CTI has developed proprietary vibracore sampling systems that are deployed from dedicated trailered vessels.
Our systems are deployable in remote areas, where it may be difficult and/or expensive to deploy larger systems.
The CTI-1200 and CTI1500 Vibracore Sampling Systems are designed to acquire 10 cm diameter core samples from depths of up to 5 meters below the sediment/water interface to a maximum water depth of 3 to 90 feet as currently configured.
Our vibracore units provide the operator visual/audio and digital feedback as the unit takes each sample.
CTI’s vessels for vibracoring:
CTI’s vessels are capable of deploying both vibracore samplers and benthic/ sediment samplers without re-rigging. CTI’s winches allow for grab sampling to water depths of 300 meters.
Each vessel is equipped with processing tables and wash-down hoses for grab sample processing.
Grab samplers are deployed from a side mounted davit capable of handling up to 500 pounds (225 kg) maximum weight.
CTI vessels have been chartered for deployment of oceanographic equipment. In this case, the quick connect vibracore sampler is stored allowing full operational deck space for deployment of equipment using the bow-mounted A frame. Clearance to the deck of up to 12 feet (4 meters) is possible. Lifting capacity varies from 1000 lbs. (450kg) to 1500 lbs. (675 kg) depending on the vessel.
Both CTI vessels offer large uncluttered deck space with a stern mounted heated wheel houses. The 30’ vessel (Miscou Banks) offers a head, fresh water, microwave and fresh coffee!
