Improving District Heating Maintenance Programs with Drone Technology 

02-18-2020 11:28

Summary

Many district heating systems were installed decades ago. They are aging and failing, and locating leaks can be time consuming, ineffective, and expensive utilizing traditional methods of inspection. Drone-enabled thermal inspections are proving to be highly-effective and affordable, making annual inspections more practical. This presentation will highlight several universities that are having drone-enabled inspections performed on an annual basis and how the early and accurate detection of failures is helping these universities reduce maintenance costs and realize significant energy savings.
