Sonardyne floatation collar
Sonardyne’s range of subsurface floatation collars enable acoustic navigation and positioning transponders to be deployed, moored on the seabed and then recovered to the surface.
Sonardyne’s range of subsurface floatation collars enable acoustic navigation and positioning transponders to be deployed, moored on the seabed and then recovered to the surface. The floats are compatible with all Sonardyne’s latest generation Compatt 6 and DPT Wideband transponders as well as previous generation Mk 5 and Mk 4 Compatts. They can be used with directional and omni-directional transducer types.
Manufactured from high performance materials appropriate to the required depth rating, each float assembly comes in two halves and is clamped around the transponder using stainless steel fixings. Bright colours make sure good visibility, either when subsea and viewed from an ROV’s camera or when floating on the surface prior to recovery.
Manufactured from syntactic foam core encapsulated within a high visibility polyurethane elastomer coating.
Compatible with Sonardyne Compatt 6, DPT, Mk5 and Mk4 Compatt transponders.
Lifting eyelet inserts incorporated to ease transponder deployment and recovery.
Designed to stack, not roll, on vessel deck.
Available in 1,000, 3,000, 5,000 and 7,000 metre depth ratings.
