Possibly the biggest fact about our concrete x-ray service is that it is not x-ray at all. We utilize special Ground Penetrating Radar equipment for our concrete imaging. Use of GPR is more effective and safer than X-Ray.
Most people consider our inside GPR to be a floor X-Ray because the images produced by the equipment resemble an X-Ray image. We will perform a grid scan over the area to be cut, cored, or drilled. Once our grid scan is completed, we can identify objects in the concrete.
Concrete floor x-ray is a much more involved process that requires the use of radioactive waves to penetrate the floor, wall, or concrete slab. Our GPR units provide a much safer alternative and produce similar results. X-Ray requires entire sections of floors and surrounding areas to be segregated, which can take hours just to set up. Using GPR, we can typically scan and mark out all known commodities in a 2′ by 2′ area in less than 15 minutes.
