WearCheck at AUW 2019

Thank you to everyone who visited the WearCheck stand at African Utility Week (AUW) in Cape Town recently.

Many good conversations about our specialist condition monitoring services were had, with particular focus on the electrical/power generation sector.

Maintaining the health of components is so important for improved productivity of transformers, engines, gearboxes and electric motors. Regular assessment and used oil analysis help achieve optimum condition of components. Examination of the physical condition of components helps avoid unplanned failure, while transformer health is monitored through regular assessment of insulating fluid – these are the steps to reducing maintenance costs.

The massive expense of unplanned failure can be avoided with regularly-scheduled oil testing.  This reliable maintenance practice helps optimise the life of components. Other condition monitoring techniques include vibration analysis, balancing, alignment, motor circuit analysis and thermography.
