SA Gauge celebrates 22 years

July 2014 News

SA Gauge has recently celebrated its 22nd year of designing and manufacturing pressure and temperature gauges for the industry. It also manufactures a range of related accessories such as diaphragm seals and pressure testing kits, as well as other related equipment for the accurate measurement of pressure and temperature in the industrial, mining, chemical, hygienic and process industries. Its range of heavy duty pressure gauges and inert gas filled dial thermometers carry a comprehensive two year guarantee, unique in the South African industry, according to Chris du Plessis, the managing director.

SA Gauge boasts extensive in-house manufacturing processes through conventional as well as computer controlled machining facilities; enable shorter lead times – even with non-standard items. The high standards and on time availability of components demanded by the industry are therefore controlled in-house, not by third-party contractors. SA Gauge instruments are handmade and individually calibrated, en­suring ­reliability and accuracy.

In-house calibration service is offered for both the SA Gauge brand as well as other brands of pressure and temperature gauges at a very short turnaround time. On site calibration can be done on request.

The SA Gauge Calibration Laboratory offers a two-day turnaround time for pressure calibration certificates to SANAS ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standards.

The SA Gauge head office, factory and SANAS Laboratory is based in Springfield Park, Durban, and a finishing plant with calibration facility is based in Croyden, Kempton Park. Both the Durban branch and the Kempton Park branch properties are under the ownership of SA Gauge.

SA Gauge currently employs 45 full-time members of staff, offers no public and/or personal shareholding and is a fully self-incorporated entity.
