Using drones for mining is safer, faster and more effective than sending out inspectors or using manned aircraft for inspections. Droneworxs has been offering drone services to the mining industry for years and our experience has led to being one of the most in demand companies for aerial mapping.

Drone Surveying & Mapping

As we said above, drones are much more cost effective, safer and faster when it comes to mining. There is no need to hire an expensive manned aircraft, or rely on a satellite which is also costly. Our drones capture high resolution images that, unlike satellites, can get closer to the ground and are unaffected by cloud. Our typical map resolution is 3cm per pixel – that is, detailed enough to see golfball and matchbox sized objects, though we can provide a higher resolution if you need it.

Unlike traditional mapping methods which put lives at risk and interrupt operations, UAVs cause no disruption and remove the safety risks. With a drone there is no area that is off limits or unsafe. Our experienced pilots control everything remotely, alongside you, so you can be sure that you get all the information you need. We can provide complete 3D terrain models that are accurate to 5-8cm, and they’re fully geo-referenced and ortho-rectified – so you can use them for measurements and calculations.

More and more companies are discovering the advantages that drones have to offer, from the cost savings to to the increase in efficiency and productivity.

flare stack inspections

Drones and Flare Stack Inspection

Many times, surmounting huge heights could be a thing of worry especially when you’ve got a job to do such as taking a decent and clear image of a building or probably, inspecting gas combustion in an industrial setting. Ideally, flare stack inspection could be an expensive, time-consuming and stressful process. This is especially if there isn’t enough space to use a helicopter to carry out the exercise albeit at a higher cost. Due to the immense level of heat produced by flare stacks, it is imperative to devise a mechanism that will be responsive and react fast to this need. Usually, flare stack inspection becomes necessary if you are keen on determining some physical properties or other parameters or you probably want to carry out research or study. Due to the risks and high temperature (over 1000 degrees Celsius), you do not wish to climb the stairs to the top of the refinery or endanger your life by getting close to the unimaginable heat that is being generated. However, before attempting to climb the stairs or using a sky lift to view the stack, it must be put off first for several hours, and this has enormous economic consequences. […]

Thermal Imaging: The Newest Innovation in Drone Inspections

More and more now, drones are being used to inspect many types of infrastructure. They are low-cost and easy to maneuver, which makes them great options for inspecting things such as oil rigs, buildings, wind turbines, and much more. They also don’t put human lives in danger and they are perfect for the jobs. Most people assume that drone inspections are strictly performed by using normal high definition cameras to view whatever needs to be inspected. While this is true many times, a new technology that you should be familiar with is thermal imaging. What Is Thermal Imaging? Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of thermal imaging. Scientifically put, it displays differences in the thermal energy given off my objects. So, what exactly does that mean? Here’s an example that might help you visualise it. If you are standing behind a solid wall, and a thermal imaging camera is filming behind that wall, it will be able to detect you. Since your body heat radiates much more heat than the wall, you would show up as being much more lighter in colour than the wall and you would be easy to see. The warmer the object, the […]
