OSIL have produced a 30m Giant Piston Corer for the First Institute of Oceanography (FIO), State Oceanic Administration (SOA), China.

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.
