Benefits of Aerial Inspection


Aerial Inspection is a new paradigm of inspections and it is helping industries improve quality of data acquisition and efficiency. While aerial inspection is still new and evolving, most companies in Dallas Texas are already using it. If your company is not yet using aerial inspection, it could either be because you are not aware of its benefits. Without much ado, let us take a look at some of the benefits of using aerial inspection.

  1. It minimizes obvious health risks and dangers 

Aerial inspection enables safe and easy inspections of complex and tall structures. It is especially useful in the inspections of facilities such as pipelines, flare stacks, and gas and oil refineries. Aerial inspection eliminates the need for inspectors to access hostile environment physically, where factors such as radiation, weather, waves, wind, and height can lead to health issues and accidents. 

  1. Easily shared data

Using standard analytical tools and software, images and other information that have been collected through aerial inspection from a project site can be effectively used to generate reliable, standard reports that can be shared easily across different sectors. Furthermore, the information can also be customized for various industries, making it very easy for professionals in different industries to easily share and interpret relevant data.

  1. Save money and time

Aerial inspection minimizes the amount of time and high cost required to erect tall ladders, access roofs and towers, aerial lifts, swing stages, and other heavy equipment usually used in inspections.  Besides, there is no need to acquire or hire ladders, large pickup tracks, and heavy equipment for each inspection. This means that aerial inspection will save you a lot of money. And since it takes less time to get the job done, it means that it saves you time and you can be able to inspect more assets in just one day. 

  1. Low insurance cost

Aerial inspection is relatively a safe practice and it does not put the lives of workers and inspectors in danger. For these reasons, insurance requirements are typically mission-based and minimal. This is the main reason insurance requirements for manual inspection come with much higher cost.

  1. Collection of higher detail and in-depth data

Aerial inspection is the easiest way to do any inspection exercise because the drones and UAV s are equipped well with obstacle avoidance capabilities. This means that navigation is easy around close structures, and this allows for minute details to be captured.
