New GSSI Handheld GPR For Concrete Inspection
GSSI has unveiled the new StructureScan Mini series, ideal for concrete inspection. The StructureScan Mini is a handheld, all-in-one GPR system for locating rebar, conduits, post-tension cables and voids, and can be used to determine concrete slab thickness in real-time. The StructureScan Mini is available in two models: the standard StructureScan Mini, and the StructureScan Mini HR, a high-resolution system.
The StructureScan Mini is 1600 MHz and can reach depths of up to 20 inches; the StructureScan Mini HR offers a 2600 MHz antenna for high-resolution data and can reach depths of up to 16 inches.Both systems safely locate metallic and non-metallic targets, with an auto target feature that marks the detection of features of interest. Both the standard and HR systems are available with either standard 2D capabilities, or 3D for an x-ray-like image. The lasers on the side of the unit indicate the exact location of the center of target for accurate marking of targets embedded in the concrete.
The StructureScan Mini series’ compact design eases concrete inspection in tight spaces or above the head survey locations, and its ruggedized plastic casing and wheels ensure long-lasting performance. The series features an all-in-one concrete inspection tool, with the antenna, positioning system and control unit combined into one easy-to-maneuver package. The entire series is lightweight and user-friendly: the StructureScan Mini Series has no cables, no boxes and no heavy equipment, allowing users to move seamlessly between jobsites. The tool aids in target detection with advanced software solutions, which visualize targets as a small dot when characteristics of rebar or conduit are identified.
The systems in the StructureScan Mini series are backed by a two-year warranty. They are ideal for concrete inspection, structural inspection, condition assessment, slab thickness measurement and void location.
Geophysical Survey Systems Inc. develops, manufactures and sells ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, primarily for the concrete inspection, utility mapping and locating, road and bridge deck evaluation, geophysics and archaeology markets. The equipment is used worldwide to explore the subsurface of the earth and to inspect infrastructure systems non-destructively.
