Ground Penetrating Radar Scan Performed
GPRS - of California was contacted by a contractor working at LAX Airport to perform concrete scanning (“x-ray) in Los Angeles, CA. This work was performed on a concrete slab that was going to be removed for the installation of an elevator. The contractor did not know what was inside of the slab and did not want to damage important conduits that could be operating vital components of the airport and also wanted to minimize the amount of rebar that was cut. Concrete scanning was used to check the concrete slab in order to locate rebar and conduits. GSSI GPR equipment was used to precisely locate the rebar and conduits and their locations were painted onto the slab. GPRS also uses Radio Detection to detect or locate live power readings from conduit in order to help differentiate between conduit and rebar. We were able to mark conduit onto the slab with red paint and rebar with white paint so the contractor could clearly see what was contained in the concrete and avoid damage.
Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes prior to core drilling, drilling for anchor bolts, or saw cutting. The concrete imaging process is entirely non destructive and free of radiation or health hazards. Please contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems - GPRS to learn how we can assist with your project.
