Sediment trap 0,25 m²

28.650 - Sediment trap - 0,25 m²
28.650 - Sediment trap, gyro-hinged 0,25 m²:

A high volume sediment trap used to investigate the vertical flux of particles in the water column and the trap can be deployed in both oceans and inland waters. On a sloped seabed, the gyro-hinged design holds the funnel in vertical position, up to 45° (see pg. 3) depending on the positioning of the rack on the seabed.

The rack comes with 4 inclined, detachable legs made of square AISI 316 steel tubes, 40 x 40 x 3 mm which are held together with 4 pcs of Ø15 mm horizontal steel bars mounted beneath.

1 collecting bottle, capacity 5 L.

Maximum depth:
Full oceanographic depth.

Camera option:
For a sample depth of max. 500 m, it is possible to attach our video and light system 19.680 CAM (requires a bracket 28.650 BR for mounting).

28.650 - Sediment trap 0,25 m².
Depending of the rack's positioning on the sloped seabed the gyro-hinged construction allows an angle up to 45° while still keeping the funnel in vertical position.
Once the deployment line slackens, the curved rack goes in horizontal position, so it doesn't disturb the sampling.
Honeycomb, size of the square holes: 25 x 25 mm approx.
