The Elkins EE-1 EE-2 & EE-3 swivels features a rotating spindle which is located exactly within twin needle roller bearings with the inline forces being carried independently via a single heavy duty thrust race. The complete assembly is oil filled and due to its unique pressure balanced system can ensure freedom of movement even at the greatest ocean depths.
The Elkins QUICK-CLAMP™ is designed by the National Oceanography Centre and manufactured under license by Elkins Oceanic Services Ltd.
The device allows quick installation and release of instruments on steel wire moorings which means that moorings can be wound on and off winches more quickly, saving time and money and with added safety.
The system incorporates a simple but robust locking mechanism operated by one hand using an easy to operate, large push button release. The only preparation required is the fitting of small swage lock or screw on ferrules on the cable at the positions required.
Clamps are supplied to fit a range of instrument sizes up to 100mm diameter, although larger instruments can be considered to special order.
The EE-PC-1 & EE-PC-2 ROV Sediment Coring Devices were designed at NOCS.
They are designed to be operated by ROV’s to obtain sediment cores in shallow or deep water.
Available in two standard sizes, the push corers consist of a Perspex tube, one way valve and ROV T-bar handle.
