OSIL announce 3 axis accelerometer to assist Piston Coring

Leading deep sea sediment corer manufacturers Ocean Scientific Ltd (OSIL) have released a convenient accessory for their Giant Piston Corer, an accelerometer, which will aid operators with deployments.

OSIL announce 3 axis accelerometer to assist Piston CoringThe accelerometer can calculate the attitude of the corer head on penetration of the corer into the seabed, and the penetration rate of the barrel string, which will assist operators with multiple deployments in the same location by ensuring optimal deployment conditions and sample recovery. The accelerometer is housed in a hard anodised aluminium canister that is rated to full ocean depth.

The Giant Piston Corer from OSIL (Ocean Scientific International Ltd.) is a rugged and reliable system, which can achieve up to 60m core samples in soft cohesive sediments and muds. The system is a modular construction with a unique integral piston, which reduces internal friction and prevents plugging. The corer can be manufactured from carbon steel or stainless steel, and is a much sought after tool for the study of marine sediments.

Ocean Scientific International Ltd. have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience in designing, planning and installing customised coring systems, and can pair the system with a variety of different handling systems to suit the existing vessel layout, equipment and available deck space.
