What is Electromagnetic Locating?
Electromagnetic locating is a versatile method of locating underground utilities. It is used by OzDetect technicians everyday and is their essential locating tool. When there is a conductive or metallic utility onsite, we put a current into a service and trace the location, direction and depth of the service within a specified area. This is a cost-effective way to gain an accurate location of the services that may conflict with construction works within the area.
Importance of Locating
Any excavation, irrespective of size, has the potential to damage assets located around the work site, leading to service interruptions, delays to the project, costly repairs and in the worst case scenario, injury or death.
