Spectro | Jet-Care, an independent laboratory providing condition monitoring services to the aviation industry, announced they have been chosen by Rolls-Royce to provide debris analysis services to support the Rolls-Royce CorporateCare Enhanced aftermarket service.
Spectro | Jet-Care have partnered with Rolls-Royce to provide debris and filter analysis service to operators enrolled on Rolls-Royce CorporateCare Enhanced contracts. Rolls-Royce has set the standard for this program by providing high quality support as well as increased engine availability, this combined with Spectro | Jet-Care’s fast and efficient laboratory analysis program gives customers an enhanced service offering.
In the unlikely event of a chip or filter indication debris samples will be taken from operators’ engines and sent to one of three Spectro | Jet-Care state of the art laboratories, based in the UK, USA or Switzerland. The analysis is undertaken by an experienced analyst using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) to identify the type of material, quantity, size and appearance enabling quick and accurate decisions to be made by Rolls-Royce and the operator, therefore allowing the aircraft to return to service as quickly as possible. An AOG service is also available 24/7/365.
“We are delighted to be working with Rolls-Royce in providing debris analysis service support to their CorporateCare Enhanced aftermarket customers” said David Glass, Managing Director of Spectro | Jet-Care. “We have been supporting the industry for over 46 years and with fast sample turnaround and experienced technical teams our first-class analysis service combined with the CorporateCare support provides customers with added peace of mind”.
