Inspection of chimneys by drone
In the case of technical installations such as chimneys, inspections must be carried out at regular intervals. Without the use of a drone, the chimneys have to be climbed and inspected by specially trained specialists. This is expensive for new chimneys but relatively safe. In the case of older chimneys or chimneys that are decommissioned, climbing is an enormous safety risk in addition to the time required, as the condition of a chimney is not visible from the ground. By using a drone, safety risks can be avoided. With our drone, we can easily and quickly film and photograph chimneys from all perspectives without long lead times.
Inspection of chemical tanks and tank systems
For the preparation of expert reports or for determining the condition of chemical tanks and silos, it is necessary to inspect the systems at regular intervals. Horizontal tanks can be inspected by walking through them. Due to the use of our equipment, such as telescopic rods with special cameras, a direct tank inspection is often unnecessary. Vertical tanks are very difficult to inspect without a drone. If the tanks have a manhole, a scaffold can be set up in the tank to carry out the inspection. The erection of a scaffold is tedious, costly and, last but not least, always poses a safety risk. With our drone we can fly in the inside of tanks easily, quickly and inexpensively and create meaningful images. For tanks that do not have adequate access for personnel or drones, we offer solutions tailored to the tank.
Inspection of tank farms, media lines and other technical equipment
With our drone, extensive media lines, pipelines, tank farms and large areas of any kind, such as entire company sites, can be efficiently flown off and detailed recordings can be made. During the inspection, the client is able to track and moderate the recording directly on a tablet computer.
Our recordings are particularly suitable for compliance with control obligations (e. g. environmental authority, operational safety) by the legislator, internal and external audits. When using the drone, operation benefits from the following advantages: short lead time, perfect documentation of events, improved operational planning and improved operational safety.
Inspection of halls and structures at great heights by drone
Hall roofs or technical systems at great heights such as smoke detectors, crane rails etc. can only be inspected with lifting platforms. Inspection with aerial work platforms requires a longer lead time and, if necessary, to clear the affected hall. This can lead to considerable costs and security issues. With our drone we fly quickly and safely to the places to be inspected. The simple and safe testing of smoke detectors – even in places that are difficult to access – is just as easy with our drone.
Questions + Answers
Can I book Kopterflug as a private person?
We work solely for clients in the public and commercial sector.
How much does it cost to use the Kopterflug UAVs?
In most cases, our inspection tasks – not least because of the shorter downtimes – are considerably cheaper than the use of traditional inspection methods. Due to the variety of our orders and clients, we can only draw up individual offers.
Can UAVs replace industrial climbers or elevating work platforms?
In contrast to industrial climbers, our drone can be positioned perfectly in the three-dimensional space within a very short time and immediately begin the inspection work. As soon as, however, “hands-on” work is required on a system, the use of personnel and technical equipment is required.
Does Kopterflug also issue expert reports?
We do not provide expert reports. Our clients often use our recordings to order expert reports from tank companies, for example.
Does Kopterflug also rent or sell drones?
We are a pure service provider for UAV services and do not sell or rent equipment.
