Instrument Frames

frames01.jpgMooring Systems, Inc. manufactures a wide range of frames for mounting and protecting oceanographic instrumentation. Extensive in-house steel fabrication capabilities and mooring engineering expertise, results in reliable frames built to meet the requirements of any underwater installation.

These rugged frames are constructed from type 316 stainless steel or titanium round bar with upper and lower bails to accept shackles for attachment to the mooring line. Isolation bushings and anodes are used to provide additional protection against corrosion. A simple clamp set allows easy assembly of the main pressure case and remote battery housings.

Frames are available with syntactic buoys to suit different mooring applications and dynamics.
