Millimeters: 445 x 279 x 127 (Length x Width x Depth)

HOW MUCH FLOTATION DOES THE NEBULUS PROVIDE?
1000 lbs (455 kg). The inflated Nebulus has 18 cubic feet (510 liters) of volume.

HOW IS THE NEBULUS INFLATED?
Manually, via a ripcord. The user pulls/jerks the large yellow handle on the side of the device. Doing so punctures two canisters, releasing CO2 into the device to inflate it. 

How quickly does the Nebulus inflate?
The device inflates in a two-stage process:
1. After the yellow handle is pulled, the device begins to inflate immediately. Within 30 seconds the device inflates to its deployed shape and volume.
2. Over the next couple of minutes, the device becomes more taut as residual CO2 fills the device.

How many times can the Nebulus be used before it needs to be recharged?
One time. Deploying the device punctures welds in the two CO2 bottles used to inflate the device, requiring them to be replaced before the device can be used again.

How do I get my Nebulus recharged?
The Nebulus must be sent back to JTW Associates to be recharged. At this point it is not user rechargeable.  Contact us for more information.

What is involved in the recharge process?
1. The user must deflate the device, fold it into a box and mail it back to JTW Associates, 21025 Heron Way, Lakeville, MN 55044. The user can remove the CO2 bottles/activation lanyard to save shipping weight (use a 9/16" wrench and then recycle the CO2 bottles as steel).
2. Once at JTW, the device is pressure tested, the CO2 bottles are replaced and the device is repacked.

How long does recharging take and HOW much does it cost?
1. Once JTW receives the deployed Nebulus device, the recharged Nebulus device can be back to the owner in 7 business days.
2. The cost to recharge a Nebulus device is $299.00 USD (plus shipping and handling).
