Utilizes Ground Penetrating Radar and Electromagnetic technologies
Finds BOTH metallic and Non-Metallic structures.
Locate targets up to 5 meter depth.
Practical and efficient in confined spaces and open terrain
Terraprobe’s highly trained technicians can quickly and accurately determine the precise position of both metallic and non-metallic targets (, plastic and clay pipes, water, sewer and irrigation lines, cables, voids, and other subsurface features )up to a depth of 5 meters or more.
While the detectability of targets depends on a variety of conditions such as size, shape, and orientation of the target, subsurface material type and condition, as well as external radio frequency noise and interferences, Terraprobe has achieved an industry-leading 99% accuracy rate in finding its targets.
Utility location information is used to prevent damage to utilities in proposed excavation/drilling areas as well as for planning purposes by, Utility companies, Municipalities, general Contractors and Engineering firms.
Our service provides results in real-time and covers large areas quickly and cost effectively, with reporting requirements tailored to meet the needs of the client.
Terraprobe follows the methodology as prescribed in CVASCE 38-02 "Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data” produced by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
