GPR, Utility Locate, EMI, Magnetometer
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local Energy Company requesting GPR, Utility Locating and EMI/Magnetometer to locate all abandoned piping, utilities and other anomalies (unknown targets).
How We Responded
Encompass Inspections Houston office arrived on the jobsite in Houston, Texas within 24 hours to perform the client requested services.
Results We Delivered
Once a jobsite walk was completed with the foreman of the Energy Company, Encompass Inspections set out to identify and mark out all known and unknown targets using Ground Penetrating Radar, Radio Detection and EMI/Magnetometer. GPR was used in a 5-10 foot diagonal grid pattern and pink paint was used to mark out all targets. Radio detection was further used to connect to visible utilities and trace them out, and EMI was used for scanning several acres of open field.
Upon completing the utility locate, the results were marked directly onto the surface allowing the foreman and his crew to perform pot holing, excavation, and utility removal safely and without any injury to job site personnel. GPR, Radio Detection and EMI reduced the locating costs and created a safer environment, allowing the project to be marked out quickly and accurately compared to traditional grid trenching and blind Excavating.
