Earth Radar are innovating the utility locator industry
Underground utility assets like water, sewage, gas, and communication lines either degrade over time or undertake damage due to environmental stresses, where they need to be assessed and, if needed, repaired immediately.
A key challenge with maintaining utilities is to actually accurately locate the utilities, followed by then actually exposing and getting access to the utility, where the utility line will typically be buried under dirt, cement or asphalt and require non-destructive excavation.
In light of this, modern innovations like radar location services and non-destructive digging have enabled companies like us to efficiently locate utilities and safely expose them.
Underground utilities are pipes and cabling that is buried underground and responsible for the transit of public utilities like water, sewage, gas, and electricity. They are almost everywhere, under your backyard, under footpaths, roadways, parks, and even the floors of lakes, rivers and oceans.
Utility locating is a critical practice in underground asset maintenance that involves the use of modern radar technology to scan underground and identify the specific location of utility lines. This enables excavators a visual map or where to specifically dig, helping to mitigate time lost on inaccurate digs and, most significantly, avoid a line strike.
Non-destructive digging refers to a suite of modern excavation practices that utilise either pressurised air or water to excavate around utilities, opposed to using traditional methods that involve an excavation machine and manual shovel excavation. Traditional excavation practices they don’t offer the same level of safety, precision or clean utility exposure that you get with non-destructive digging, hydro excavation, air excavation, and vacuum excavation.
