The Toolbox of Line Throwers

PLTĀ® Multi is an air driven multi-purpose line thrower that is being used both at sea and on land. The heart of theĀ PLTĀ® Multi is the PLTĀ® Launching Unit that works on either 200 (2900 psi) or 300 bars (4350 psi).

It can be used again immediately after being refilled with compressed air. Since the PLTĀ® Launching Unit works on compressed air, it does not have an expiry date and is not considered as dangerous goods.

The PLTĀ® Launching Unit has a toolbox of 11 different projectiles and 4 different launching tubes. The multi-purpose launching unit is perfect for an operator that wants to combine different projectiles for various operations or tasks without using more than one launcher.

In the maritime environment users typically choose the PLTĀ® Multi as deck equipment for operational reasons, stand by and to comply with SOLAS regulations. Some of the projectiles has specific purposes, like SOLAS LTA requirements, picking up lines, or for general purpose such as heaving a line from point A to B.

For land based activity, the PLTĀ® Multi is being used by fire departments, rescue organizations, power and mining plants, on construction sites, terminals and by police and military organizations. It is a preferred tool as it is easy to re-use and to practice with as well as its low maintenance cost.

The PLTĀ® Multi opens a wide range of possibilities for a user. We are happy to discuss solutions that can be helpful for you as a user. We can also adjust to your requirement and even tailor make a solution for you through our PLTĀ® Concepts department. We are committed to share our knowledge on pneumatic line throwers to solve your tasks.

Launching Units

PLTĀ® Launching Unit 300 Bars

The PLTĀ® Multi Launching Unit has an air cylinder that charges the pressure chamber of compressed air up to 300 bars (4350psi). If the air cylinder is filled up to 300 bars (4350 psi), it will supply the base unit with enough air to perform 6 max pressure launches.

For refilling to 300 bars (4350 psi), connect the PLTĀ® Air Cylinder to a standard 300 bar scuba diving (breathing air) compressor with standard 5/8ā€ threads according to DIN 477.
