Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2760967A1] The invention concerns a method and an apparatus for quick deflating of a chamber. Said apparatus (210) for quick deflating of a chamber (213) inflatable with an inflating fluid, said chamber having a predetermined inflating volume, comprising means for inflating said chamber inflatable with an inflating fluid at a predetermined inflating pressure is characterised in that it further comprises means (220) for quick deflating of said chamber (213) by suction of said inflating fluid at a high rate, said quick deflating means (220) being implemented when said chamber (213) is deactivated in particular to be transported with its reduced volume reduced to a minimum.
