Overview

Did you know that WearCheck is still the leading oil condition monitoring company in Africa, after 40 years in business?

We specialise in reliability solutions services and the scientific analysis of oil and other fluids from mechanical and electrical systems. We help to boost the availability and reliability of components, thereby helping our customers to operate more efficiently and to save money on maintenance.

Our customers operate in many industries such as mining and earthmoving, transport, shipping, industrial, aircraft and electrical.

Alongside WearCheck’s traditional fluid analysis services - which cover the analysis of fuels, transformer oils, coolants, greases and filters – WearCheck customers also have access to our reliability solutions (RS) services and our transformer chemistry services (TCS).

Our RS team specialises in thermal imaging, vibration analysis, laser alignment, balancing and a host of other RS techniques.
