WearCheck saves money and time for customers

Ensuring industrial machinery operates at peak performance with reduced maintenance costs – this is the expertise of condition monitoring specialist company, WearCheck.

Operating an extensive network of 15 world-class laboratories in nine countries across Africa and beyond, WearCheck is recognised as a leader in the preventive maintenance field, servicing a wide range of industries with an array of different monitoring techniques. The company has clients in industrial sectors ranging from power generation and renewable energy to mining, fleet management, aviation, maritime and more.

WearCheck’s core business is the scientific analysis of used oil, fuel and other fluids, whereby samples are analysed in the laboratory for trace particles which indicate which component is suffering unusual wear patterns. This information is assessed by a team of specialised diagnosticians, who make recommendations on the required remedial action for the component in question.

Additional predictive maintenance techniques offered by WearCheck – which are employed depending on the type of machinery being monitored – include asset reliability care (ARC) services, water analysis, transformer chemistry services and advanced field services (AFS) such as non-destructive testing, technical compliance and rope condition assessment. The company also offers lubrication enabled reliability (LER), providing clients with bespoke solutions to ensure that their lubrication systems are well managed, efficient and cost effective.

WearCheck MD, Neil Robinson, outlines the concept of proactive maintenance, ‘By monitoring a component’s condition regularly over time, our scientific techniques provide reliable data which enables our diagnosticians to accurately predict whether and when that component will potentially fail.’

‘We identify a potential failure before it occurs and recommend a remedy. This way, catastrophic  failure is avoided, thereby enhancing machine availability and performance.

‘Unplanned component failure can be extremely costly and preferably avoided. With forewarning about potential component failure, our customers dodge unnecessary maintenance costs and maintain efficiency by upholding optimum production levels.
