Ferroscanning utilises ground penetrating radar to carry out cost effective and non destructive inspections of concrete, highlighting pipework, cracks and voids, reporting in real time as 2D or 3D graphical information.
An essential process for specifiers responsible for structural work, such as engineers and architects, scanners are critical but expensive tools within the process. Our range of ferroscanning services provide a cost effective, reactive, professional, as-you-need it solution, delivered comprehensively with expert operators who can interpret the smallest details in the scan reports.
We utilise the Hilti PS1000 X-Scan for all our ferro scanning work, using radar pulses it works in a similar fashion to ultrasound scans in medicine, it can provide instant diagnostic results producing reports that can be quickly analysed by an experienced operator to highlight all kinds of reinforcements, implants and cracks in any given piece of cured concrete.
Call us today on 01474 822785 to get in contact with our expert ferro scanners who will guide you through the process of receiving your own ferroscans. We will ensure that you receive all of the information you need and provide the pipework detections services you require. Equipped with the highest quality Hilti ferro scan equipment, we ensure that you get the best and clear readings about your surroundings so that you’re able to continue with your structural work.
A few of the features of the Hilti ferro-scan equipment, available with a professional and qualified technician to specifiers nationwide throughout the UK, include;
- Scans to a depth of 300-350mm
- Identifies metallic and non-metallic objects
- Detects cracks and voids
- Locate through multiple layers of cured concrete
- Presents reports in 2D or 3D
- Scan large or small areas
The unit is cost effective, non-intrusive, compact and hand held, offering a huge range of applications; it can fit into very tight spaces, scan walls or floors, even curved surfaces like columns and a range of pre-cast concrete units. Each individual scan covers a relatively small area, however we can easily connect batches of data together so that numerous individual scans can provide fully realised 3D imaging of very large areas.
