Minimize Downtime
While Ensuring Safety

Thermal inspection of commercial buildings, sites, and infrastructure is one of the most efficient ways to gather critical data. At FulcrumAir, we perform thermal imaging inspections from above via our state-of-the-art mapping drone, which allows us to survey large areas at once and access remote and difficult-to-reach locations. Our services are useful for inspecting facilities, pipelines, roads, waterways, bridges, airports, powerlines, and solar farms. Thermal sensors detect energy waste, moisture intrusion, electrical problems, corrosion, cracks, leaks, plumbing and structural defects, and more. Performing inspections remotely means minimal disruption to work and quick detection of issues to be fixed.

Minimize Energy Loss By Identifying Leaks

Leaks and inefficiencies can be not only expensive but also dangerous. Identifying problems early through thermal sensing means issues can be corrected before becoming more serious, minimizing additional energy loss and saving money down the road. Thermal inspections maximize performance, enhance safety, and ensure compliance.

Perform Surveys in Hard-to-Reach Areas

Utilizing drones for facility inspection, especially thermal imaging building inspections, is incredibly efficient. Manual inspections of large facilities can be time-consuming and costly, while aerial footage offers a complete view in less time. UAVs also provide a safer alternative to traditional methods of inspecting powerlines, wind turbines, rigs, refineries, and more.

Pinpoint Hotspots & Detect Structural Defects

Thermal cameras can pinpoint the source of deficiencies, defects, and structural inefficiencies. Thermal sensors are non-invasive, but highly accurate, providing useful data for decision-makers regarding necessary repairs. Recognizing the issues and identifying the exact source of the problem saves time, money, and resources.

SITUATION

A large refinery requires a thermal inspection to maintain compliance with regulatory practices. The facility spans several acres and would take many hours to gather data manually. Some areas are difficult to access.

CHALLENGE

Performing a manual inspection of the entire refinery is time-consuming and costly and may not be performed often enough. As such, leaks and inefficiencies may go undetected and cost the facility millions of dollars in energy loss and emergency repairs.

SOLUTION

At FulcrumAir, we remain ‘Always Above,’ and we love to help our clients do the same. Utilizing drones for infrastructure inspections allows for quick and frequent surveys. Aerial thermal inspections can be performed as often as possible or necessary to stay on top of compliance requirements. Frequent inspection minimizes the possibility of leaks and other issues getting out of hand. A full thermal survey via our E2500 mapping drone takes only a matter of minutes and provides all the necessary data to identify and document structural deficiencies and required improvements.
