Heat Medium Heater INternal Inspection

A Cost Analysis

Furnace Case Study

In November 2019, Osprey Integrity was tasked with the internal inspection of a Heat Medium Heater in accordance with ASME Section 1. The asset was 55m in height, and a full internal inspection was required. 

We were able to deploy our Flyability Elios 2 for a comprehensive assessment of the Heater, in a fraction of the time. 

When comparing the use of UAS in the inspection world to the traditional methods of inspection, the results are overwhelmingly decisive:

While maintaining a comparable deliverable to the ‘in person’ inspection process, we were able to reduce the client’s total expense on this job by 94%. With the ability to have your piece of equipment back up and running in as little as 3 days, compared to one week or more, it is easy to see why this technology is proving it’s worth across the industry.
