Pop-Up Buoy Recovery System
DeepWater Buoyancy’s Pop-Up Buoy Recovery System (PUB) allows for direct retrieval of seabed packages, such as anchors, anchor lines, and bottom-mounted frames with instruments. Once the acoustic release is activated and completes its disconnection, the buoy lifts free from the canister and rises to the surface. A synthetic line connects the buoy directly to the framework of the seabed item and allows for retrieval.
The standard PVC canister holds 75 meters of 1/4″ synthetic line. (Other line lengths are available upon request.) The recovery buoy is made from high-strength DeepTec® solid syntactic foam which is finished with an abrasion-resistant, polyurethane elastomer coating.
The canister subassembly has attachment features to permit various mounting configurations, including easy mounting to our BTM-AL50 tripod bottom mounts.
Our standard recovery systems are shown below. We also offer custom recovery systems.
