  5. Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines

    Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines
    Sometimes, in the construction and use of pipelines, or during the construction/tear-down of buildings, you may need to detect and remove some unknown ferrous object from inside pipes, behind walls, and under flooring. To safely detect the position of an object, you can use a Mobile Hall Sensor Array.  The main benefit of this method is that it’s considered a non-destructive evaluation (NDE), which is exactly what it sounds like… non-destructive. You can determine your next move before making any costly demolition choices that could cause damage to your product or equipment, or even cause serious injury to employees. Continue reading →
  6. Magnets Used in Law Enforcement to Secure Underwater Evidence

    Magnets Used in Law Enforcement to Secure Underwater Evidence
    If you work in law enforcement, then you are probably well-aware that one of the most common illegal dumping grounds for guns is… underwater. Whether these guns are actual murder weapons, linked to a crime, or just purchased illegally, guns are often disposed of in lakes, rivers, streams, swamps, sewers, and wells. Using the power of magnets, law enforcement teams can bring important evidence –– the weapon in question –– to the surface, and in some cases, use it to identify a suspect and close a case.
