ManometerManometers that are glued in place on the inside of the glass housings to quickly check the status of vacuum (The protective shell can be modified in this regard, to visually check the vacuum right before a deployment without further disassembling efforts).
Protective shellsProtective shells for protection, storage, and ease of handling.
Mounting frameworkMounting framework with swiveling sphere fixings, rope, thimbles and shackles (EDDYGRIP system) to support mooring design.
Lifting aidsExperience has shown that hand carrying heavy glass hemispheres could sometimes be challenging. The proposed lifting aid might be helpful in this regard.
Protective tapeScotchrap is used to protect the TEROSTAT sealing tape from mechanical damage or from any other negative impact e.g. caused by sea water. Scotchrap Tapes have a 5-year shelf life (from date of manufacturer) when stored under the following recommended storage conditions:
Store in a clean dry place at a temperature of approx. 21°C (70°F) and 40 to 50% relative humidity. Good stock rotation is recommended.
Shelf-live becomes virtually unlimited when stored cool and dry (15°C / 40% rel. humidity).
