161-Series High Pressure Lifting Air Bags Operating Instructions
Made of Kevlar® reinforced *NR-SBR rubber compound.
* NR = Isoprene rubber, natural. SBR = Styrene-butadiene rubber.
Operating Temperature: -40°F to 130°F
For lifting large objects and delicate structures
such as aircraft, aluminum vehicles or other soft structures. Medium
-pressure, high-lift, lifting bags exert a low concentrated lifting
force over a wide area.
Medium pressure lifting bags are used when
higher lift is required. Large footprint and low pressure exert soft
force on the load. Ideal for small airplanes, boats, aluminum
structures, or soft side box vans or trailers.
Use lifting bags to lift, shift or stabilize a
load. Use in pairs (side-by-side) for twice the lifting capacity. Use
lifting bags for light aircraft recovery or rescue.
. All controllers are fitted with the over-pressure safety relief valve. Medium pressure heavy lifting air bags can be inserted under objects with as little as 2" (50mm) clearance. Capacities up to 26,000 Lbs (11,902 kg). Use for heavy load lifting, shifting, leveling or as padded supports.

*Inflatable Plug Warning: Maximum head pressures that a pipe plug may restrain can only be estimated. Slippage is influenced by many factors including fluid in the pipe, coefficient of pipeline friction, pressure required to inflate the plug, and accuracy of pressure gauges. Generally, a Multi-Flex™ Inflatable Plug inserted fully into pipeline will begin slipping between 50% and 80% of the inflation pressure if it has an inflated pipe contact length of 1 ½ to 2 times the diameter, but even a head pressure of 50% of the inflation pressure may cause slippage with some liquids. The inflation pressure is also subject to temperature change and debris or protrusions in the pipeline that could rupture the plug. The inflation pressure should be monitored and plugs anchored and/or mechanically blocked when slippage could cause property damage or injury. NEVER use a test pressure greater than the capacity of the weakest pipe or component in the system. NEVER use an inflatable plug when its failure could cause injury.
