Buried deep within an engine, bearings are tricky to monitor using traditional methods. JetSCAN® succeeds by using advanced scanning electron microscope and energy-dispersive X-ray technologies to analyse oil debris samples collected from magnetic chip detectors and/or oil filters.
Embedded expert knowledge of the engine design is then developed into an algorithm, enabling JetSCAN® to deliver a full evaluation and interpretation of the analytical data - and in some cases a “fly/no fly” recommendation.
JetSCAN® is well suited to differentiating between benign “normal function" debris and active wear debris – the latter being more indicative of conditions that require operation or maintenance action.
In some cases, this capability to pinpoint problem areas and their significance/risk can prevent engine removal, saving on both expense and downtime.
JetSCAN® is an intuitive, automated system that can be operated with minimal training. Maintenance personnel will be able to produce fast, accurate and objective results with little domain knowledge or specialist experience.
The unit comes in a ruggedised, high impact case with integrated wheels, handles and fork-lift points for fast and easy set up and deployment.
JetSCAN® customers receive comprehensive technical support. In addition to a 24x7 Help Desk (contract dependant), we have support centres staffed with experienced engineers who are ready to help with any problems that may arise.
Many customers also choose to have access to a secure website, which serves as a useful resource for operating procedures, user manual updates and additional JetSCAN® “community” information.
