Sea-Bird SBE 32 Carousel Water Sampler

Image
The SBE 32 Carousel Water Sampler has been extensively deployed throughout the world’s oceans, where it has built a reputation for reliability and ease of use. With an accessory Deck Unit, the Carousel provides water sampling and real-time CTD data acquisition with any Sea-Bird profiling CTD (requires electro-mechanical cable and slip-ring equipped winch).

With an accessory underwater unit, the Carousel can operate autonomously with a Sea-Bird profiling CTD and can be programmed to close bottles at selected depths, allowing deployment using non-electrical wire or line.
