Get immediate results with ChipCHECK
ChipCHECK offers the fastest way of making on-site equipment maintenance decisions. It is a field deployable analyzer designed for rapid on-site identification of equipment lube oil. This automated maintenance decision-support tool employs innovative laser spectroscopic technology, which enables on-site analysis of microscopic chip debris. ChipCHECK provides the maintainers with quick, reliable, and conclusive information, including the total number of particles, and the size, shape, and specific alloy classification for each individual particle on the sample.
Gastops developed ChipCHECK as a means of addressing many long standing issues in aerospace and aero-derivative gas turbine markets. ChipCHECK solves these issues by applying innovative material identification spectroscopy, coupled with digital imaging technology. By doing so, ChipCHECK empowers maintainers with the capability of at-line equipment condition assessment within minutes.
Today, typical industry practices determine the condition of equipment based on the metallic content found in the oil – referred to as wear debris. This practice is highly dependent on visual inspection, or an off-site laboratory – requiring a long turnaround time. ChipCHECK eliminates these issues by automatically quantifying the size, shape, and alloy classification of each particle; thereby providing quick, reliable, and conclusive engine health data at-line, on-site. ChipCHECK gives the answers that are needed within minutes – saving a lot of time and money.
