The Pneumatic Line Thrower (PLT) R-230 is intended used as a working tool for establishing line connections from boat to boat, boat to dock or pier etc. No sparks, therefore can be used in an explosive environment.

The base unit contains a built-in air cylinder for filling of compressed air up to 200/300 bars (2900/4350psi). This is sufficient for 4/6 shots before refilling is necessary. The air cylinder is fitted with standard fittings for diving and BA-equipment for filling of dry clean air from a high-pressure compressor.

Four projectiles and one training projectile come with the PLT. The projectiles are made of ABS plastic with aluminium inner tube. The projectiles are filled with 240m (263yd) nylon line, and can be reloaded and re-used. The Training Projectile is made of POM-plastic with a rubber tip. It does not carry the line inside, but a line box.
