Using innovative HeliFlux sensor technology, Schonstedt locators can detect the magnetic fields that are present on any buried ferrous and steel objects or man-made magnets and markers.

What are ferrous metals? These are metals which contain iron. They may have small amounts of other metals or other elements added, to give the required properties. Alloys of iron and steel are the most common of all commercial metals. These include wrought
iron, cast iron, carbon steels, alloy steels and tool steels.
