Ground Penetrating Radar to Evaluate Rail Ballast, Sub-ballast and Sub-grade. Railroad maintenance and service providers have traditionally relied on visual inspection and excavation to assess ballast condition and measure sub-ballast and sub-grade. Ground penetrating radar is used to indicate ballast fouling and accurately measure the structural layers to a higher precision and in far less time than with traditional methods.
Geophysical professionals require a reliable and accurate means to examine soil conditions and the natural structures found beneath the surface of the earth. Ground penetrating radar has long been the choice for geophysical investigations with a wide range of high precision, field-proven tools. Geophysical tools can be used to calculate ground conductivity, tree and roots assessment, for golf courses, for drainage tiles.
Dissolved Species Analysis
Dissolved species analysis employing Hiden's high sensitivity membrane sampling technology for analysis of respiratory gases, hydrocarbons and sulphides is applied to a wide range of application areas including:
Ecolological studies in sea water
Bio fuel production from algae
Pollution monitoring in river, estuary and reservoir waters
Soil core analyses
Our GPR products aid in determining mining safety, establishing bedrock depth, mapping sand and gravel deposits, ascertain rock quality, in addition to mineral exploration. Mining professionals use ground penetrating radar to accurately locate underground structures before drilling, blasting or carrying face operations. Ground penetrating radar is instrumental in helping to identify overhead separations in order to prevent ceiling collapses. In deep mine applications, ground penetrating radar is invaluable for...
