The detection and mapping of buried utilities is a major application area for GPR. Using radio waves, GPR offers a rapid way to accurately locate metallic and non-metallic utilities as well as other ancillary targets such as underground storage tanks, splice pits and buried manholes. GPR complements traditional electromagnetic (EM) methods of pipe and cable locating by providing a complete underground picture.
The one solution for locating objects and mapping the underground world using SFCW ground penetrating radar technology.
The LMX100™ system provides an excellent example of a GPR system optimized for utility locating. The collapsible cart is constructed of tough non-metallic fiberglass components and features large diameter wheels and a highly-visible data display. The system is designed for easy shipping and storage. Set-up time from arrival on site to the start of data collection takes less than two minutes.
The LMX 200, the premier utility tool in the market today. The new and breakthrough Dynamic target enhancement technology, DynaT, acts like 3 GPR’s in one. DynaT optimizes views of small, medium and large targets.
Highly productive portable concrete GPR array, enabling quick object detection and superior data collection.
Electromagnetic location is one of the most cost effective and accurate location techniques. A signal generator is used to create a signal on the pipe or cable which can then be located and pinpointed with a locator receiver.
The UtiliTrac sets new standards in locating underground pipes and cables. Its ergonomic design and intuitive trigger controlled functions.
The SR-24 is a precision utility locating instrument with GPS and Bluetooth® technology for easy integration with external data capture devices.
The NaviTrack Scout® Locator is designed to solve the most demanding remote transmitter (sonde) locates using multi-directional locating technology.
SeekTech Inductive Clamp allows users to apply a signal to a cable or pipe when a direct connection is not possible. Compatible with all RIDGID® transmitters.
The RIDGID 5 Watt SeekTech ST-305 Line Transmitter lets you energize metallic lines for tracing and can transmit two frequencies simultaneously.
NEW SONDE & POWER LINE LOCATOR This is a Locator featuring frequencies of 512Hz/640Hz/33kHz, specifically designed for locating buried pipes and cables.
Locating manhole covers and valve boxes that might have been covered over during roadworks or construction projects is easy if you have the right equipment. Our advanced metal detectors and magnetometers have been optimised for locating lost cast iron manhole covers and valve boxes.
Plastic pipes with water under pressure require a different location technique using a ‘thumper’ and listening stick. The ‘thumper’ creates a distinctive pressure wave in the water in the pipe which can be traced with a reasonable degree of accuracy using an electronically amplified listening instrument.
Locating non metallic (PVC, ferro cement) and metallic pipes using acoustics.
To locate and trace plastic and non metallic pipes Sewerin developed the System Combiphon® which utilises acoustics as the detection principle.
The FerroTec FT10 is Sewerin’s newest magnetometer based instrument for locating lost manhole covers and valves. It uses changes in the earth’s magnetic field to detect large ferrous metal objects even when buried several meters underground.
The M130 valve box locator detects at depth and is not sensitive to surface metals, moisture or fluctuations in temperature. One button operation makes it easier to use the device; continuous readjustment is not necessary. Specific electronics reduce faulty readings due to crown caps, beverage cans or other small metal components.
Using compressed air pulsing at ultrasonic speed and a compressor powered venturi vacuum it is possible to quickly and efficiently excavate around sensitive pipes and cable equipment without risk of damage.
The Air-Spade is the perfect tool for digging where there is potential for damage to buried pipes or cables using conventional excavation techniques. With Air-Spade extremely precise excavation is possible at an unprecedented speed.
Smoke generators create a non-toxic smoke cloud that is useful when looking for leaks in sewers and storm-water drains.
Also called a thermohygrometer, hygrometer or humidity meter - measures humidity and material moisture reliably, quickly and precisely.
Fluorescent dyes are compounds designed to glow in the presence of an ultraviolet light source
