Short Course on Options – What You Should Know

Benefits Of Hiring a GPR Or A Concrete X-ray For Your Project

When you realize that your concrete has a problem which you are not aware of and you want to know, some people think that demolishing it is the only thing that can be done. The reason is that there are other ways you can identify the problem without interfering with it. The most common ones are the concrete scanning X rays and the ground penetrating radar (GPR).

In both cases you will realize that depending on the needs you have, each has its own advantages. You can decide for example to use the X-ray scanner to map the post tension cables or rebar on the ground. According to the WHO, the rays from the scanner are hazardous, and it is important to remove all the surrounding. The people doing the job should also wear protective gears.

The other more efficient process which is quicker and safer to use in the ground penetrating radar. The GPR will help you detect tension cables and other things in the concrete such as the pipeline. Structures like the towers and bridges can employ this process of using the radar only if the concrete is not exceeding 18 inches in thickness. Any anomaly that is identified in the concrete or the surface will be easily mapped by the GPR image.
The 10 Best Resources For Options

On the advantages, you will find that despite the health threats it poses, the X-ray is better than the GPR. Then X-ray enables everything to be visible in the image created. This is because with an X-ray you can use the computer in fluoroscopy, radiotherapy and tomography. It is for this reason that people prefer the scanner than the GPR.
Getting Down To Basics with Maps

The two technologies also can be compared by looking at the amount of money incurred when you hire either of them. The use of the concrete radar will require less amount of money than when you use the scanner.

The latest technology allows easy processing and manipulation of images in the radar system. Combining with that it is cheaper than the scanner, many people are going to the radar system. It is convenient in many areas except those that are wet because they are less effective.

When you have a job that requires some bit of cutting or drilling or even coring, using an X-ray scanner will be beneficial over using the GPR. The reason is that the scanner will provide a clear image for the whole project. You will see your project in all the angles if some bit of utility location and leak detection are incorporated. The best firm to hire these services from is the one which has equipment of the latest technology. Experts should be the one that handles your projects.
