Product Description

Hydrostatic Release Unit

McMurdo Hydrostatic Release for Catagory 1 EPIRB 'BreaktHRU' - the Hydrostatic Release Unit (HRU) Kit from McMurdo. Smaller that other HRUs currently available, BreaktHRU is unique in its use of a small pyrotechnic charge, which is used to enable EPIRBs to automatically float free.


  • Compact
  • Classified non-hazardous
  • Complies with the latest SOLAS and IMO resolutions
  • Fits the footprint of existing HRUs
  • Service life of two years

Using technology developed exclusively by McMurdo, the pyrotechnic charge is used to activate the HRU when it is submerged in water < 13 feet. Once activated the EPIRB is automatically released - it's as simple as that!
