Technical instruction

Multi-corer with detachable legs, gyro-suspension capable for a sloop of 10 degrees, 6 pcs of polycarbonate tubes 600 mm long, Ø100 x 2,5 mm, 6 pcs of weights, each 10 kg, and a hydraulic damper.

The multi-corer is manufactured from laser-cut AISI 316 stainless steel plate.

The multi-corer rack, slide part, hydraulic damper, weight station and top and bottom plates are gyro-hinged, which secures vertical penetration of the sample tubes into the sediment.

The rack - 6 inclined, detachable legs made of square AISI 316 steel tubes,
40 x 40 x 3 mm are held together of 6 pcs of Ø15 mm horizontal steel bars mounted beneath.

Each leg has a footplate, dia. 320 mm, with 8 holes each Ø60 mm.

Total height of the rack: 2,12 m
Bottom diameter of the rack: 2,40 m

Each sample tube has a spring-loaded lid, which is in open position during the sample taking. For each core a spring loaded horizontally placed plate is mounted at the bottom plate and when the sampling is completed, they are pressed in position under the sample tubes. At the same time the 6 top lids will close. Both functions will secure the sample.

The top of the corer has a weight station with a capacity of 30 pcs 10 kg lead weights. Standard delivery comes with 6 pcs of weights.

The sample tubes are attached by a double lock-clamp and a close fitting device giving a good fastening and a quick tube change.

Max. penetration depth: App. 370 mm.
Full ocean depth. (6000 m)
