Expert Drone Silo Inspection Services
What Is A Drone Silo Inspection?
A drone silo inspection is a procedure where drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are utilised to survey and assess the condition of silos. These inspections involve capturing high-resolution images and generating detailed 3D models of the silo’s interior and exterior.
This technique provides a safe, efficient, and cost-effective method to identify potential issues such as structural defects, corrosion, or material build-up, without the need for manual entry, which can be dangerous and time-consuming. The collected data aids in preventive maintenance, ensuring the longevity and safe operation of the silos.
Precision Silo Assessments with Drones
Deep-Dive Silo Interior Surface Inspection
Interior inspections of silos present unique challenges, due to the often confined and complex nature of these spaces. Utilising drone technology, we are able to deliver a detailed examination of these interior surfaces.
Drones, armed with high-resolution cameras, can generate 3D models of the interior space. This data can be utilised to identify potential issues such as cracking, corrosion, or material build-up, which would be invisible to the human eye or even more traditional surveying techniques.

Comprehensive Exterior Silo Surface Assessment
The external structure of a silo is critical to its overall integrity and performance. Drones offer an unmatched vantage point to inspect these areas thoroughly.
Their aerial capabilities coupled with LiDAR sensors and high-definition imaging technology allow for detailed surface modelling and analysis.
By identifying visible damage, deformations, or signs of weathering on the silo’s exterior surface, we can alert to potential structural concerns before they become significant issues.

Cutting-Edge Drone Solutions for Silo Inspections
Accurate Concrete Structure Examination
Concrete integrity is crucial for silo stability and performance. By leveraging drones equipped with LiDAR sensors, we can obtain detailed point cloud data of the silo’s concrete surfaces.
This allows for detection of minute cracks, hollow areas, and potential distortions that may threaten the silo’s structural integrity.
Additionally, thermal imaging can be employed to detect moisture ingress, a common issue in concrete structures that can lead to serious structural concerns.
Unmatched Safety in Silo Inspections with Drones
Silo Insulation Inspection with Drone Thermal Imaging
Drone technology takes insulation inspections to new heights. The thermal imaging cameras mounted on drones can scan large areas of insulation for temperature differentials.
These can indicate problems such as heat leakage or hidden moisture damage, which might compromise the silo’s energy efficiency or lead to more severe structural issues.
This data-driven approach facilitates early intervention, ultimately prolonging the lifespan of the silo’s insulation.

Thorough Silo Roof Feeding Ports Inspection
Roof feeding ports are critical points in a silo’s operation. Drones make inspecting these areas both safe and efficient.
Using a combination of high-resolution imaging and advanced flight capabilities, drones can quickly identify damages, blockages, or material build-up, which might obstruct normal operation and lead to inefficiencies or risks to safety.
Minimise Risk with Drone Silo Inspections
Base and Pit Concrete Structures Data Capture
The base and pit structures of a silo are often overlooked due to their inaccessibility. However, drones can easily access and survey these areas, providing valuable data on the conditions of these foundational elements.
The drones generate high-resolution images and LiDAR scans, which can reveal cracks, disintegration, or distortions, thereby enabling timely repairs and maintenance.
Damage detection is a fundamental part of any silo inspection, and drones bring unparalleled precision to this process. With the ability to detect cracks, corrosion, moisture damage, and even grain residues, drones help uncover issues that can hamper the silo’s operational efficiency. The comprehensive data collected from these inspections not only flags immediate repair needs but also informs preventive maintenance strategies, promoting the longevity of the silo.
