CONFINED SPACE INSPECTION

THE PROBLEM

Confined space inspections can be slow, risky and cost a lot of money. Normally a worker is required to enter these potentially hazardous environments, putting themselves and potentially the rescue team behind them at risk.

Furthermore, these environments can have poor ventilation which allows hazardous atmospheres to quickly develop and increase the chance of something going wrong.

Challenges that face confined space inspections today include:

  • Expensive; costs involved to prepare the site to be inspected can include scaffolding, cranes and heavy machinery
  • Dangerous; Personnel may be exposed to hazardous substances, insufficient oxygen or challenging physical conditions that limit or restrict the technician’s ability to handle the test equipment
  • Extended downtime, as vast safety requirements are required when humans enter confined spaces

When a visual inspection needs to take place, downtime can often be one of the biggest revenue losses to a business

THE SOLUTION

The solution is to eliminate the human element altogether. Solving this problem has been one of the biggest hurdles in modern visual inspections, as there was never an alternative to sending in people.

The Flyability Elios 2 removes the human element from inspections, which is the most indispensable aspect of any high-risk work.

INCREASING SAFETY MARGINS

The ability to increase safety margins on any project is a big bonus. Our confined space inspection methods have the ability to do this in a few ways. Minimising working at heights, reducing confined space entry’s and eliminating the risk exposure to staff are just some of the reasons the ROI is beneficial.

COST SAVINGS

Estimated cost savings at any one facility can be huge. By just removing the need to use specialised equipment such as bucket trucks, cranes and scaffolding savings can be in the hundreds of thousands. Moreover, savings are made when engineers and managers are not longer required to travel onsite since reports are inclusive and actionable (travel expenses being saved).

IMPROVING EFFICIENCY 

Improving efficiency by reducing inspection duration is a big draw card. Normally visual inspections with humans require specialised equipment, rope access or bucket trucks, therefore requiring operations to be shut down for long periods. The ELIOS 2 can quickly gather video/imagery of multiple angles from hard to reach areas when compared to traditional methods.

BETTER DECISION MAKING

Having the ability to make better decisions is crucial when it comes to big projects. The ability to reach difficult areas and provide pin point accuracy for repairs is incredibly valuable. On top of this, determining the life cycle management of an asset and creating catalogues of data enables year over year analysis.

SAVING LIVES

Using the Elios 2, we can almost completely eliminate the need for workers to enter potentially dangerous environments to perform visual inspections

REDUCING COSTS & DOWNTIME

Our drone inspections can eliminate the need for unnecessary scaffolding, equipment or heavy machinery once required to inspect difficult-to-reach areas

GET BETTER, HIGH QUALITY DATA

Using the Flyability Elios 2 we can get very close, high quality 4k video, 12MP stills and create indoor 3D Models to get an accurate representation of your asset

Keep your people and assets safe

Using drones to inspect confined spaces reduces the time and cost of planning, equipment, and labor while minimizing the risks to human workers in the confined spaces.

The drones are ideal for spaces that would traditionally require expensive and high-risk inspections, specialised and costly equipment and tools. In addition, the drones provide high quality and comprehensive data critical for effective planning for the maintenance. Due to the low costs, the companies can perform more frequent inspections, hence make better maintenance decisions.

  • Keep staff outside hazardous and confined spaces
  • Avoid the risk of working at height
  • Reduced asset downtime
  • Less preparation time (no scaffolding, less complex risk assessment)
