How to Use Underground Metal Detectors to Detect Scrap Metal

Release time:


Underground metal detectors can be used to detect waste metal buried in the ground. The following are the general steps for detection using an underground metal detector:

  1. Understand underground metal detectors: Be familiar with the underground metal detectors used and their functions and methods of operation. Different detectors may have different settings and functions, so it is important to read the manual or receive relevant training.

  2. Select the right detection area: Select the location where you think scrap metal may be present. This can be an abandoned building, an old construction site, an abandoned metal dump, etc. Make sure you have access to the area and communicate with the relevant authorities or owners before conducting a probe.

  3. Prepare the detector: According to the requirements of the detector, ensure that its battery is sufficient and make necessary settings. Some detectors may need to be calibrated to suit the current soil conditions.

  4. Detect: Start detecting in the selected area according to the operation instructions of the detector. Usually, you need to suspend the detector's detection disk or detection coil on the ground and move it slowly so that the detector can scan for metal objects underground.

  5. Pay attention to signals and indications: When the detector detects metal, it will make a sound or display an indication. This may be a high brightness digital display, sound frequency changes or vibration, etc. According to the detector's instructions, you can draw the existence and approximate location of metal objects.

  6. Further investigation: When you detect potential waste metal, you can use other functions of the detector (such as depth indicator or underground imaging) to learn more about metal objects. These features can help you determine the depth and shape of the metal.

Please note that the use of underground metal detectors may be restricted by law and local regulations. Be sure to understand and comply with local laws and regulations, especially regarding land use and waste disposal, before conducting a probe. In addition, respect private property and public places, and obtain appropriate permits and authorizations when necessary.
