MRS Training & Rescue are proud to be one of the first companies to offer internal drone silo inspection services throughout the UK. Our drone pilots are trained to be able to perform onsite drone inspections which are free from risks – and can help farmers identify faults quickly and without the need to wait for a planned maintenance shut down. We can also produce a report and live video footage which can be shared with the customer.
Our drone inspections allow farmers to take a close look at the interior of their storage facilities without the need to risk anyone entering the space. Bypassing the need for time consuming and expensive scaffolding.
When inspecting silos on farms, our specialist drone pilots will initially do a fly through of the space. This is then followed up by further flights to enable them to get close and inspect any known issues.
The drone we use has an inbuilt 4K optical camera that can give detailed images down to 0.18 mm/px resolution to spot the tiniest faults. It also has a powerful lighting system and thermal imaging capabilities, which can help identify issues with the insulation of the silo.
With an overall dimension just below 40cm (15.7 in) our drone can fly in tight spaces and easily navigate around obstacles.
The drone is only suitable for areas that do not have DSEAR rated explosive environments, but if the silos have been cleaned there should not be explosive materials such as dust, present.
