The drone is deployed whilst the boiler is cooling down, without the need for scaffolding. This provides inspection data five days earlier, on average, allowing more time for maintenance planning and remedial works.
The drone creates an accurate 3D map of the environment, enabling scaffolding to be erected at a precise location to fix any issues. HD live streaming of crisp 4k images and videos facilitates collaborative decision-making with maintenance managers.
3-D mapping creates an accurate data set to conduct additional reviews and root cause analysis after the outage is complete, to minimize the risk of future damage or boiler failure.
The powerful cloud-based reporting tool provides post-survey analysis and data integration. CFB Boiler experts perform our drone boiler inspections; they analyse results and suggest reliable remedial solutions to increase CFB Boiler reliability.
