Cooling Towers

The use of AI to detect cracks, corrosion and other defects.

Inspecting Cooling Towers

Equipped with high-resolution cameras and thermal imaging capabilities, our drones swiftly navigate around cooling towers, capturing detailed imagery of their entire structure. This enables us to detect cracks, corrosion, and other defects accurately, even in hard-to-reach areas. Our team of skilled inspectors analyses the collected data and uses AI to detect cracks and other repairs required. This provides actionable insights, empowering clients to make informed decisions about maintenance.

  1. Thermal Imaging: Thermal cameras can detect defects by measuring the heat emitted from the surface. Variations in temperature can indicate the presence of cracks or other anomalies.
  2. Remote Sensing: Drones equipped with cameras or other sensors can capture images of structures that are difficult or dangerous to access, allowing inspectors to identify defects from a safe distance.
  3. Machine Learning and AI: Advanced image processing techniques, including machine learning and artificial intelligence, can be used to analyse images and automatically detect defects, potentially improving the speed and accuracy of inspections.

By combining these techniques, OR3D GEO can capture detailed imagery to detect a wide range of defects, helping to ensure the integrity and safety of structures and equipment.

The Benefits of the use of AI to detect cracks

Early Detection

AI algorithms can detect cracks and structural defects at their earliest stages, allowing for prompt intervention before they escalate into larger issues.
