Underwater Sampling system
Seabot’s Suction Sampler is designed for taking biological samples using an ROV at depths down to 200 meters. The sampler is compact, lightweight and includes ten, two hundred milliliter sampler bottles. The sampler only requires a 12V power supply on the ROV for its operation.
CONCEPT OF OPERATION
Using electric power from the ROV, a centrifugal water pump pulls
water through a sample hose, and a two-hundred milliliter sample cup.
The pump is located on the cup outflow. When sampling is
complete, an electric rotation mechanism drives the carousel
sealing the previous cup and opening the next cup ready for
The ROV Suction Sampler pulls water, and biological samples into two hundred milliliter sample cups. The samples are trapped in the cups with a user selected filter size. Once sampling is finished, the
cup is rotated out of the water flow and sealed for subsequent analysis
