Condition Monitoring Excellence
Whether commercial vessels or private superyachts, the engineers and captains onboard face the challenge of ensuring that safety and maintenance of their vessels remain a priority, whilst operating in a sector which demands extended operating hours and competitive budgets.
Spectro® assists all sectors of the marine industry: from chartered megayachts and supertankers; to harbour tugboats and off-shore rigs. Its accurate oil analysis services ensure that expensive vessels and sophisticated equipment remain in peak condition. Oil analysis is preventative monitoring at its best and is a recommended aspect of most maintenance procedures - data generated can give a clear indication of the equipment’s condition. With over 37 years of specialist knowledge, Spectro is able to anticipate equipment faults through its precise oil analysis techniques and dedicated commitment to quality control.
Key to Spectro’s service and support is a tailored approach to each client, and it delivers an accurate, fast and flexible 24/7/365 service. Spectro understands that in order to get a truly meaningful data set, results must be tracked to identify indicative trends. Spectro has therefore developed an award-winning reporting program – Engine Condition Health Online® (ECHO). This unique, sophisticated software enables clients to view thoroughly the analysis data generated, and its comprehensive database allows comparison of trends across vessels and equipment.
A significant benefit of Spectro’s comprehensive service is that unlike onboard test-kits, condition monitoring through oil analysis is not done in isolation. Spectro’s vast database allows comparison across all similar equipment, oil grades and determination of normal limits of operation.
Spectro prides itself on a first-class client offering. The company understands the rigorous standards required and responds to the time pressures involved in the maritime industry. Its high standards, state-of-the art laboratories, quality results, experienced analysts, and world-leading knowledge, all ensure that Spectro drives its industry, and is regarded as a partner by many operators, fleet managers, superintendents and captains across the world.
"We have been using Spectro for our oil sample analysis since 2002 and they now cover most of our applicable fleet, along with incidental tests as required.
Their oil sample turnaround is always within a 24 hour period of reaching them and results are easy to read and file. Technical back-up has been helpful in several cases and I have no hesitation in recommending them to other management companies".
