Mt. Holly, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/18/2014 -- As structures age, utility lines and other objects can change in material, or shift from their original position. To ensure there are no hazards when leading up to an excavation project, Atlantic Subsurface Imaging, LLC is pleased to announce they are now utilizing ground penetrating radar technology for clients in Delaware. Depending on how long the concrete has been in place, GPR is an innovative technique that avoids tearing up the material, using radar pulses to detect reflected signals of hazardous objects, producing a 3D image for accurate analysis.
There can be a buildup of debris, an old storage tank, or buried utilities that can affect the safety of the concrete excavation. Their ground penetrating radar in DE will locate a variety of objects, including problems with the soil, and depth of the obstacles. Clients can be confident that Atlantic Subsurface Imaging, LLC is using a non-hazardous technique as the GPR uses just one percent of the power that a cell phone emits. The technology requires the engineers to access just one side of the concrete to get an accurate image of the subsurface. Though it depends on the material being inspected, GPR can penetrate the concrete at depths of 18 inches or more.
The engineers can use this technology at numerous man-made structures, from buildings to bridges to roads to avoid any unwanted problems when tearing up the concrete. When detecting images on the subsurface, they are stored on a portable device where detailed reports of the findings can be created. They will mark areas where they see a shift in either metallic or non-metallic utilities with a survey flag, and present their findings to clients, clearly explaining what the images mean. GPR is an effective, quick, and safe way of completing accurate concrete inspection in NJ and DE. To hear more about their services, or to inquire on a free estimate for the project, please contact the company today.
