Metallic and non-metallic cable and pipe locator system

Locating metallic and non-metallic pipelines underground is vital to utility and leak detection. Utilities Technical Support employs the latest GPR technology to achieve this goal. GPR has the ability to respond to both metallic and non-metallic features exhibited by the subsurface. Thus, GPR is ideal for locating underground pipes and cables. Also, as opposed to conventional cable locating devices that could only detect cables and pipes carrying electrical currents, GPR detects plastic, asbestos and concrete pipes and structures in addition to metallic ones.
