Thermal Drone Inspections and Drone Leak Detection

All of our drone pilots are trained in basic thermography. They are experts in the use of our thermal sensors onboard our drones. Our level three thermographer carries out an in-depth desktop study of the materials that need to be inspected in order to be able to calibrate our onboard settings to ensure the best possible results can be achieved. Our thermal sensors are routinely calibrated to ensure we deliver the most accurate data sets.

Our thermal sensors allow us to carry out precise radiometric imagery to identify heat loss areas and give heat change at the pixel level. Our software allows the data we capture to be analysed and interrogated in-depth, as well as allowing the change of colour pallets whilst viewing. Our thermography reports are delivered online through and detail all of the information you need to make informed decisions with.

By reviewing our high-resolution RGB imagery and video and comparing it against the thermal data at the pixel level, means we can often detect the ingress and egress points of water. If you need a thermal drone inspection or leak detection then get in touch with our team using the button below, chat button in the bottom right or by calling us directly

Drone Bridge Inspection

We use a variety of equipment to carry out bridge inspections. For close visual inspection of the elevations, we use our airborne drones with the capability of zooming in up to 200x whilst in flight, or we can take ultra-high-resolution images (up to 100mp) so that you can zoom in during the inspection report. We can record up to 5.2k video at very high frame rates, this allows you to pause anywhere in the video giving crisp, clear and sharp frames to identify defects at the pixel level.

For under bridge inspections we have three primary tools;

 

1. Our collision tolerant drone in a cage. This allows our Pilots to get up-close images of defects without worrying about steelwork or bumping into the structure - it's built to do just that.

 

2. Then we have our drone boat; our drone boat or 'The Gator Boat' as we like to call it, this small (2ftx1ft) boat sits on top of the water, is remote-controlled and can turn on the spot. This has a camera turret which is viewed by the Pilot and Engineer and can be moved 360 degrees and tilt up and down - great for long, low bridges and culverts

3. To inspect underwater structures we have a submersible drone or ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle). This can dive to depths of 100m and has an ultra-high-definition 4k camera and onboard lighting rig.

All of these data sources can be delivered to you on our simple-to-use drone inspection software which saves you hours in searching through data and writing reports - or we can provide a secure link to download the images and video for you to use in your existing systems.

Confined Space Drone Inspection

Our highly trained Drone Pilots are also confined space trained. Having this ticket allows them to safely assess the situation they are sending drones into. This also allows them to get into the very best position, safely, to fly the drone through the confined space.

Sending a drone into a confined space or culvert before a human is a no-brainer, especially if the reason is to carry out a routine inspection or an inspection prior to repair work happening. This is where our confined space drone service excels; this is what it was made to do! Our expert Drone Pilots will pick the right drone from our fleet specific to the task, our confined space drones are equipped with over 1500 lumens of ultra-bright LED flood lights, that light the dark up for our cameras to take high-resolution images and 4k video. To identify thermal anomalies, we use an onboard thermal imaging sensor, and if we're going into the unknown we can even use onboard LiDAR systems that help navigate through larger spaces like caverns and caves.

We use caged drones and crawlers to carry out small culvert inspections, these drones give us the ability to get into very small spaces. 

 

Sometimes you need to send a human to carry out the actual repair, but it is imperative by health and safety law that no one is put into a dangerous situation if there is a safer way to do it. Our confined space drone service offers you just that; a safer way. Get in touch with us a tell us a little bit more about your project..

Drone Pipeline Inspection

Traditional pipeline inspection methods may have been on foot, in a vehicle or in a helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft. All of these present their own problems - be it safety, cost, or efficiency. Team UAVs drone pipeline inspection and monitoring service eliminates all of those problems. We can cover lots of ground, quickly. Identifying defects, leaks, corrosion, environmental issues and theft from pipelines whilst carrying out our survey. Our service provides a complete map together with high-resolution images and video of your pipeline, and we can get into all the places traditional methods can't, often including underground and confined spaces using our specialist confined space drones. 

Water Pipelines

We work with water and utility service companies all over the UK to identify damage to pipelines in a preventative maintenance capacity. We use specialist equipment such as RGB, thermal, and multispectral sensors to identify underground leaks, damage to pipelines, corrosion, and missing furniture. We also carry out long topographical corridor surveys for new pipelines and provide progress imagery for project managers and key stakeholders so they always have knowledge of the bigger picture.

Oil & Gas Pipelines

Our teams can deploy around the world to monitor and inspect pipelines to identify corrosion before it leads to major environmental problems. When saltwater (produced water) pipelines leak, it kills vegetation and crops, and the clean up operation is often as difficult or more diffulct than that of oil, and costs can spiral into hundreds of thousands of pounds very quickly. Taking a proactive approach to maintenance can mitigate this risk significantly. Our specialist sensors and software can quickly detect leaks that would be extremely hard for the human eye to spot. We then update your asset map with potential problem areas and hand-off the data to to your operational teams so they can investigate further. With the ability to live stream our video asset inspections, or review the data later, your teams dont need to leave the office to carry out the analysis, with our reporting software, you can do it all remotely.

If you have pipelines in difficult or extreme environments that youre finding hard to inspect, or if you just want to try our drone inspection services, then get in touch with us and a member of our team can talk through your project...

Solar Panel PV Drone Inspection

Our Solar Panel PV Inspection service is designed to simplify your inspection process and aid your team in making data-informed decisions in order to improve efficiency. We start by carrying out a high-resolution RGB orthomosaic map of your site, at the same time we're also collecting thermal imagery. Once this is complete, we go around your site and capture all of the detailed images and videos that make up the majority of your report.

 

The report is easy to understand, with every asset and irregularity geo-referenced, given a severity, and colour graded on a digital map of your site.

We make a digital map of your site so that you can interact and look at your site’s condition. Your assets are easily identifiable and are colour coded and prioritised in line with the irregularities identified in the report. Data can be shared with project managers, investors and landowners and other key stakeholders to allow them to quickly and easily see the sites condition, and for maintenance teams to quickly and easily navigate their way to problem areas.

Our solar surveys are carried out to exact environmental conditions according to your specification and we are able to identify:

>Site access, security, fencing, signage, gates, parking and missing furniture

>Offline Inverters and Combiners

>Anomalous Strings

>Tracker Off Alignment

>Module Level Faults affecting the entire module’s performance

>Physical module damage (cracked/broken modules, thin-film delamination, soiling and surface coverage 

>Sub-module findings: diode faults, cell and multi-cell defects, faulty junction box.

>Suspected PID, shading issues from obstructions, adjacent rows or vegetation 

>Row and table damage

>Sub string in short circuit

>Heated junction box

>Single cell hotspot

Telecoms and Mast Drone Inspection

Our drone inspection service for telecom towers and other mast systems covers both rural and urban areas. We specialise in collecting data for asset inspections in extreme environments, our teams even relish the challenge.

 

Our drone teams are used to flying in difficult situations; in extreme environments, in all weather conditions, on mountains, in deserts, over people, at the top of buildings, and over water. This means we're able to get where others can't. When we're operating on behalf of asset managers and project managers, it is often the case that they have a detailed specification of what images are required and exactly what defects need to be identified. As well to us having an automated flight application for telecom mast inspections, our highly trained Drone Pilots are experts in manually flying and capturing data for inspections too. We can easily identify and provide reporting on: 

>Site access, security, fencing, signage, gates, parking and missing furniture

>Delamination

>Rust

>Corrosion

>Damage to mast and equipment

>Missing Furniture

>Vegetation Encroachment

>Damaged cables and fixtures and fittings

>Overheating parts using thermal imagery

>General overview images and videos
