 - February 12, 2012, 8:50 PM

Jet-Care, which provides oil- and debris-analysis services, announced a number of new contracts yesterday here at Heli-Expo 2012 in Dallas.

Among the new customers is Delta Helicopters, a private, family-owned business in Alberta, Canada. The company operates a fleet of 19 helicopters from six bases across Canada. Delta uses the Jet-Care debris-analysis program to allow in-depth examination of particles found in fluid samples from filters or magnetic chip detectors.

Jet-Care will also provide its analysis, information and technical guidance to Ontario Police Air Support to help keep its two Eurocopter AS350 helicopters ready to respond to emergency calls. The air support unit operates 365 days a year, as does Jet-Care.

Also announced at Heli-Expo was a decision by the U.S. Coast Guard to renew its contract for oil and debris analysis. The contract enables the Coast Guard to continue to monitor the health of the Turbomeca Arriel 2C2CG engines powering its fleet of H-65 helicopters. “At Jet-Care we carefully tailor our approach to each customer. That, combined with a dedicated commitment to quality control, ensures we provide a first class service,” said sales and marketing manager Josh Wagner.

Jet-Care (Booth No. 7508) uses scanning electron microscopes to locate the probable source of debris and distinguish between minor concerns and critical situations.

Jet-Care is located in Cedar Knolls, N.J., and provides its services for operators and OEMs. The company holds full accreditation from manufacturers, including Eurocopter, Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Sikorsky, Turbomeca. Jet-Care has customers in more than 110 countries.
