SeaRobotics Delivers Sampling Equipment to CSA

SeaRobotics Corporation announces the successful design, construction and delivery of two pairs of sediment sampling grabs to the field operations division of CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), a Florida-based marine environmental consulting firm.

SeaRobotics designed, manufactured and delivered a pair of Smith-MacIntyre grab samplers and a pair of Van Veen grab samplers. Constructed in SeaRobotics’ new manufacturing facility, each grab is built from 316 stainless steel and electro-polished for resistance to corrosion and contamination.

In designing and building these grabs, SeaRobotics was able to provide our client with sampling equipment specially designed for its needs. It is a great example of the type of high quality manufactured product we deliver to our customers every day,” commented Don Darling, President of SeaRobotics.

Smith-MacIntyre grab samplers are commonly used to collect sediment of a coarser grain size, such as sand and shell hash. Van Veen grabs are clamshell bucket samplers designed to collect medium-grain sediment and clay sediments, commonly found on the continental shelf. CSA is adding the units to its inventory of environmental sampling equipment, deployed around the world for various sampling and monitoring efforts, the company explained.

The SeaRobotics samplers have been constructed with design improvements that will improve project safety and efficiency,” said Steve Viada, Senior Scientist at CSA. “We look forward to taking advantage of these design features in our environmental baseline studies and monitoring programs for our clients.”
