10 Units Shipped to Uganda and the Central African Republic

Now in its 8th year, the Schonstedt Humanitarian Demining Initiative (SHDI) is still going strong! Schonstedt just shipped 6 demining locators to Uganda, bringing the worldwide total to 483. The United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) has assisted in getting the $1041 locators into the hands of UN-supported demining teams in 29 countries, among them Laos, Somalia, Kenya, Tajikistan, Vietnam, Nepal, Egypt, Mauritania, Ethiopia, Croatia, Chad, Azerbaijan, Gaza, Cambodia, Algeria, Lebanon, Libya, Uganda, the Darfur region of Sudan, and the Central African Republic.   This video tells the story of an innovative humanitarian demining partnership involving the United Nations Mine…

Schonstedt Plays a Key Role in Underground Asset Management

As more emphasis is placed on locating, documenting and managing underground utility assets, a combination of survey magnets and Schonstedt magnetic locators are playing an important role in the identification and marking out of the utility infrastructure. Along with As-Builts, GPS and other data, information is integrated using sophisticated software designed to map and display underground utilities and site assets.

Schonstedt Locators in Afghanistan

Front page article in The Washington Post By Kevin Sieff KABUL — As the U.S. military withdraws from Afghanistan, it is leaving behind a deadly legacy: about 800 square miles of land littered with undetonated grenades, rockets and mortar shells. The military has vacated scores of firing ranges pocked with the explosives. Dozens of children have been killed or wounded as they have stumbled upon the ordnance at the sites, which are often poorly marked. Casualties are likely to increase sharply; the U.S. military has removed the munitions from only 3 percent of the territory covered by its sprawling ranges,…

Cambridge, Ontario: Leaky pipes, rate relief, and the GA-92XT

ByJeff Hicks, TheRecord.com CAMBRIDGE — You need a safe cracker’s ear to find and fix Cambridge’s $90-million in potentially leaky pipes. You need a stethoscope, too. Place the listening bell on a suspect valve or water hydrant. Then, like an old-west bandit trying to discern a coming gold train with an ear to the rail, listen hard for the sickening sound of millions in liquid cash trickling out of ratepayers pockets and into the ground. “You can actually listen over a pipe on the ground,” public works commissioner George Elliott said. “If you have to you can drill a port…

The GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator for Steel Pipe Join Detection

Quickly Finds: pipe end sections joints or couplings fittings or valves Minimizes: “pot-holing” pavement stripping time in finding leaks GA-72Cd features audio & two levels of precision measurement quick & easy to use helps identify type or size of target For use on gas and water mains & distribution services How it works: The GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator quickly defines where pipe joints occur and where a metallic transitional change occurs, as iron mass increases and decreases along the pipe path. It offers three levels of precise measurement — audio, polarity bar graph and a displayed value of magnetic strength intensity…
