GSSI Announces Innovative Handheld Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for Concrete Inspection Industry

Sept. 21, 2014

GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces its StructureScan Mini series, ideal for the concrete inspection industry. The StructureScanÔ 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 50 cm (20 inches); the StructureScan Mini HR offers a 2600 MHz antenna for high-resolution data and can reach depths of up to 40cm (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 makes concrete inspection easy 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 job sites. 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 a great value and are backed by a two-year warranty. They are ideal for concrete inspection, structural inspection, condition assessment, slab thickness measurement, and void location.
