UK-based Spectro and its U.S. sister company Jet-Care (Booth No. C3516), providers of equipment condition monitoring services, announced their appointment by AgustaWestland as approved suppliers for debris and oil analysis services for all AW139s. Spectro and Jet-Care utilize the advanced analytical capabilities of scanning electron microscopes for in-depth examination of debris recovered from oil samples, filters or chip detectors, allowing detailed investigation into the metallic and non-metallic debris, helping to pinpoint the component generating the debris.

UK-headquartered Spectro, and Jet-Care, both divisions and trading names of Palace International, Ltd. (Booth No. 1523), have returned to EBACE with their largest ever range of performance monitoring programs, focusing on the Pratt & Whitney Canada series of small turbofans and turboprops. At the same time, Jet-Care is highlighting its condition monitoring service, which it now is offering to helicopter operators.
Spectro in the UK and its Jet-Care sister operation in the U.S. (Booth No. 220) report growing demand for their oil and engine debris analysis services. The two companies’ programs highlight damage and abnormal wear to engine components such as disks, blades, stators and gears that might escape routine flight-line inspection.
With aircraft being pushed toward the edges of their flight envelopes here in the daily aerial displays at Farnborough International, their crews need real certainty that all is well with the engines. Helping to give them this assurance is local company Jet-Care which is providing its patented oil and engine debris analysis service for all aircraft here at the show this week.
