Field tests - immersion test

Specific specimen geometries

Deploying artificial substrates in the field is a fundamental step for the final appraisal of materials for maritime application. From a biological point of view, the common assembling of plates and panels in the static immersion assay presents a severe constraint. For this reason we additionally offer the construction of custom-designed specific specimen geometries.

We thereby take into account expected characteristics of the future field of application (e.g. boat hull, pipeline, foundation structure, hollow spaces in machines, nets for mariculture).

Advantages

  • The specific specimen geometries improve the validity and significance of information in fouling control in the field with respect to its future application in the maritime environment.
  • Customers select specimen geometries that can be combined with other examination methods such as the flow channel.
