We recently invested in excess of R1.7 million in new high-tech equipment in both the transformer and fuel sections of our Joburg-based Speciality laboratory.

The Kruss K11 tensiometer, an ADU 5 distillation unit, a SVM3001 stabinger viscometer as well as the PMA 5 Pensky-Martens closed-cup flash point tester are among the new pieces gracing the countertops in the lab.

These highly accurate, sophisticated instruments - which have boosted the lab productivity by offering new tests and saving time on existing ones - have also reduced the turnaround time to generate customers’ sample results.

Mining Indaba

WearCheck was once again present at Mining Indaba 2017 recently, where many people came to the stand to chat about condition monitoring. This year, WearCheck shared a stand with sister company Set Point Laboratories (SPL), which is also part of holding company Torre Analytical Services.
