The easily operated 0.1m sq Van Veen Grab for the collection of sediment samples is available for rental from OSIL. This model has hinged access flaps in the tops of both buckets to enable the sub sampling of the sediment contained in the buckets prior to the emptying of the grab.
Additional ballast to assist in the sampling of compacted sediments, and allowing the grab to be deployed in strong currents, can be implemented through the use of lead ballast weights mounted on the backs of both buckets and also on to both arms.
0.1m sq weighing 25kg.
Manufactured in 316 stainless steel.
