NexSens Galvanized Chain

Galvanized chain is used to construct mooring lines for buoy-based water quality applications requiring single or multi-point moorings.


  • Ideal for mooring NexSens data buoys
  • Galvanized steel construction
  • Provides corrosion resistance in fresh and salt water applications


When setting up a mooring system to hold a buoy, a heavy bottom chain is a necessity. This chain must be laid out on the bottom to set and hold the anchor properly, create a catenary curve, and absorb shock. A good rule of thumb for heavy chain length is 1.5 times the maximum water depth. A smaller sized chain or mooring line should be used to connect the heavy bottom chain to the data buoy at the surface.
