  • Zodiac Milpro™ inflation / intercommunication valves : specific inflation valves, providing the capacity to inflate the whole buoyancy tube at the same time from one point, and to secure each compartment during navigation. It also has an overpressure function, allowing the valve to relief overpressured air/gaz. The Zodiac Milpro™ inflation / intercommunication valve is the only system on the market to perform standard Underwater Caché procedure.
