Bring on the Heat! Chicago, IL
GPRS was contracted by a local truck repair company to locate radiant heat tubes in several large areas. GPRS was able to locate all heat tubes by pairing GPR with our FLIR thermal imaging camera. The truck company was able to anchor in their new equipment safely after all scanning had been conducted.
All scanning conducted was also implemented through our SIM process. Click on this link to learn more about our industry leading SIM training and processes!
Our state of the art GSSI GPR equipment can send signals into concrete that send data back in real time. The signals are safe for workplaces so there is no need for any stop in work for floors below or around the scan areas. GPRS also uses the RD-8100 Locator to locate live power and radio frequency (RF) signals underground. We can also detect utilities in or under concrete using our transmitter box which sends out a frequency via induction or conduction with an exposed or known surface utility line.
“GPRS deploys the best equipment operated by skilled project managers who know how solve your subsurface locating issue. Since our inception, GPRS has completed hundreds of thousands of projects in North America. Our accuracy rate on these projects? Over 99%.” (www.gprsinc.com)

GPRS technicians are commonly called to perform a wide array of locating tasks, such as concrete scanning for rebar, mesh, conduits, radiant tube heating, post tension cables, and any other utility that may be buried. We also scan for private and public utility locates, underground voids or vaults, footings, buried foundations, and Underground Storage Tanks (UST’s). All these tasks are all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive manner.
Scan before you plan! This ensures worker safety and saves valuable time by targeting specific areas of concern. GPRS can provide GPS reports overlaid on Google Earth or overlay information on pre-existing CAD files for future building plans.
“Time is a primary currency traded on any given construction project. At Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, our everyday efficiency in operations allows us to respond to the immediate needs of our customers, often within 24 hours or less.” (www.gprsinc.com)
At GPRS, safety is one our #1 priority. When saw cutting, digging, or drilling the last thing you, or our technicians, want is to run into any problems. While you may think that there is nothing buried in the concrete or ground, better think again… There are an unfortunate number of people that call because they were proven wrong. The price of one of our technicians is well worth it compared to the costs of repairing a mishap later on.
