THERMAL AND VISUAL FLARE INSPECTION

 

ROAV7 is specialized in visual and thermal inspection of flares. Using high definition and thermal cameras, our UAVs are able to inspect quickly and without shutting down live flares, flare tips, access ladders, handrails, pipes and radiation shields. We operate for spot verifications on an identified problem or to prepare a shutdown months several months in advance, and inspect the whole structure.

We provide our clients with :

–  High definition photographs
–  Thermal analyses of the heat constraints
–  3D modeling to detect structure deformations

In emergency situations, ROAV7 can easily and quickly deploy its solutions for immediate results on any part of the flare.

FLARE STACKS INSPECTION BY UAVs

 

Gaining easy access to flare stacks without puting employees at risk, without shutting down, for a precise spot of a global analyses of the installations.

NO SHUTDOWN

Our UAVs operate on live flares, avoiding million dollar shutdowns.

INCREASED SAFETY

No ropes or scaffolds are necessary to access installations at dangerous heights, significantly improving safety of inspections.

SHORT OPERATION TIME

A few minutes flights and one or two days of operations are sufficient to have a global and accurate inspection of a flare.

PERFECT ACCURACY

The whole structure of the flare is photographed in high resolution on a chosen date, enabling the comparison of anomalies in the future.

EASY TO DEPLOY

ROAV7 operates by teams of two and a backpack coçntaining the UAV and the remote control. A minimalist equipment for fast deployment.

CASE STUDY : FLARE INSPECTION BY UAV

FPSO Flare inspection in Congo and Angola


ROAV7 has inspected four flares by UAV on FPSO for visual and thermal analyses 
off the shores of Congo and Angola. The UAVs kept to a safe distance of 20 to 40 meters from the flares, for an altitude of 120 meters.

ROAV7’s client was able to assess key equipment deteriorations such as the flare tip, and see anomalies with a high precision. The operator was able to plan his next shutdown for an efficient intervention without stopping production.

CONGO : ROAV7 ANALYSES THE FLARE OF AN OIL TERMINAL 


The visual and thermal inspection of a flare has been conducted by ROAV7 in Congo
 to assess possible damage, after suspicions of dysfunction. Without shutting down, waiting for the structures to cool down and sending men with cords, inspection and maintenance services were able to assess the situation based on UAV images.
