-- Many oil tank companies offer oiltank sweep services using a "wand" metal magnetometer. This instrument is not very sensitive and can only see large metal onjects at about three feet below. This technolgy can not see below concrete with metal rebar and small objects such as pipes can interfere with scan. Environmental Systems utililizes Ground Penetrating Radar to identify buried objects like sand filled oil tanks and abaandoned tanks. Ground Penetetrating Radar can be used to find old septic tank systems, buried construction debris, PVC piping, and utilities. A screen identifies the dimensions of the buried structures. All oil tank sweeps should be followed up with extra cost soil borings that incluse laboratory analysis of soil and ground water samples. Environmental systems have identified oil and gas tanks 12 inches below concrete that were buried 5 feet below the surface. Environmental Systems is a ful service environmental company specializing in oil gas tank remediation and provides statewide service in New Jersey.
