Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

This process is generically known as condition monitoring. When used correctly, it can result in huge cost savings compared to traditional maintenance methods.

Traditional maintenance methods are preventive – Components are replaced according to a fixed schedule whether worn or not. Traditional maintenance methods are also reactive, repairing components only after they have broken down.

Neither of these methods is ideal, although both are very common throughout the heavy industry sector, and both tend to incur much higher costs than methods that use vibration analysis.
