The Sea-Bird SBE 32 Carousel Water Sampler enables reliable and user-friendly water sampling with the options of either 12, 24 or 26 position systems of varying bottle sizes. When accompanied by an accessory deck unit, the carousel provides water sampling and real-time CTD data acquisition in conjunction with any Sea-Bird profiling CTD (requires electro-mechanical cable and slip-ring equipped winch). When used with an accessory underwater unit, the carousel is operable autonomously with a Sea-Bird profiling CTD, and can be programmed to close bottles at specific depths, in an order specified by the user..
The carousel is available in three model options. The full-size SBE 32 includes a 12 or 24-position system, with a custom 36-position option. The compact SBE-32C, ideal for applications with limited vertical clearance, includes a 12-position sampler with bottles up to 8 liters. The sub-compact SBE-32SC is a smaller system that is suited to operation from small vessels, and includes a 12-position sampler with either 1.7 or 2.5-liter bottles.
