Multiple Corer "MC 01-03"-Series
When undisturbed samples of the upper boundary layers between sea floor and the water column are a primary concern, the Multicorer celebrates 30 years of successful operations around the world. The traditional design is tried-and-tested and is now replaced by a newly developed generation with a more servicing-friendly design, reduced height and made entirely from V4A stainless steel. Thanks to the OktoMF system the equipment can be easily expanded to implement camera systems (with/without telemetry) and a variety of sensor systems.
 
As an Oktopus customer, you can specify the tube diameter, the number of tubes and the tube material for a wide range of samplers. We also offer a core tube optimised for CT scanners.
 
In addition, a wide range of accessories such as extruders, stoppers, replacement tubes, and wearing and spare parts is available.
