For over 20 years, Aquatec Group has been designing and manufacturing instrumentation for observing suspended sediment, including the market leading AQUAscat acoustic profilers. Now Aquatec is expanding beyond suspension with the new Sediment? Solved range, with the introduction of products from KC-Denmark for the collection of suspended, bedload and deposited sediment, including grabs, corers and sediment traps. Aquatec can now offer a complete range of oceanographic and environmental instruments for observing and collecting sediment.
