WearCheck takes over transformer services company

WearCheck recently bought out Transformer Chemistry Services (TCS), adding an already-established transformer analysis and maintenance division to the company’s condition monitoring portfolio.

Coupled with our Africa-wide network, the expertise of TCS and a general growth in the number of transformers across the continent, WearCheck is now poised to provide large-scale and widespread comprehensive transformer reliability services.

The primary function of the newly-formed transformer division is the promotion of transformer health through the regular assessment of insulating fluid and diagnosis of the results.

We now offer the transformer tests done by TCS to our existing transformer oil analysis programme, increasing the number of available fluid and non-fluid tests, such as Insulation Paper Quality Testing.

TCS was established in Westville, Durban in 1992 by Ian Gray, who has run the company for the past 25 years.

Offering the full spectrum of transformer reliability solutions by one condition monitoring company – this is one of the key benefits of the merger of TCS into WearCheck. So says WearCheck MD Neil Robinson, who constantly strives to provide customers with value-for-money services that reliably boost plant availability.

Says Robinson, ‘The transition of TCS into WearCheck is already underway and is an extremely smooth process, particularly since the two companies share an absolute dedication to the integrity of data and a parallel commitment to customer service excellence.

‘From WearCheck’s side, we extend a very warm welcome to all the current TCS customers, and we look forward to taking new transformer clients on board to experience our new one-stop transformer maintenance shop.’
