Technicians hard at work inside one of WearCheck’s 14 laboratories. Mining, earthmoving, industrial, transport, shipping, aviation and electrical operations are among the many industries that benefit from WearCheck’s condition monitoring programmes.

One of WearCheck’s fundamental goals is to save money and time for customers by improving the availability, reliability and efficiency of their machinery through regular maintenance and tailored condition monitoring programmes, all done via a convenient “one-stop-monitoring-shop”.

WearCheck continuously embraces the latest approaches to proactive maintenance – from the traditional scientific analysis of used oil to the search for innovative condition monitoring techniques  to extend the life of components and to prevent premature failure, thereby boosting general plant health.  The underlying philosophy is that any good proactive maintenance programme boosts both plant availability as well as plant reliability.


Oil analysis is as important for maintenance engineering as blood testing is for medicine. It is the scientific analysis of all types of lubricants and transformer oils, coolants, greases and filters and is an established method for predictive and preventive maintenance. Preventive maintenance programmes are essential for optimising operational efficiency, reliability and performance of mechanical and electrical systems. Analyses are conducted at state-of-the-art, custom-built, automated laboratories with interpretation and reports compiled by highly-qualified diagnosticians.

Since the company’s inception more than 40 years ago in Durban, South Africa, WearCheck has enjoyed steady growth in line with the constantly-evolving condition monitoring industry and burgeoning demands for top quality, reliably world class service.

Today, the company processes in excess of 750 000 used oil samples each year and operates 14 laboratories in nine countries around Africa (RSA, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, DRC, Ghana, India and Dubai), with a presence in several other African countries.
