Jotron Hydrostatic Release Unit for EPIRBs - Hammar EPRIB H20 HRU - Hammar H20 E Hydrostatic Release  for Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons

The Jontron Hammar H20 Hydrostatic Release Unit (HRU), the premier hydrostatic release unit is designed to automatically activate*. Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) in critical situations. This innovative device streamlines rescue operations, increasing the chances of saving lives. Widely trusted by 50% of the world's EPIRB manufacturers, the Hammar H20's free-float function ensures swift activation upon water pressure increase if your vessel encounters an emergency. The unit's cutting-edge design replaces traditional rope slings with a specially developed plastic bolt, guaranteeing a secure hold until activation.

User-friendly and cost-effective, the Hammar HRU H20 Jotron minimises storage expenses and ensures easy installation, reducing downtime for your customers. As the largest-selling hydrostatic release unit globally, its simplicity, reliability, and safety features have earned it widespread approvals. The Hammar Jotron H20 is made from rust-resistant glass fiber-reinforced nylon, eliminating the need for annual service, maintenance, or spare parts. With a focus on environmental responsibility, the Hammar H20 E is 97% recyclable, aligning with sustainable practices.

*Prior to installation, it is crucial to mark the Hydrostatic Release Unit (HRU) with the relevant two-year approval mark, counting from the installation date. In the event of a vessel sinking, a spring-loaded blade within the HRU will precisely sever the securing bolt at a water depth ranging from 1.5 to 4 meters. This action ensures the unrestricted buoyancy of the Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB), optimising its functionality during maritime emergencies.

Key Features & Equipment Benefits:

  • Seamless Fit: Specifically designed for compatibility with Tron 40AIS, Tron 40VDR, Tron 60S, Tron 60GPS, and Tron 60AIS EPIRBs.
  • Automatic Activation: The H20 E HRU ensures swift and automatic activation of Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) in emergency situations, streamlining rescue operations.
  • Reliable Hydrostatic Release: Utilising advanced hydrostatic technology, the HRU guarantees reliable release and deployment of the EPIRB in the event of a vessel sinking.
  • Spring-Loaded Blade Mechanism: Equipped with a spring-loaded blade, the HRU precisely cuts the securing bolt at a water depth of 1.5 - 4 meters, enabling the EPIRB to float freely and transmit distress signals.
  • Free-Float Function: The HRU's free-float function ensures optimal performance, allowing the EPIRB to rise to the surface and initiate distress signal transmission to satellites.
  • Global Manufacturer Trust: Preferred by 50% of the world's EPIRB manufacturers, the Hammar H20 E is widely trusted for its reliability and efficiency in critical maritime situations.
  • Easy Installation: User-friendly handling and simple installation procedures minimise storage costs and reduce downtime, making it a practical and efficient choice for vessel owners.
  • Two-Year Approval Mark: Before installation, the HRU must be marked with a two-year approval mark, ensuring compliance with safety regulations and guidelines.
