• How it Works:

    Cement scanning is a procedure used to detect utilities under a cemented surface. Before you start cutting into a cement surface you need to make sure that you don’t accidentally harm an electrical circuit or any other essentials that might be embedded under the cemented surface. Usually, cement walls and floors contain electrical cables, rebar, fiber optics, mesh, voids, conduit, and tension cables. In order to avoid the destruction of these utilities, we use a non-destructive GPR system to scan the area that is under operation.

    WHY USE CEMENT SCANNING:

    Before you start coring and cutting into cement surfaces, you need to make sure that you have a clear surface. Cement floors and walls usually contain plumbing, fiber optics, and tension cables. Our cement scanning procedure not only protects the concealed utilities it also ensures your safety. Cement scanning allows you to see real-time images so that you can accurately diagnose the underlying problems and easily cut through cement without any risk or added costs. The technology used is safer than the X-ray mechanism and it does not require area evacuation of inhabitants. It also ensures a safe procedure without risking the safety of workers and without any added costs due to damage. Cement scanning is not only a profit-friendly system it also ensures that you get the job done on time.

    WHY CEMENT SCANNING IS AN EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE:

    If you accidentally cut into cement concealed elements such as rebar, tension cables or conduit it can cause hazardous outcomes. You will not only be putting yourself into danger you will also be risking the entire project and its profit. These circumstances will delay the execution of the project and eventually increase the overall expenses as well. However, by taking proper precautions you can reduce the chance of potential risks, get the job done effectively, save money and your valuable time.

    GPR Limitations:

    Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a non-destructive testing method used to locate materials such as concrete, plastic, metal, steel, rock, soil, ice, and pavement. At Bullseye Utility Locating LLC, we use the latest GPR technology to provide critical information on utilities, structural elements and other potential obstructions within existing concrete structures or underground. Because depth of exploration is dependent upon the electrical properties of material(s) inspected and interpretations are opinions based on judgments made from those acquired radar signals and/or other data, Bullseye Utility Locating LLC does not guarantee the accuracy or correctness of interpretations and Bullseye Utility Locating LLC will not accept liability or responsibility for any loss, damage, or expense that may be incurred or sustained by any services or interpretations performed by Bullseye Utility Locating LLC. Even though, Bullseye Utility Locating LLC uses the best technology available in the market for Utility Location we cannot detect every buried utility. A buried line or pipe must conduct an electronic signal, transmitted by our equipment, to be accurately detected. At job sites, there will more than likely be subsurface utilities that cannot be detected, and many times utilities pass through a site without an above ground access point, or giving any other indication that they are there. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always available to explain any limitations as they pertain to your site. For these reasons, Bullseye Utility Locating LLC is not responsible for any nonconductive lines (Non-Metallic, PVC, Water Line, Etc.) and for any conductive lines with no accessible connection point or those that do not appear on blueprints, maps, or as-builts provided by customer prior to locating. Bullseye Utility Locating LLC is not responsible for any loss or damage arising out of the use of, or reliance on the data collected or the report presented.
