Ground Penetrating Radar
Ground Penetrating Radar is the safest non-destructive way to survey an area before construction modifications begin. GPR eliminates the guesswork and determines if an area can be safely modified. This helps avoid costly mistakes, minimizes downtime, and costs for damaged equipment, and prevents accidents.
Diamond’s GPR Systems Can:
Scan walls, floors, and soil in many different conditions.
Successfully locate and accurately plot buried utilities including water lines, electrical lines, post-tension cables, gas lines, in-floor tubing, and voids in the concrete or soil.
Find anomalies in or around buildings.
Be deployed quickly and effectively in the most confined areas.
Be used in almost any setting due to the low impact of the scan signal which is 1% of a cell phone’s output.
MSU Stadium Case Study
GPR was used to identify utilities at Michigan State University's stadium ahead of a repair project. Over 7,000 linear feet were scanned within 5 days.
Envirologic Technologies Case Study
An entity wanted to purchase land where a gas station had previously been in operation. Diamond’s GPR was used to find if fuel tanks were still underground.
Pfizer Case Study
In preparation for mechanical changes, GPR was used to locate the reinforcing steel inside the walls of Pfizer’s Kalamazoo, MI manufacturing facility in order to preserve structural integrity and prevent damage to the site.
American Electric Power Case Study
All reinforcement and conduits had to be located and mapped to drawings within AEP’s Cook Nuclear power plant in Bridgman, MI before work to repair groundwater leaks could begin.
Can Robots break overhead concrete?Yes, they can break overhead concrete with demolition arms that reach 15’ high. They can reach even higher, using Hi-LOs and other supporting equipment as a base.
How long does a robot take to demolish concrete or other structures?Approximately 30,000 lbs of concrete can be demolished in an 8-10 hour shift.
