Locate Hidden Utilities with GPR Scanning in BC 

Accidentally hitting a public utility, such as cable lines, natural gas, or a water main, is not only dangerous, but costly to repair. As lighter plastics are being used to support utilities, it is becoming more difficult to detect underground utilities with standard locating equipment. If the nature or ground composition of your worksite makes it a challenge to locate hidden utilities in Salmon Arm and the surrounding region, you can call in the state-of-the-art ground-penetrating radar (GPR) locating services of Ironman Directional Drilling Ltd.

For helping in locating utility and non-utility structures that are undetectable using standard techniques, call Ironman Directional Drilling. Our advanced ground-penetrating radar services are available to all areas of the Okanagan Valley, Fraser Valley, and BC Interior.

Advanced Ground-Scanning Capabilities

We use the premier ground-penetrating radar on the market today — the LMX200™ from Sensors & Software Inc. This advanced GPR can detect non-metallic pipes, such as PVC, asbestos cement, and the latest lightweight polymers. The LMX200™ can detect and map:

  • Concrete storm and sewer systems
  • Utilities with failed tracers
  • Subsurface storage tanks and drainage tiles
  • Septic system components

The LMX200™ can even locate non-utility subsurface structures, including vaults, foundation walls, and concrete pads, all of which can damage excavation equipment and slow the pace of your work if uncovered by accident.

3D Depth Slices

For complex sites, the LMX200™ can create 3D depth slice images that reveal the orientation of pipes and cables at various depths. These depth slices will also outline the extent of vaults, foundations, and buried tanks.

On-Site and Remote Reporting

The LMX200™ uses an internal GPS system compatible with internal GPS reports and Google Earth™. We can produce on-site reports that include screen captures, lines, grids, and map view information. Fast reporting means your team can quickly assess your worksite’s needs and make a fast, yet confident decision. Data and reports can even be transmitted remotely to your off-site location.
