Verifying


Utility locating focuses on delivery of verifying mark-outs confirming as-built records and historical plans. Locating teams, who mark-out public and private buried structures, face many challenges and now use GPR to augment traditional locate methods.

GPR actively illuminates the ground detecting both metallic and non-metallic targets. GPR proves most effective in the challenging cases of non-metallic or complex, closely spaced installations. GPR not only responds to the buried pipe or cable, it can also detect a tracer wire even when broken plus sense soil disturbances that may be associated with prior installation excavations. All these advantages enable the LMX100 GPR system to deliver enhanced locating capability.


Verifying Gas Line Location

Verifying Gas Line Location

  Verifying the location of buried utilities is a common use of GPR. Gas lines are particularly important targets owing to the dangerous nature of the material carried. In many cases the gas piping is plastic. This study compares use of traditional electromagnetic locating and GPR for a metal gas pipe.
