GPRS Locates Electrical Conduits & Communication Prior to Saw Cutting - Hartville, Ohio

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on site by a general contractor to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan at the Hartville Centre Plaza in Hartville, Ohio. The contractor needed to saw cut a 150ft trench for new plumbing. The contractor needed to know if there were any conduits in the area to avoid saw cutting through them. GPRS located electrical conduits, main electric, and communication in the saw cutting area. The conduits were painted on the surface with depth indications so that the contractor could safely saw cut without hitting the conduits. Call GPRS before you saw cut or core drill the concrete and we will keep you safe! The picture below shows three conduits in the area to be saw cut.

The picture below shows the main electrical and communication in the same trench to the left and a conduit on the right.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Equipment

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

GSSI SIR – 3000
GPRS uses a Geophysical Survey Systems Inc. (GSSI) SIR-3000 Radar unit. This is the most advanced GPR available. It allows for onsite interpretation, as well as stores data for later processing. This equipment is self-calibrating, allowing more precise depth and location measurements.

1600 MHz Antenna
This antenna allows data collection to a maximum depth of approximately 18”, depending on concrete conditions Ground Penetrating Radar Systems is the best way to ensure the locations of reinforcement and conduits prior to saw cutting/drilling through concrete.
