags" is in shipwreck salvage, floating bridge and dock
construction, rescue, and removal of wrecked ships and beached vessels.
Marine Salvage Airbags are very small in size when deflated, and are
lightweight. Thus, they can be easily transported and deployed. They can
be used vertically to right sunken vessels out of deep water. When the
boat is suspended near the surface they can be slung under the boat with
one end on each side to raise the boat high enough out of the water to
pump it out. In shallow water two bags can be slung together like
pontoons, one on each side of the boat. They can also be used as rollers
for moving beached boats back into the water, just like our Ship
1. Special synthetic tire-cord layer material
Our "Salvage Tubes" are made with special synthetic tire-cord
layers, which have much better performance than those made with PVC coated
2. High-Pressure Design
Salvage Tubes have a maximum working pressure of 0.25Mpa. That means that
they can be used under 25m water-depth.
3. Holistic Screw Type Enlacing Salvage Airbags
Our "Vessel Salvage Airbags" are a totally enclosed tube
with cone ends. It is manufactured using Holistic Screw technology. This
design ensures that there aren't any welded seams. This makes them
stronger than RF welded salvage airbags.
4. Equipped complete with accessories
Our Salvage-Bags are equipped with nylon straps and shackles with 6:1

Air Bags for Ship Salvage
ISO 9001: 2000
airbags are also known as launching bags, roller bags, air lift bags,
and salvage bags. Standard air bag size range is 1.0m to 2.0m diameter,
with lengths up to 18.0m 'effective length'.
Airbags are used for ship salvage, launching, and floating.
They are widely used in cargo boat launching and landing, lifting and
moving sunken ships, and salvaging stranded boats. Air bags have the
benefit of not only saving labor and time, but investment costs. Additionally
they are flexible, portable, and dependable.
relieve the restrictions of traditional slide-board technology which is commonly used in building small or medium size
ships, and it provides an economical alternative to expensive
bags also allow for the landing of vessels in locations
previously restricted only to dry docks. Years of trial and error with
pneumatic roller bag technology has increased the ability
of launching from 100-ton ships up to 13,500-ton ships when using
4-layer bags that are 1.5m dia x 15m long contain a rubber content that is not less than
51%. The air-bags can safely hold 156-tons with a safe working pressure
of 0.08MPa while rolling. When standing still the highest lifting pressure is 0.10MPa
while holding 194-tons.
6-layer bags that are 1.5m dia x 15m long contain a rubber content that is not less than
51%. The air-bags can safely hold 234-tons with a safe working pressure
of 0.12MPa while rolling. When standing still the highest lifting pressure is
0.14MPa while holding 272-tons.
