Legacy Flotation Technologies Products

Building the Best, Better.

In 2013, DeepWater Buoyancy acquired the rights and designs for legacy Flotation Technologies products.  Since then, we have been producing, improving and growing the Flotec product line, which has been the industry standard for decades.  We also stock parts for these legacy products and provide design and application assistance.  Through the power of continual improvement, DeepWater Buoyancy is building the best, better.

ADCP Buoys & Bottom Mounts

The world’s leading supplier of buoys and bottom mounts for ADCP deployment.

DeepWater Buoyancy is the world’s leading supplier of buoys and bottom mounts for ADCP deployment.  With a vast line of products for both deep water, shallow water and regions where trawling is common, no one else has the breadth of solutions and depth of experience for properly deploying ADCP buoys and associated instrumentation.  Contact us today to begin a conversation about your particular project requirements.

Manufactured from high-performance DeepTec® syntactic foam and fitted with 316L stainless steel and titanium hardware, spherical ADCP Buoys are designed to outperform and outlast conventional mooring flotation.
For a more extreme current application, turn to the StableMoor® line of buoys. These unique ADCP buoys are customized for your particular application.
These buoys are have the same rugged design as the spherical ADCP buoys, but have an elliptical shape for higher current applications.
These TRBMs may be deployed by free-fall, or by a diver or ROV. They have a double axis gimbal inside a buoyant recovery pod, and are designed to permit retrieval of all mounted instruments.
 Whether your bottom mount requirement is for a mid-frequency or high-frequency ADCP, we can accommodate you.
 Our in-house engineering and metal fabrication capabilities can identify a standard frame for your application or customize one to suit your needs.

DeepWater Buoyancy Oceanographic products are designed for the Teledyne RDI line of Marine Measurement products.
