Working with 3M©, Safe Locate Solutions is able to provide comprehensive underground asset management solutions. We deliver customer value by helping to improve asset utilisation, safety and security.
3M™ Full Range Marker.
The full-range marker is suited for deep applications up to 8′. Its 15″-diameter makes it ideal for use as a digging shield over sensitive underground facilities.
3M™ Mini Marker.
Designed for marking applications at depths up to 6′, marker spokes in the 8.25″ diameter mini-marker help stabilize it in the correct position after placement.
3M™ Near -Surface Marker.
The near-surface marker is ideal for marking underground and street-access facilities up to 2′ in depth. Its 3.5″ long cylindrical size and shape allows for easy installation in asphalt, concrete or rock without extensive digging or drilling.
As communities grow, so do their underground assets. It becomes increasingly important to quickly and accurately identify exactly what is buried underground and where. The 3M Electronic Marker System (EMS) delivers more information to accelerate identification and help avoid costly mistakes.
3M™ Ball Marker.
Engineered for narrow trench applications up to 5′ in depth, the 4″-diameter ball marker has a unique, patented self-leveling feature that ensures an accurate, horizontal position regardless of how it is placed in the ground.(Contains a mixture of propylene glycol and water which is approved for use in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and as a food additive. The mixture is readily biodegradable and will not harm humans, wildlife or the environment.)
3M™ EMS Caution Tape 7600 Series uses a new EMS marker technology embedded into a caution tape for installation near or above the buried facility. The markers require no batteries and there is no need to hook up an external transmitter or search for access points. The markers work independently, so even if a section of Caution Tape is cut or removed, the other markers on the tape continue to provide accurate location information. Easily identifiable by color, each version of 3M EMS Caution tape is tuned to a frequency specific to that utility (gas, telco, water or wastewater). It can be buried down to 2 ft (0.61 m), and is ideal for early detection/warning due to this low depth.
3M™ EMS Rope 7700 Series incorporates an EMS marker installed into a polyester rope every eight feet and can be quickly installed above the pipe/cable or within conduit. 3M EMS Rope is tough enough to be installed down to 4 ft. (1.2 m) through rugged terrain. The EMS Rope is tuned to a frequency specific to gas, power, telco or water, and provides durability for plowing or Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) applications, since the system continues to function even if it is fully cut during the installation process.
Based on existing Dynatel technology platform, the new 7000 series locators will allow the user to locate existing EMS markers as well as read/write to iD markers. It is as easy as selecting “path” marker locating for EMS Caution Tape or “iD/EMS” for point marker locating. The push of one button will provide the depth to any of the underground markers. 3M™ Dynatel™ Marker/Tape Locators 7420 are high performance locators that quickly and efficiently locate 3M EMS Caution Tape along with Electronic Markers. The 7420 can be used to locate all frequencies of 3M EMS Caution tape. It can also locate 3M Electronic Markers and have the capability to read/write to 3M™ Dynatel™ iD Enabled Markers. It can also locate most other conventional electronic markers. Designed to be accurate, fast and integrated, the 7420 EMS Marker/Tape Locator with iDRead/Write allow you to accurately and easily:
