Vortex marine growth sampling tool is designed to remove samples of marine growth from it’s habitat, suck the samples from the removal area and contain the samples in one of seven
numbered sample bags for the purpose of recovery to deck and further scientific analysis of the samples.

The tool is used in conjunction with a vortex dredge pump and 2 ½ inch venturi to create the vacuum needed suck the samples to the bags.

Sample ‘bags’ are built with cam lock fittings to minimize on deck time of the ROV when swapping out used sample bags for new ones. Sample bags are made of an inner liner with a
sewn mesh with holes of approximately 1mm x 1mm square. The outer bag is a woven nylon mesh of approximately 1mm x 1mm square. The outer bag is only in place to protect the inner
liner and its contents. The outer bag is re used on the next sample by fitting a new inner liner to lessen environmental footprint through recycling the outer bag.
