Boost component health with WearCheck

WearCheck will once again be exhibiting at African Utility Week (AUW), which takes place in Cape Town from 14 to 16 May 2019.

We offer specialist condition monitoring services across many industries, including the electrical/power generation sector.

Primarily important is boosting the health of components, including transformers, engines, gearboxes and electric motors. Optimum health of components is achieved through regular assessment and used oil analysis. Examination of the physical condition of components helps avoid unplanned failure, while transformer health is monitored through regular assessment of insulating fluid.

Compared with the cost of premature failure, regularly-scheduled oil testing is a cost-effective and sound maintenance practice that helps optimise the life of components. Other condition monitoring techniques include vibration analysis, balancing, alignment, motor circuit analysis and thermography.

WearCheck first opened in Durban, South Africa over 40 years ago, and today the company boasts a network of 16 laboratories in nine countries across Africa and beyond, and processes in excess of 750 000 samples each year.
