Safety Advantages of Drones in Industrial Applications
Drones are growing in use every year, and their potential is expansive. From delivering mail to managing agriculture, drones have a variety of uses in a multitude of scenarios. One potential area is the industrial sector, especially in concentrated industrial zones which require high safety standards and meticulous record keeping of inspection details.
This is why we believe our drone services are the new, cutting edge safety standard when managing elaborate industrial projects. The type of advantages offered, along with the numerous safety hazards overcome with drone use means your workforce can accomplish more with less.
But what kind of advantages are offered, you ask? Primarily, because drones are capable of reaching multiple heights from various angles, they bring a whole new level of observation to the table. By removing the human element, risk of injury is significantly reduced, while the quality and capture of details is preserved.
For instance, assume your team must examine towers, tall buildings, or in-progress construction sites. Traditionally, ladders, snorkel lifts, or sky-jacks are required to view or inspect higher parts of the structure. With a drone, however, this is no longer necessary. A drone can reach tall heights, take HD quality photos and videos, and examine parts of a structure without human risk. They can also reach parts which would be considered too dangerous for a regular person, examining an area from all angles.
Consider too the need for inspection to things like power or electricity. Typically, when professionals need to examine things like power lines or wiring, power must temporarily be disabled. But, with a drone, there’s no need to turn off all power conduits. Additionally, risk of shock hazard is completely removed, as drone’s can examine potentially dangerous or exposed areas without risking human safety.
Drones in the industrial sector are also fantastic for record keeping. Usually, servicemen must personally examine all elements, damaged areas, zones for foundation, and more. This is a time consuming process and requires meticulous record keeping, which in some cases comes down to memory.
However, as mentioned before, a drone is capable of observing areas from a variety of heights, angles, and distances. This gives renewed perspective on potential projects, allowing management to approach inspection or repair in a whole new way.
With the ability for a drone to capture high quality video and imagery, management and work teams have immediate, detailed records for examining things like damage or areas for new construction. This precision data requires less time and less manpower, but yields larger results, ultimately streamlining the process for industrial upkeep.
With these attributes, a workforce greatly saves on time as well. Imagine how long it typically takes to inspect and record towers, buildings, power lines, or other structures. It likely requires proper devices, safety precautions, and skilled individuals. Then, the actual inspection can take days, sometimes the whole work week.
However, with a drone, this process is expedited, and a larger field of view is created for members involved. Additionally, fewer resources are required, such as sky-jacks required to reach various structure heights. So, by using a drone for these purposes, the industrial sector saves on resources but produces greater results in less time.
Think about the benefit of industrial zones in difficult terrain (or lack thereof) areas too. Oil rigs, for example, are sometimes separated and difficult to navigate. Along with needing to examine the numerous mechanisms to keep it working, oil rigs have plenty of hazard areas as well such as flare tips.
But, as you can imagine, a flying drone gets around these obstacles without issue. Like the flare tip example (an exhaust port punctuated with dangerous fire), our drone can search for potential damage or conduct routine inspection, removing the risk of fire hazard from people entirely.
Drones also increase sales potential for investors to new construction projects. Where agents normally tour through an area- highlighting the advantages of building on the hypothetical terrain -drones aid this by providing new angles for interested contractors. Using aerial shots or different views, one can highlight a variety of advantages from chosen land, all with the help of our drone services.
Our drone services utilize all the mentioned advantages. We believe safety is paramount, and that’s why our services are equipped with all the best features to achieve optimal standards when conducting drone operation.
Finally, Inspectifly can create three dimension and virtual images of buildings, terrain, and structures. This can be yielded into potential future planning by developing 3D models with applicable software, strengthening your team’s ability to fine tune their construction approach.
