Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a method of subsurface radar scanning that is used to carry out non-destructive inspections of the ground.
The radar is fast and reliable, and uses radio frequencies to map images of underground features. The data collected from the radar is then used to construct a two-dimensional or three-dimensional view of the subsurface.
Safety First Service Locators uses Ground Penetrating Radar to locate:
All types of conduits, pipes, concrete, and metal (even if they have no services in them)
Other underground anomalies
Electromagnetic Pipe and Cable Locators
Electromagnetic Pipe and Cable Locators perform non-destructive inspections of the ground. They are used to map metallic pipes and utility cables, and for clearing drilling and excavation sites.
Our Electromagnetic (EM) equipment consists of a separate transmitter and receiver, and provides a good depth of range. The transmitter emits a radio frequency electromagnetic field that induces secondary fields in nearby metallic pipes and cables. The receiver detects the fields and accurately locates and maps the pipes.
With a wide range of frequencies at our disposal, we are able to identify hidden pipe or cable connections underground and provide approximate depth estimates.
Safety First Service Locators uses Electromagnetic technology to locate:
Metal objects such as pipes
Private cable networks
Fibre optics with tracer
