The objective of this project was to complete an internal inspection of a stack linear. This inspection is typical completed with a large cost and exposing personnel to safety hazards. The UAV allowed the inspection to be completed in one day. This type of inspection can be planned and completed more efficient than the typical inspection. The UAV had prop guards and was tethered to ensure it was not pulled out the top of the stack by the draft.
- Onsite time 6 hours
- Flight Time 1.5 hours
During the inspection monitors were viewed by inspection personnel to ensure any critical deficiencies were detected immediately. After the inspection the video was reviewed and a formal report was developed using pictures pulled from the video showing deficiencies. The deficiencies were clearly located on the stack in the report with the use of drawings. The report included repairs recommendations for all deficiencies.
