Gastops is recognized worldwide for innovative solutions improving the effectiveness of operating and maintaining critical equipment. For over 35 years, our solutions have been used in Defense, Aerospace, Energy and Marine applications to optimize the availability, readiness, maintenance, performance and safety of complex rotating equipment.

Gastops’ products and services add value throughout the life cycle of complex rotating equipment from the design stage through to in-service operations and support. We design, manufacture and support advanced equipment fluid sensing and analysis products including on-line, full flow oil debris sensors and at-line oil analysis systems. Based on core competencies of analysis, modeling and simulation, software engineering, condition monitoring, and repair and overhaul, Gastops also provides a range of specialized technical and engineering services to assist in the design, development and in-service support of machinery control, monitoring and maintenance systems.

Our customer solutions are found wherever equipment applications demand the highest standards of safety, reliability, availability and cost-effective operations.The most common of these are critical rotating equipment such as gas turbine engines found in aviation, marine, power generation and gas compression applications, diesel engines in marine and railway applications and gearboxes in aviation, marine, energy, and industrial applications.



MetalSCAN is a state-of-the-art, on-line oil debris sensor providing real-time engine and gearbox protection and health monitoring on the world’s most advanced aircraft including the F22 Raptor, F35 Joint Strike Fighter, EurofighterTyphoon, and the new generation of Pratt and Whitney Pure Power geared turbofan engines powering the new Bombardier C Series, Mitsubishi Regional Jet, Airbus A320neo, lrkut MC21 and Embraer and E2 aircraft


ChipCHECK brings lab analysis to the flight line, solving a market need for at-line analysis of wear debris. ChipCHECK provides automated analysis of chips at the flight line—size and alloy type,

of the individual particles found in the debris sample—within minutes and with no special technical expertise.

Not much larger than a carry-on suitcase, ChipCHECK employs laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology coupled with digital imaging, to provide a faster, broader range of material identification with no vacuum requirements, cutting the average analysis time to under two minutes.

Already adopted by major airlines and operators in France, Austria, the UAE, Canada, the USA, Indonesia and Australia—ChipCHECK is the future!
