Unlike other ferrous metal detectors, it is effective at finding reinforcement in concrete, underground storage tanks, valves, valve box lids, hydrant lids and steel pipes.
The Metrotech 880B Ferrous Metal Detector is actually locating the change in magnetic field so the signal is strongest around the edges. This means that the metrotech 880b ferrous metal detector can be used to mark out the shape of the object found before excavation to confirm the user has found what they are looking for.
As the metrotech 880b ferrous metal detector is locating the change in magnetic fields it is effective to depths of 2m or more, outperforming most other metal detectors.
Operating at this depth it can also be used to locate cast iron, steel or ductile iron pipes. This high performance ferrous metal detector has been the best product chosen by many utilities and for specific projects including a Mount Everest salvage mission.
