Mechanical Testing


What is Mechanical Testing?

Mechanical testing is the measurement, investigation and monitoring of an industrial plant for defects, undesirable operation or deteriorating health. Various testing technologies are implemented to determine the plant's condition or establish the cause of the fault or undesirable operation. Verico's mechanical testing team undertake routine monitoring, specialised online system development and detailed investigation and testing.

Our Approach

We apply our engineering expertise to develop innovative methodologies and solutions to achieve asset integrity and performance assurance. The Verico mechanical team analyse the problem at hand and apply our knowledge and experience to develop a solution to meet our customer's requirements.

Verico’s online condition monitoring and reporting system is used for automated detection and reporting of faults in low-speed gearless and gear drives such as SAG (semi-autogenous grinding) mills and HPGR (high pressure grinding rolls) drives.

It combines traditional condition monitoring reporting with a continuous, automated online monitoring system that provides timely alerts and fault analysis. The reporting system is highly customisable, including options for both cloud-based and localised remote monitoring systems.



Typical Benefits of Engaging Verico for Mechanical Testing

Verico have a proven history of finding solutions to customer plant problems and malfunctions, either detecting plant issues early through condition-based maintenance or getting their equipment back into production as soon as possible to minimise downtime.
