CTD Handling Systems

Our tried-and-tested Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) Rosette handling systems are based on ‘SMART’ winch technology, specifically designed for the CTD market.

Our systems eliminate the cost and complexity of traction winch systems, and ensure sample integrity is maintained during the recovery of a CTD Rosette. The systems are designed for single operator use, which allows them to control the deployment and recovery of CTDs without involving other crew. The in-built motion compensation cancels out the ship’s roll and pitch, causing a smoother and safer CTD deployment and recovery.
