OSIL supplies multiple corer to Chinese XMU University
Monday, Nov 06, 2017
Global seabed sampling experts Ocean Scientific International Ltd have delivered a 12 station Multiple Corer to XMU University in China.

The hydrostatically damped Multi Corer is capable of collecting up to 12 samples simultaneously, which include a high-quality sediment sample and the overlying supernatant water.

The well preserved samples consistently retrieved by users ensures that the OSIL Multiple Corers enjoy a privileged position as the primary corers for environmental impact assessment worldwide, and are universally acknowledged as being the only way of reliably collecting a truly undisturbed sediment sample from the seabed.

The corer is constructed from stainless steel and features detachable core assemblies, which enables the core tubes (or if necessary the entire core tube assembly) to be removed from the corer for analysis or storage. The core tubes are sealed top and bottom once the sample has been taken, allowing rapid retrieval of the corer without jeopardizing sample integrity.

The corers are available in a 600mm or 800mm length core tube specification. Delivery times for the corers and spares are low, meaning last minute cruises can be catered for and systems can be kept in constant use for many years.

OSIL have an abundance of global experience in the construction and operation of a wide range of sediment coring equipment, including the industry standard Multi Corer and the unique Giant Piston Corer which is capable of achieving cores up to 60m in length.  OSIL also offer a full design, build and implementation service for all of their heavy offshore equipment.
