FT510 Gravity Corer
The FT510 Feritech Gravity Corer offers an easy to use and extremely cost effective alternative to other coring techniques.
Our latest Gravity Corer is robust and simple to operate in almost any water depth. The design is based on proven concepts but with innovative improvements in offering increased survey productivity. Examples of which include the quick swap barrel release and adjustable weights to control penetration.
The strong stabilising head with integral fins ensures that the corer penetrates the seabed as close to vertical as possible. The system is supplied with configurable weights allowing for 49-816kg of additional weight (available in steel and lead), controlling penetration for a range of projects – coastal environments to deep water locations, and everything in between.
