Locating utilities with state-of-the-art technology
Underground utility locatorservices are essential for both large and small civil works, construction andmining companies from Christchurch to Auckland and New Zealand wide. Theseservices use high-tech equipment like ground penetrating radar andelectromagnetic induction to help companies find buried or hidden utility linesand pipes.
Although there are several pieces of equipment that you can use to accomplish this mapping process, ground penetrating radar and electromagnetic induction are the two most popular and fastest methods available.
Once they have a picture of the utilities,the underground utility locators can form an accurate map. This map willoutline where the buried cables, pipes or utility lines run. They can then markon the ground where they are, and the company can use hydro excavationequipment to safely and precisely dig up the utility lines.
Hydro excavation or vacuum excavation isthe preferred digging method because it uses pressurised water to break throughthe soil and a sucker truck to draw the broken up soil away from the worksite.There's no digging with heavy equipment that can accidentally damage the lines,and hydro excavation allows you to dig through even frozen ground without aproblem.
