Affordable Coastal & Deep Water Buoyancy

Significantly enhances data set quality from moored current meters

An improved mooring system for current meters and other oceanographic instrumentation.

Benefits

  • Unmatched mooring stability provides the best in instrument platforms.
  • Virtually eliminates vortex shedding effects which are common with spherical floatation.
  • Eliminates the potential for the measurement errors associated with mooring vibration.
  • Substantially reduces mooring excursions and inclinations.
  • Significant improvement to depth keeping characteristics.
  • Self-compensating for mooring inclination and flow direction.
  • Reduced buoyancy requirement due to lower mooring frontal area.
  • Supplied complete with mooring tension/swivel hardware.
  • Supplied complete with buoyancy or purchasers can utilize their existing VinyFloats.
