Boiler / Super-heater inspection by drone
Power plants can reduce the inspection time for boilers by four days to one day when using drones and can also avoid scaffolding.
In order to properly document the inspection, it is important that a technician familiar with the boiler is on site during the inspection. The pilot-in-command should take pictures in a planned and structured manner so that engineers can match the pictures with the correct parts. You have to admit that the captured images are mysteriously very beautiful. When it comes to boiler inspections, the use of the drone is superior to classic inspection methods that require a scaffold. A boiler inspection with drones shortens inspection time by 75% and completely reduces downtime, costs and dangerous working hours associated with scaffolding. Looking at the figures, boiler inspection by drone is child’s play.
