Using Drones For Inspections
Visual inspections are necessary across almost all industries, from industrial HVAC equipment to the tops of cell phone towers. Having an experienced, qualified inspector with an eye for detail and the knowledge to spot potential problems is essential to keeping everything in proper working order. It also helps to prevent accidents and disasters resulting from damaged or aging equipment.
Inspections are often needed for dangerous or difficult to reach places, such as inside boilers or underneath and at the tops of bridges, requiring special safety equipment and a team on hand in the event of an accident. Instead of dealing with the challenges of a manned inspection, we can send a drone to get clear 360-degree assessments remotely, then zero-in for granular inspections where indicated (for example, around the outside of a support beam or cement pour to check for movement, cracks, or other problems). An inspector can then review the collected data in comprehensive detail.
