Emerson and Spectro Incorporated form exclusive alliance to expand oil analysis offerings
Emerson Process Management and Spectro Incorporated announced an exclusive alliance to combine technical innovation and expertise to deliver expanded best-in-class oil analysis solutions. By integrating Emerson’s industry-leading 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 Analyzer, the multi-functional analyzer that is uniquely capable of detecting most lubricant-related problems in gears, pumps, compressors, turbines, engines, hydraulics, and process machinery.
Effective October 1, 2012, Spectro will become the exclusive, world-wide supplier of the CSI 5200 Machinery Health Oil Analyzer product and services offering.
“Emerson and Spectro will work closely as we continue to develop leading technology solutions for the process industry,” said Ron Martin, vice president/general manager of Emerson’s Asset Optimization and Lifecycle Care business. “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.”
“The relationship with Emerson opens the door for customers to expand their predictive maintenance programs by accessing the expertise available with Spectro’s extensive oil analysis product line, industry knowledge and global distribution network,” said Brian Mitchell, president and CEO of Spectro Inc. “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”
