GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar)


A GPR system radiates short pulses of a high frequency radio signal into the ground from a transmitting antenna. The antenna receives the electrical pulse produced by the control unit, amplifies it and transmits it into the ground or other medium at a particular frequency dependent on the application and depth penetration.  The radio signal travels into the ground or concrete and interfaces with the utility or structure of a different dielectric constant. A portion of the energy is reflected back to the transmitting antenna on the surface.  The control unit on the GPR system measures the time it takes for the radio signal to travel to and from the target, indicating its depth and location.

The data is displayed on the control unit in real time where it can be interpreted by our technician. GPR is the preferred non-destructive technology for subsurface locating today as it does not emit any harmful radiation and no material needs to be removed from the scanning area prior to the scan. GPR is most commonly used to verify:

• Metallic and non-metallic (plastic) pipes and conduits

• Underground storage tanks (UST)

• Rebar and rebar patterns

• Post-tension cables

• Utilities (including water and radiant heat lines)

• Structural integrity of bridges and roads

• Void detection

• Slab thickness

• Unmarked grave sites

Electromagnetic E.M. Utility Locating


An electromagnetic locator is used for tracing underground utility lines and metallic pipes. These utility locators consist of two main parts, a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter emits a frequency selected by the operator that induces onto nearby pipes and cables. The receiver detects these radio frequencies, and the operator is able to accurately locate and trace the pipes and cables.

Electromagnetic locating can be used for:

  • All ground disturbances
  • Commercial and residential construction
  • Preconstruction – planning and design
  • Locating of Gas, Electrical, Telecommunications and Fibre Optics
  • Storm, Sewer, and Sanitation

Concrete Scanning Solution


 
A handheld digital x-ray solution. We are able to quickly and accurately detect metallic materials. within concrete. The x-ray source is a lightweight generator that operates on its own removable battery pack. The source produces short x-ray pulses which are reflected back by the re-bar or other metallic material within the concrete and the results are produced on a digital display with no film required and the location of the rebar or utility can be drawn on the concrete surface.
