LMX® Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Systems

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a powerful technology that uses radio waves to create an accurate picture of what lies beneath the surface. By sending out a pulse of radio energy, GPR can detect and locate buried objects in real time. This information can be conveniently displayed in the field or integrated into maps and other deliverables.

If you’re looking to map the precise location and depth of a wide range of utilities, LMX is the industry’s most reliable brand of GPR. The LMX GPR systems are capable of detecting and characterizing buried utilities, including metallic, non-metallic, plastic, concrete, and even asbestos-concrete. By systematically scanning an area, LMX can effortlessly reveal the distribution and characteristics of multiple buried utilities for:

  • Utility locating
  • Engineering
  • Construction
  • Road and building maintenance
  • Law enforcement, mining, archaeology
  • UXO detection
  • Geophysics and environmental assessment projects

Choose the LMX GPR system that best suits your utility locating needs.

Schonstedt Magnetic Locators 

Magnetic locators are capable of detecting underground objects that contain ferrous metals by utilizing the natural magnetic field of the earth. Rather than emitting a signal, these locators measure the distortion in the magnetic field surrounding a buried metal target.

With over 70 years of excellence to its name, Schonstedt® is a renowned global leader in the design and manufacture of magnetic locators. Its innovative HeliFlux dual-sensor technology detects the magnetic fields emitted by any buried iron object up to 20 feet beneath the surface of the ground with great precision.

The Schonstedt Magnetic Locator will revolutionize how surveyors, excavators, and construction workers pinpoint static objects at different depths. From small corner pins to massive tanks, drums, and septic tanks, our experts will guide you towards the ultimate solution for:

  • Surveying & Mapping
  • Water & Sewer
  • Construction & Excavation
  • Power & Electric
  • Telecom & Cable
  • Gas & Oil Pipelines
  • Roads & Transportation
  • And more!
