Mapping of Underground Utilities
As built maps of utilities are made in reference to specific points, which become null and void as the civic layout changes. Most times, such maps do not even exist.
The utilities are often confronted with the task of ensuring expansion of buried services, without knowing the locations or routes of their utility assets. The contractor is bestowed the responsibility to execute the work of new installation of cables or pipes or even over ground structures such as fly over’s, freeways or buildings without damaging existing buried cable and pipe utility services.
The task faced by the contractor (or the user i.e the utility itself) is applicable to all types of utilities and especially buried utilities such as water pipes, sewer pipes, power cables etc. The onus of avoidance of buried utilities is of the contractor.
Many a contractor recognize that they are faced with the task of mapping
When is a ground penetrating radar beneficial in locating of underground pipes & cable utilities ?
The task of Locating underground utilities can be bifurcated into two deliverable:
1.Detection of underground utilities
2.Mapping of underground utilities
If we take“a”this can be further subdivided into:
1. Detection of metallic cables & pipes, whether energized current carrying utilities or non energized utilities such as signaling cables, metallic pipes etc.
2. Detection of DI pipes, metallic manholes etc.
3. Non metallic HDPE telecom pipes, fiberglass manholes, etc.
Underground cable & pipe utility locating requires the use a combination of various equipment’s and techniques which need to be chosen based on desired deliverables and then correctly employed to obtain the desired results.
If the answer is “i”, an operator with basic training on usage of the ever dependable CSCOPE DXL2 Cable avoidance tool or CAT33XD Cable avoidance tool, can do the job blindfolded.
If the answer is “ii”, an additional metal detector &/or magnetic locator is required.
If the answer is “iii”. The use of a
How To Choose A Material Thickness Gauge - Part I
Thickness gauges are utilized where a micrometer or vernier caliper cannot be utilized – for measuring thickness of large sheets of metal or other substrates which can otherwise not be measured using the above devices.
[caption id="attachment_54" align="alignleft" width="150"] Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge[/caption]
A thickness gauge works on the principle of ultrasonics, i.e a signal is sent into the substrate through the transmitter of an ultrasonic transducer which when received allows the thickness of the substrate to be measured.
While all this sounds so simple, should all ultrasonic thickness gauges not be the same?
Which leads to the questions –
1. what is the type of substrate under test ? egg, steel, aluminum, iron, titanium, glass etc.
2. What are the conditions in which the thickness gauge will be used, will there be dust, oil, water ?
3. Is it a simple sheet of material or a final product ?
4. How thin or
