Condition monitoring specialist company, WearCheck, has introduced their sister company, Set Point Water Laboratories into the fold, adding a brand new division to WearCheck’s scientific testing structure.
เกจวัดแรงดันแก๊สอาร์กอน is now integrated totally into WearCheck, and forms yet one more area of expertise together with WearCheck’s different services, which include scientific used oil evaluation, asset reliability care, transformer oil testing and lubricant-enabled reliability services.
Set Point Water Laboratories is ISO 17025:2017-accredited, and tests water from any supply – ranging from consuming water to manufacturing facility effluent, and every little thing in between – to find out the presence and levels of probably dangerous substances.
เกจวัดแรงดัน was established in Johannesburg in 1998 as a minerals laboratory, then known as Set Point Laboratories. The company launched water testing in 2013 and expanded with the launch of a Cape Town water laboratory in 2019, reaching accreditation of the Cape Town Laboratory in 2020, and thereafter focusing solely on water evaluation.
Thelma Horsfield, common supervisor of Set Point Water Labs, outlines their companies, ‘Our laboratory technicians choose the related checks for the water pattern relying on the needs of the customer. They determine what’s incorrect with the water and advise prospects on attainable penalties of using / discarding such water.

These strategies obtain the very best leads to chemical and microbial analysis of effluent/wastewater, consuming water, processed water, surface water and groundwater.
Industrial operations
‘In the case of industrial operations needing to dispose of wastewater into a river system, the sea or even simply down the drain, there are strict by-laws that have to be adhered to, outlining the “acceptable” levels of contaminants earlier than disposal, to forestall possible fines and even prosecution. Our water technicians decide the precise ranges of contaminants and advise on acceptable levels for protected discarding.
‘Many of our mining prospects function boreholes, utilizing the water within the mining process. We frequently monitor the water high quality from the boreholes to check whether or not contaminants from the mining course of have leached into the water provide.
‘As an instance – cyanide is commonly used in gold mining, the presence of this toxin should be continuously monitored. Uranium is commonly found within the ore with gold, and as uranium is radioactive, it could be very important monitor the levels and verify whether it has leached into the water supply. This is even a difficulty on disused mines and mine dumps – lots of our clients living close to these come to us to test the quality of their drinking water. Chromium-6, a carcinogenic factor, is a by-product from chrome mines, so you will want to know if people might be ingesting water with excessive levels of this.

Kidneys help compensate for the upper consumption of substances obtained from food and drinks that may in any other case build up within the physique. Dialyzing with pure water prevents the exposure of substances/toxins that can not be eradicated from the body. We are currently performing some water quality checks for a renal unit to make sure suitability for dialysis
‘Irrigation water high quality is a important aspect of greenhouse crop production. Water with excessive alkalinity can affect nutrients uptake by the crops and cause nutrient deficiency which compromises plant health.

In Cape Town, many boreholes have high salt content material, and, after testing the water, some customers have to dilute it with municipal water or put processes in place to remove most of the salts.
‘Through WearCheck, our water amenities provide analytical providers through an in depth network of operations in South Africa and internationally
‘And’, provides Horsfield, ‘as a result of the worldwide Covid pandemic, we added alcohol content material testing to our companies in addition to a newly launched logistics resolution to enable easy motion of water and sanitizer samples.’
