K-S 700 Ground Penetrating Radar

We trade K-S 700 Ground Penetrating Radar from K.S. Analysis, Germany. Ground Penetrating Radar, also known as GPR, Geo-radar, Subsurface Interface Radar, Geo-probing Radar, is a totally non-destructive technique to produce a cross section profile of subsurface without any drilling, trenching or ground disturbances. K-S 700 GPR has 2 antennae (transmitting and receiving antennae) which are firmly connected with it and aligned to the electronics. The antennae adjustment for variation in depth either low or high is done through built-in software. The software of the device is optimized for different tasks. The antennae are also shielded to all directions and therefore only permeate to the ground. K-S 700 GPR can be operated single-handed.

GPR waves can reach higher depths in low conductivity materials. Antennae with low frequency obtain reflections from deeper depths but have low resolution. These low frequency antennae are used for investigating the geology of a site, such as for locating sinkholes or fractures, and to locate large, deep buried objects. Antennae with higher frequencies obtain reflections from shallow depths (0 to 8 meters) and have a high resolution. These high frequency antennae are used to investigate surface soils and to locate small or large shallow buried objects, pipes, cables and rebar in concrete. GPR can detect objects of any material, metallic or non-metallic.

Advantages:

  • Rapid ground coverage- Antenna towed either by hand or from a vehicle.
  • High-resolution coverage of the survey area, detecting even small objects.
  • On-site interpretation possible due to instant graphic display.

Application Area:

  • Geological and hydro-geological investigations including mapping of bedrock topography, water levels, solution features, glacial structures, soils and aggregates.
  • Engineering investigations to evaluate dams, sea walls, tunnels, pavements, roadbeds, railway embankments, piles, bridge decks, river scour, buildings and monuments.
  • Location and evaluation of buried structures including utilities, foundations, reinforcing bars, cavities, tombs, archaeological artifacts, cemeteries and animal burrows.
  • Site investigations: location of buried engineering structures and underground storage tanks.
  • Subsurface mapping for cables, pipes and other buried structures prior to trench-less operations.
  • In law enforcement for locating clandestine graves and buried evidence.
  • Military uses as detection of mines, unexploded ordnance, and tunnels etc.
