Double Van Veen Grab 

 

The Double Van Veen Grab is designed to carry out comparable sampling where, for example, samples for chemical and also biological analysis are needed from the same location. This multi purpose sampling tool is ideal for deep water operations halving the ship-time required to acquire sample replicates.

 

Made of stainless steel the grab can be adjusted with lead weighted ballast to assist operations in strong currents which can be mounted on both the backs of the buckets. The two pairs of stainless steel arms increase the tension applied to the buckets whilst being close and can also be weighted to increase control in strong currents.

 

Both buckets have hinged flaps at the top to allow the scientists access to the undisturbed sample prior to emptying the grab. Each bucket has the capacity to collect samples of approximately 12L.
