Flare inspection via drone is much more cost effective and efficient than typical flare inspections. Removing the human from the equation always helps to reduce risk and cost – and where that can be applied to extreme or complex situations, the savings are much more substantial. This is the case with drone flare inspections.
Unlike humans, a drone can reach the height of the flare in under a minute. A live video feed allows the inspector to monitor progress in real time and carry out the required inspections without taking a foot off the ground so there’s much less hassle for everyone involved.
Real Time Kinematics (RTK) allow for accurate and precise recording throughout the inspection. The data and information uncovered in the initial inspection can then be used to more effectively plan future shutdowns, further saving money and time while reducing risk and unnecessary downtime.
And as the entire inspection is carried out by a UAV, the risks are minimal. Even so, a complete risk assessment and job analysis is completed prior to each flight to ensure the safety of everyone involved with the job and to ensure the drone flare inspection goes exactly as planned.
As you can see, the cost saving and improved safety implications of using drones for flare inspections are significant.
