Abstract: Sea surface temperature and salinity are important measured parameters in oceanographic observation.This paper puts forward a new type of anti-winding thermohaline sensor float, which consists of a floating body,rotating shaft, reducing rocking plate and other components. The floating body can be rotated independently,reducing the probability of winding of the whole thermohaline system and cables due to turbulent water flow. The reducing rocking plate can enhance the stability of the float. The spoiler can prevent float rotation, and protect the float from hitting. The authors modify the "pulley" type installation method by installing guide rod to make the float move along the guide rod under linear motion. With improved "pulley" type installation, this float can effectively prevent from winding with thermohaline sensor cables. This method, both simple and reliable, can be widely applied in ocean observatories.
