Key Benefits of Utility Mapping:
Lowflo supplies several different types of underground pipe locating equipment designed to equip you with the latest technology to ensure the most accurate results.
Lowflo supplies the hugely popular Cable Avoidance Tool (C.A.T.) from C. Scope, CAT 3 and CAT4. The C.A.T. is the most popular locator used in Ireland today and has proven itself to be invaluable tool in leak detection. For situations that require specific identification of particular pipes and noteworthy points Lowflo supplies a unit that identifies Electronic Markers placed in the ground to identify specific points. This is cutting edge technology and allows for advanced locating and mapping interfaces with GIS.
Lowflo uses a Pulse Wave Generator, manufactured by F.A.S.T and RD1000 by Radio Detection. Utilising acoustic technology, the pipes can be located with the help of a ground microphone system. Lowflo use GPR surveying (Ground Penetrating Radar), which can be very effective in locating non-metallic utilities.
