This tubular counting chamber is a standard manufacture, which fits almost any type of inverted microscope.
Counting chamber for Zoo plankton.
A high performance sediment sampler. Deploying the Day Grab to the sea, the automatic releaser is activated when the grab hits the bottom and the sample will be taken. The grab supports up to 22 lead weights, each 5 kg.
For calculating the amount of water passing through a plankton net.
The Ekman grab is used for collecting sediment and sludge samples.
The Epibenthic Sledge is a system for sampling benthic and benthopelagic faunas. The Epibenthic Sledge consists of a rectangular frame with a mesh net attached to it. When towed along the seabed, its weight scrapes into the benthos, collecting any organisms on the surface or in the first centimetres of sediment.
Application: The Haps Bottom Corer is highly suitable for taking well-defined, undisturbed samples from hard as well as soft sediments. This can be seen by a clear water phase above the sediment surface. Its weight of 170 kg (maximum load) demands winch operation.
The Kajak corer is designed for taking samples in muddy or half-hard sediment.
The frame of the sieve and the net are manufactured from AISI 316 stainless steel and electro polished.
The conical net, manufactured from Monodur Nytal. The plankton net is available in all mesh sizes.
A sturdy rake makes a useful tool for removing aquatic plants. Attaching a rope to the rake allows removal of a greater area of weeds. Raking literally tears plants from the sediment, breaking some plants off and removing some roots as well.
Internal thermometer (non-mercury) for registration of the in situ temperature. Temperature range between –10 and +60 °C. For 1,7 L Ruttner the thermometer is scaled -10 to +50 °C. The sampler is also available with no metallic parts inside. Drop messenger is included. Recommended depth: Max. 70 m, dismount the thermometer and the water sampler can be...
Application: Sediment traps are small containers placed in the water to collect particles falling toward the sea floor. The traps collect tiny sediment or larger accumulations called marine snow - made up of organic matter, dead sea creatures, tiny shells, dust and minerals.
A gravity corer for taking samples in sandy sediment featuring detachable core tube with a maximum length of 6 m (optional). Up to 12 m in soft or muddy sediment.
The frame is manufactured from 2 mm AISI 316 stainless steel with side and bottom dimensions of 20 x 25 cm. Mouth area and sample area are both 500 cm².
The water sampler is based on the Van Dorn design, and it has the same characteristic as the Beta™ Van Dorn samplers, suitable for sampling trace metals, organics and other chemical sampling.
The KC Van Veen grab is based on the Van Veen design. The grab is made of AISI 316 stainless steel and the surface is electro polished. Heavy-duty construction designed for all kinds of environment.
The winch can be used on small research vessels. Suitable for Kajak sediment sampler, small Van Veen and Ekman Grabs, Water samplers and other smaller equipment.
