HAPS Corer


The KC HAPS BOTTOM CORER is highly suitable for taking well defined, undisturbed samples from hard as well as soft sediments.
This can be seen by a clear water phase above the sediment surface. Its weight of 150 kg (maximum load) demands winch operation
The HAPS is made of stainless steel (AISI 316) with electro polished surface. The sample tube (5) is made of stainless steel (standard), but can be delivered in transparent polycarbonate as well. In order to stabilize the HAPS in swell sea and to sample in sandy sediments weights can be mounted (1, 2, 3). The HAPS is made with permission from its original designer Dr. Ebbe Kanneworff, Marine Biological Laboratory, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
