REVERSE ENGINEERING DESIGN OF REMOTE WATER SAMPLER

Enterprise Assist: Titan Environmental Surveys Ltd

Research and development project: Titan Environmental Surveys Ltd

SEACAMS contact: Daryn Taylor

 

Titan Environmental Surveys Ltd specialise in gathering data relating to all aspects of the marine environment. The company approached SEACAMS to resolve technical difficulties concerning their HydroCamel water samplers. SEACAMS provided initial support through its in-house expertise in Engineering Analysis & Design, firstly dismantling and recording the design of the HydroCamel and secondly producing a 3D CAD Model for further technical analysis, finalising with a report about the HydroCamel technology with suggestions for design improvements. The initial SEACAMS assistance culminated with a Collaborative Research and Development project to optimise the design of the HydroCamel. This involved improvement of the electronic control unit and optical encoder connection, as well as reassembling and testing performance of the HydroCamel. Engineering drawings were provided for additional design improvement modifications.
