Following the successful launch of Aquatec’s Sediment? Solved range of products for the collection of suspended, bedload and deposited sediment, Aquatec is pleased to announce the addition of a new corer from MBT GmbH, MacArtney’s German subsidiary. The Frahm Sediment Sampler is designed to close the gap between the short cores sampled with multicorers and the longer cores of the gravity corers. In fact, with carefully selected weights, the bottom water can be sampled together with the sediment cores. The sampler was originally developed by the Leibniz-Institut für Ostseeforschung Warnemünde (IOW) and is now manufactured under license by MBT GmbH – MacArtney Germany.

Andy Smerdon, Managing Director, said ‘We have been working with MBT GmbH – MacArtney Germany for many years and are delighted to include their innovative corer in our Sediment? Solved range. Our customers now have a wider selection of corers to meet their needs.’ Find out more on our Sediment? Solved home page.
