Double Plankton Net (Bongo)

Market: Experimental & Scientific Research
Product type: Plankton Net
Applications: Lac Sampling, Horizontal water sampling, Vertical water sampling, Plastic sampling, Ocean sampling
Lead time: Made upon order
The main purpose of the Double Plankton Net (Bongo) is to perform a double sampling of a specific water stratum while reducing the turbulences linked to the use of a simple
ring
. (2 different filtration accuracies)
  • The Bongo net consists of two identical nets that can be towed vertically or diagonally from a given depth to the surface.
  • It has the advantage of being able to make a double sampling of the same column, in order to freeze a sample for the future or to make a sampling of the same water column with two different filtration precision.
  • The net must be used with a 22Kg
    V-Fin depressor
    to create a negative pressure on the net.
  • It is composed of a cylindrical part from the opening of the net followed by a conical part to the tail. 
  • The nets are each laced to one of the two rings of the double
    stainless steel
    frame
    . The
    frame
    is provided with a single towing point, to reduce the disturbances caused by the flanges. A filtering cup is fixed at the end of each
    thread
  • The standard opening diameter is 60cm for each
    ring
    . Other sizes are available on request.
  • The length of each net is generally 250cm. Custom-made nets can also be manufactured.

Characteristics

Lifespan: Average Lifespan: 1 to 5 years
Complexity: Installation Complexity: Quick and easy installation that requires a minimum of two (2) people
Local Product: Product made by hand in Quebec
Warranty: Lifetime warranty covering manufacturing defaults
Maintenance: Dry after each use
Manufacture details: The net is made of ultra-strong and extremely precise
Nitex
filtration
mesh
. We have over 60 options of filtration
mesh
sizes varying from 1 to 5000 microns
The net mouth and and tail are reinforced with non-treated Cordura
fabric
1000 deniers on which
eyelets
are added (net mouth) and a clamping device (net tail) to hold onto the
cod-end
. Every seam is reinforced with 3/4in webbing to guarantee a ultra strong net
Ideal for capturing phytoplankton (smaller than 80 microns), zooplankton (60 to 600 microns) and other micro-organisms (500 to 5000 microns)
It is possible to add a chocking band on the net which if formed by passing a rope through small
stainless steel
rings sown within the net, thus allowing the user to close the net during operation
For nets with a diameter larger than 100cm, extra reinforced webbing is added on the lenght of the net to maximise it's structural integrity
Material: Precision Filtration
