The Subsalve Professional Lift Bags are open bottom, balloon shaped bags with a single attachment point are easy to use in construction, heavy and light salvage, and many offshore tasks.
The Subsalve USA Professional Lift Bag began with a one-of-a-kind assignment from the US Navy to develop a flotation device that would dependably withstand particularly abusive conditions. Subsalve developed the 5-ton Deep Ocean Lift Bag to have unprecedented strength, low elasticity and superior resistance to abrasion and chemical attack. This bag is now Subsalve's standard Professional Lift Bag design.
Similar in shape to an inversed water droplet at the moment of breakaway, this unique design provides maximum lifting capacity with the least total bag weight. It also provides an even distribution of stress over the fabric surface.
Each bag is equipped with all necessary hardware and is ready for immediate use. All Lift Bags are tested prior to shipping, and must meet rigorous U.S. Department of Defense requirements.

How do I dump the air out of my lift bag?
There is a black Plunger Dump Valve on the top of the lift bag that releases the air from the lift bag. You can control the ascent of the lift bag by pulling the lanyard that is connected to this valve.
If you are using an Enclosed Floatation bag or Salvage Pontoon, you can find the Plunger Dump Valve on the side or corners of the lift bag.
Does the PDV Plunger Dump Valve automatically vent air?No. The PDV is designed to be used on an open bottom lift bag so automatic release of air is not required. The system is designed to have the diver vent air by pushing the dump button located on top of the valve or by pulling the lanyard at the bottom of the bag.
