the descender you link to seems to require threading the end of the rope through the device and then pulling the rope through, unlike conventional rappel devices. this is inconvenient and could be a problem if the end is frayed. also it looks like it has more friction that you might need (and is heavy!). better to get something like a Black Diamond ATC-XP plus Petzl shunt, or maybe a petzl Stop.
