Ground Penetrating Radar
This system is the world's latest technology for locating subsurface objects in concrete. Utilizing various antennae configurations re-enforcing steel, post tension cabling and voids can be located in concrete 36 inch thick. State of the art computer software can analyze three-dimensional.

This system is non-radiating which allows its use in airport terminals, hospitals, hotels, schools and prisons where removal of personnel is not feasible.

Recent old technology coupled with modern computer technology from Europe has brought a new concrete testing system into play. This system is known as FERROSCAN. Utilizing magnetics coupled with computer chip technology scans up to 7.5 inches deep into concrete slabs and walls or concrete masonry units (CMU) wall can be performed. This technological tool can locate and verify placement of reinforcing steel, prestressed cabling and post tension cabling.

Unlike radiography where each side of the concrete must be accessible to obtain a radiograph the FERROSCAN system requires access to one surface only.

Unlike radiography, where the hazards of radiation, requires all unmonitored persons be vacated the test area, the FERROSCAN is a nonradiation system. This is an invaluable factor when evaluating concrete in airports, hospitals, schools and prisons.

Utilizing traditional radiographic (X-ray) techniques, concrete thickness up to sixteen (16) inches may be tested to locate and verify placement of reinforcing steel and post tension cables. These techniques may be applied to concrete masonry unit (cmu) wall and cast in place wall sections.
