Spectro, and its associated company Jet-Care have announced their appointment by AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica Company, as approved suppliers for debris and oil analysis services for all AW139 helicopters.
‘We chose Spectro and Jet-Care to assist in further improving our Technical Services for the AW139 as we can trust their fast, efficient and accurate service,” said Riccardo Del Duca, AW139 Product Support Engineering manager. “Their many years of experience in this specialized field and their commitment to quality and customer service are second to none.”
Spectro and Jet-Care utilize advanced analytical capabilities of Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) for in-depth examination of debris recovered from oil samples, filters or chip detectors.
