what did we do:
Performing a thermal inspection of the heat network at Mirom in Roeselare using a drone is an innovative and efficient method for assessing the current condition of the pipelines. Because no leak detection system is active in the oldest parts of the heat network, this method keeps them in optimal condition.
By using a thermal camera, heat losses are detected, being locations where the insulation jacket of the heat pipes no longer insulates, resulting in a map on which any defects are clearly indicated and visualized with RGB graphics and thermal images. By detecting these locations, preventive repairs can be scheduled and an effective leak is prevented.
This method works safer and saves time and costs by detecting insulation defects early.
