Hydrostatic Release Unit

Great Circle Hydrostatic Release Unit is a quick release system that allows your life raft to inflate automatically in an emergency situation without you having to do anything. Designed and fabricated from tough non-corrosive materials, the HRU is durable and effective in an emergency situation. From 1.5 to 4.0m, water pressure is sufficient enough to operate the release mechanism to free life rafts and emergency beacons for deployment, without any manual handling. This offers considerable advantages both in reliability and performance as the releasing system does not depend on a pyrotechnic device or a battery to release the life raft or emergency beacon. 

The Hydrostatic Release Unit meets all international regulations and each unit is individually tested to ensure that it is the most reliable.
