Tech Tip: Deploying the SBE 32 Carousel
Cruise Season Starting? A reminder of how to care for your SBE 32 Carousel Water Sampler
- After every cast, prevent salt deposits by rinsing the entire Carousel, including the trigger mechanism, inside and outside of each bottle, and frame, with fresh water.
- If it will be more than a day until the next cast, remove the latch assembly. Soak the latch assembly in a bucket of fresh water and thoroughly rinse the top of the pylon with fresh water, to prevent salt buildup.
- Periodically, and if experiencing sticky latches, remove the latch assembly and soak it in a bucket of warm, soapy, fresh water; rinse with fresh water. If still sticking, open all the latches and place the latch assembly in the dishwasher, with dishwasher soap and a no-heat dry cycle.
- Periodically inspect the bottle tubing for tears and to insure the proper amount of tension.
- Store the Carousel with bottles closed to preserve the tension in the bottle tubing. If storing on deck, cover at least the latch assembly, and preferably cover the entire Carousel.
CAUTION: Do not oil the trigger mechanism!
For more details, including how to remove and replace the latch assembly, see Application Note 66 on our website.
