GPR concrete scanning offers a number of advantages over traditional X-ray scanning. It is non-invasive, takes up little space on site, and can even be used for spot analysis when quick reports are needed. Additionally, there is no need to evacuate a construction site for fear of exposing other workers to radiation. GPR signals can penetrate most materials, including plastic, wood, and voids.
The MALÅ CX Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) concrete scanning system is designed for non-destructive investigation and imaging of concrete and other man-made structures. This system can detect changes in the subsoil and provide accurate results without any additional steps. It is also possible to perform quick scans of a large area with significant savings in time and labour costs compared to the X-ray concrete scanning procedure.
Scanning concrete to locate underground utilities or mapping utilities embedded in concrete slabs can be a difficult job. Construction professionals involved in cutting, drilling or coring concrete structures need a safe and reliable means of inspecting work areas to locate and identify hidden items that may cause damage to machinery or pose a hazard to the operator or the structure itself during these activities.
Ground penetrating radar is vital to the safety of personnel and the success of new and existing concrete construction, utility placement, traffic control and underground utility repair. With GPR technology, you can be sure that your project includes existing concrete with structural or utility elements without exposing other workers to radiation.
