Blog 1Infrastruct AMS Limited is delighted to announce our purchase of the Hilti PS-1000 Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system for structural investigations.

The PS-1000 uses short pulse electromagnetic waves to determine multiple layers of reinforcing bars, prestressing strands, post-tensioned tendons, voids, metal pipes, plastic pipes, timber and electric cables to a depth of 300mm in concrete structures.

The system enables an efficient and cost-effective structural survey of concrete structures providing high resolution scans of the structure in 2D or 3D in real-time.

The PS-1000 is a powerful addition to our extensive range of structural testing and investigation services.

For more information on GPR surveys of concrete structures using the PS-1000, please contact Dr Thomas Callanan in Infrastruct Asset Management Services Limited.
