Pneumatic Line Thrower

Pneumatic Line Thrower

A pneumatic line thrower is a device used for launching a lightweight line over a long distance at sea. The Line thrower establishes a connection between two points, typically between a ship and the shore, between two vessels, or for rescue operations. The device operates by utilizing compressed air to propel the line. This allows it to cover a longer distance accurately and with greater force than can be achieved by hand.
