Industrial thermography

Inspection, maintenance, fault management

Industrial thermography by drone allows to inspect various industrial equipment in search of malfunction points without stopping production.

It facilitates the management of maintenance operations and allows to predict and avoid costly breakdowns. It is also a tool suitable for monitoring certain processes for a better control of the quality and consistency of production.

Industrial thermography methodology

What is industrial thermography by drone?

A high-definition inspection

Industrial thermography by drone consists of inspecting complex industrial installations using a drone equipped with a high-definition thermal camera.

This capture of infrared images allows us to subsequently develop :
  • 5A thermal mapping
  • 5The thermogram
  • 5A thermal 3D model

The advantage of this method is its simplicity of implementation. It avoids the use of scaffolding to provide access to the various machines or pipes. It guarantees the safety of operators and does not require a production stoppage.

Application of industrial thermography

Some examples of thermal inspections in an industrial environment


Industrial thermography by drone allows to detect heat losses at the level of a furnace. Indeed, over time, the materials of industrial furnaces age and deteriorate. This can cause heat loss, which leads to overconsumption of energy. We can also see a drop in productivity or quality in production.

Thermal inspection is a valuable tool for anticipating, planning and rationalising maintenance operations on this type of equipment.


Industrial thermography by drone allows to detect excessive heating of mechanical parts leading to premature wear and a source of breakdowns.

The drone helps to easily visualise the highest or most difficult-to-access elements from various angles without taking risks.

For example, we can cite the thermal inspection of flares on petroleum sites.


Many manufacturing processes use heat, or on the contrary cold, for one or more stages of the process. Thermal monitoring can be useful for controlling the quality and homogeneity of production.

Industrial thermography by drone is perfectly suited thanks to its simplicity of implementation.

For example, we have monitored the cooling of metal sheet piles by drone in cooling towers to guarantee manufacturing quality.

Industrial thermography by drone, which is less expensive than an intervention by helicopter, is a new tool at the service of electrical network managers

It allows to easily detect localised overheating on cables or transformers due to the wear of certain elements.

In addition, the drone facilitates the visual inspection of the lines to monitor their condition and trigger maintenance operations.


Industrial thermography by drone allows to check the internal condition of pipes carrying fluids, vapours or smoke.

The advantage is to be aware of any clogging to trigger a maintenance operation as quickly as possible before the obstruction. The temperature differences highlighted by the onboard thermal camera of the drone allow to visualise the presence of deposits in the pipes.

Our expertise in aerial thermography also extends to other sectors of activity :
