OceanPack™ Nutrient analysis (Rack 2)
The OceanPack™ Nutrient Rack is a complete laboratory for wet chemical nutrient measurements. In contrast to optical online sensors, wet chemical analyzers provide a very high resolution and a very low detection limit, as is required for scientific measurements in the open sea / blue water.
It includes an automatic, backwashable water filter, the nutrient analyzers, a refrigerator for the reagents, a supply of distilled or RO water and a waste water tank for the chemicals.
The reagent supply is sufficient for at least 4 weeks with a 20-minute analysis repetition time. The wastewater is highly diluted and can usually be drained outboard. The waste water tank must be used in protected areas or in ports. The fill level of all tanks is monitored electronically, in the event of an error, messages are sent and the analysis is interrupted.
The filter for the sample water is automatically backwashed regularly. The water system is also integrated into the automatic cleaning of rack 1.
The control and data acquisition is done by the Deck-Unit in rack 1.
Please note, that a regular service due to the wet-chemical method and a chemical lab is required. We offer free training in cooperation with SYSTEA, Italy.

User statements

„The instrumentation will greatly enhance the continuous oceanographic measurements made by the Belgica by taking advantage of the significant technological improvements since the design of the existing (salinity, temperature) systems.

 

It is quite simple: during navigation, sea water is pumped on board through a pipeline from the front of the ship. This water is automatically run through several instruments installed in one of the laboratories of the Belgica. Many parameters can now be measured continuously (salinity, temperature,…) including new important ecosystem parameters such as nitrate, phosphate, silicate, dissolved oxygen, CO2, turbidity, alkalinity and phytoplankton pigments.

 

In addition, the new equipment allows automatic acquisition and preservation of 16 water samples, rendering Belgica operations significantly more efficient by reducing onboard human resources. Data will be available soon in near real-time via MUMM’s public web site and following quality control, from the Belgian Marine Data Centre.“
