GROUND PENETRATING RADAR (GPR)

The Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is the tool of choice for those who need to quickly and easily identify the presence of buried utility infrastructure, both metallic and non-metallic.

Modern advances in technology, particularly in the design and construction of buried utilities, have resulted in an ever increasing use of non-metallic materials. GPR Locator professionals know the difficulties associated with non-metallic utilities and that conventional locating tools leave you a few pieces short. So let the ‘Easy Locator’ help you fill in the missing pieces. GPR is the only technology available that does not require a physical connection to the utility, nor does it rely on radiating electromagnetic (EM) fields that may or may not be present or detectable.

GPR Main Applications

The ‘Easy Locator’ caused a revolution when it was originally released and quickly established itself as the GPR tool of choice for utility applications, such as:

  • Utility detection & marking
  • Underground Storage Tank (UST) detection
  • Locate service
  • Lost cover, valve, cable box or vault detection
  • And many more!With fast start-up and minimal set-up the Ground Penetrating Radar system can be rapidly deployed and the user can be out collecting real-time data at full walking speed within minutes of arriving at the job site. An optional feature allows images of the screen data to be saved in jpeg format which can then be exported via a USB thumb drive for use in field reports.

    CONCRETE RADAR SCANNING

    Construction professionals involved in the cutting, coring or drilling of concrete structures require a safe and reliable means of inspecting work areas. The concrete scanning system allows us to scan concrete structures simply and safely and present data clearly for real-time and in-the-box data acquisition, display and analysis. It is a quicker, safer and more cost effective option than other competing concrete scan systems or traditional radiographic testing methods.

    We can scan a concrete slab to identify the following:

    • Post-tension cables
    • Pre-stressed tendons
    • Structural steel reinforcement
    • Steel rebar
    • Concrete beams
    • Electrical conduits
