WearCheck at Mining Indaba 2024

Specialist condition monitoring company, WearCheck, is showcasing its range of mining-related predictive maintenance techniques, products and services at the 2024 Investing in Africa Mining Indaba in Cape Town’s ICC from 5-8 February 2024.

Technical manager, Steven Lumley, and a team of technical experts from WearCheck will be on hand to demonstrate the company’s world-class technology-based solutions.

Says Lumley, ‘We relish the opportunity to introduce our unique condition monitoring services to potential new customers, and also to present our newest techniques to existing clients. We always enjoy catching up with our ‘family’ of the many familiar players in the African mining arena with whom we have been interacting as a company for the past 47 years.’

WearCheck’s core service is the scientific analysis of used oil, fuel and other fluids. This entails analysing fluid samples for trace particles, which indicate which component is suffering unusual wear patterns. The test results are assessed by a team of specialised diagnosticians, who advise on a course of remedial action, if it is required.

Additional predictive maintenance techniques offered – which are selected based on the machinery and components being monitored – include asset reliability care (ARC) services, transformer chemistry services and advanced field services (AFS) such as non-destructive testing (NDT), technical compliance (TC) 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.

Roger Henwood, WearCheck technician, conducts rope testing analysis.

WearCheck’s expansive service offering also includes water analysis through Set Point Laboratories, which analyses the quality of wastewater, groundwater and surface water in areas surrounding mining and exploration sites.

Moses Lelaka, technical water laboratory manager for WearCheck, prepares to process water samples for analysis.

The water division caters to a variety of needs. For example, ensuring that effluent/wastewater is compliant and safe for disposal is essential. Compliance with municipal by-laws and environmental safety standards allows for the safe disposal of wastewater into streams and rivers.

Additionally, ground and surface water quality analysis allow for determination of water safety for use on equipment, drinking, washing and other purposes.

WearCheck can be found at stand J19 at the mining indaba.
