Product Name:RheoTune
Product Description:The RheoTune provides a proven track record in measuring in-situ density and yield strength profiles in (semi-) fluid muds. World-wide numerous harbour authorities rely on the Tune systems to keep their ports accessible at minimum dredging costs. The Tune family has recently been extended with the DensiTune Portable, a highly portable system to quickly obtain in-situ density profiles wherever you need them and from whatever platform. The Tunes are optimized to integrate with the Silas acoustic profiling system.

Operation Characteristics 
Sampling Method :The RheoTune and DensiTune P are versatile systems to be operated from the smallest vessel. To increase productivity an automated electrical winch or manual light weight winch with slip ring are available. The Tune systems are optimized to integrate with the SILAS seismic profiling system. The DensiTune P is especially suited for periodical calibration of this density mapping system.
Working principle of measurement technique:The theoretical background of tuning fork technology is implemented into a hands-on measurement device. Accurate In-situ density and yield-strength profiles are obtained calibration free.
Accessories:- Controlbox - Deckcable - Thermometer - Transportcase - Added weight (optional) - Intelliwinch automated winch system (optional) - Manual data winch with slipring (optional) - Silas acoustic density mapping system (optional)
Calibration methods:Calibration-free for density and yield stress. Calibration for other rheological parameters with area samples possible.
