80.250-50 Box Corer 2500 cm², 50 cm penetration.

The KC-Denmarks box corer's series is a marine geological sampling tool for soft sediment in lakes or oceans. It is deployed from a research vessel with a deep sea wire and suitable for any water depth. It is designed for a minimum of disturbance of the sediment surface by bow wave effects which is important for quantitative investigations of the benthos micro- to macrofauna, geochemical processes, sampling of bottom water or sedimentology.

The KC box corer frame is manufactured from 100 x 100 x 6 mm square AISI 316 steel tube and electro polished.

Our KC-Box corer 2500 cm², 50 cm penetration, is also available with 60 cm penetration (80.250-60).

 

Dimensions:

Height, loaded: 255 cm. Height, released: 420 cm. Bottom frame: (released position): 178 x 178 cm. Bottom frame: (loaded position): 178 x 220 cm. Penetration depth: 50 cm. Maximum weight: 1450 kg with 8 additional lead weights. Finish: Electro polish. Weight: 1050 kg.

80.300-50H

Small transport carriage for transporting of the sample tubes, the carriage is a hydraulic life made with an AISI 316 stainless steel cover.

Once the core sample is ready to get replaced, the inner shovel is mounted, and the outer shovel is removed, this make room for the carriage to be deployed and the sample tube extracted from the corer. Once the carriage is placed underneath the box corer, a strap is placed around the sample tube and tightened, then the carriage can be removed from the box corer with it's sample.
