pCO2 Subsea

The OceanPack™ pCO2 Subsea Analyzer was developed for precise measurements in the deep sea. It is very small and easy to handle. It can be applied on stationary monitoring stations or equipment racks like a Profiler, ROV or AUV.

LI-COR® produces LI-840x analyzers for SubCtech, which are built in the MK2 exclusively for scientific demand. The analyzers are pre-installed and configured for the user. The auto-calibration allows long-term operations.

The Flat-Silicone-Equilibrator can be run under extreme conditions and even inough seas difficulties do not occur.

Equipped with a data logger more probe heads can be connected. The raw or calibrated and processing data is saved and transmitted in real-time.

Benefits

  • Handy design: small size and low weight
  • No or little post-processing necessary
  • No difficult setup required: quick and easy installation (just connect the power and e.g. data cable)
  • Our exclusive cooperation with LI-COR® Biosciences guarantees the latest technology
  • Best accuracy and long-time stability
  • Can be operated unattended for a long time
  • Easy handling: intuitively usable design
  • Ready to run: low initial and running costs
