G.P.R. emits electromagnetic pulse through concrete. This pulse energy travels until it hits an object within the concrete. As the GPR receiver is rolled over an object some energy is reflected off the object and is returned to an antenna receiver. The data collector presents this info as a hyperbola for analyst to interpret.
Vortex employs trained analysts that use state-of-the-art GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar in Omaha) equipment to locate embedded construction material (rebar, conduits, cables) and other subsurface materials in concrete in real time. GPR concrete scanning is typically a complementary service to concrete coring and cutting. Concrete scanning is an integral part for damage prevention and lower job-site cost. Scan before you cut or core.
We can "SEE" what is in the concrete and use this information to take out the guess work. We are safety minded and quality driven everytime.
