Emerson Process Management and Spectro Incorporated announce an exclusive alliance to combine technical innovation and expertise to deliver expanded oil analysis services. By integrating Emerson’s oil analysis applications for the industrial process industry with Spectro’s extensive oil analysis product line and expertise, users gain more meaningful and accurate information on the health of their machinery, helping to prevent costly machine repairs.

Under the new agreement, Spectro gains rights to a suite of Emerson-developed and patent-protected Intellectual Property (IP) in the field of oil analysis for predictive machine maintenance. Included in this portfolio of IP are Emerson’s AMS Suite oil analysis software module as well as the CSI 5200 Machinery Health Oil Analyser, the multi-functional analyser that is capable of detecting most lubricant-related problems in gears, pumps, compressors, turbines, engines, hydraulics, and process machinery.

With effect from 1 October 2012, Spectro will become the exclusive, world-wide supplier of the CSI 5200 Machinery Health Oil Analyser product and services offering.

Ron Martin, Vice President/General Manager of Emerson’s Asset Optimization and Lifecycle Care business, says: “Emerson and Spectro will work closely as we continue to develop leading technology solutions for the process industry. By aligning with Spectro Inc. to deliver advanced oil analysis solutions, we can better provide our customers with predictive diagnostics to make more informed decisions about their assets.”

Brian Mitchell, President and CEO of Spectro Inc, says: “The relationship with Emerson opens the door for customers to expand their predictive maintenance programmes by accessing the expertise available with Spectro’s extensive oil analysis product line, industry knowledge and global distribution network. This means that Emerson customers can now take advantage of the same long-term technology solutions and growth path currently available to Spectro customers worldwide.”
