Timrite Research and Development facility

Timrite’s state of the art research and development (R&D) facility was established in 1990 in
Westonaria, with the objective to solve complex mine support problems. All the equipment is
calibrated on a yearly basis by a company accredited by SANAS (South African National Accreditation
System).
The facility boasts amongst other things a 16 Tonne Dynamic Loading Drop Test; 5MN Elongate
Press; 10MN Quasi-Static Hydraulic Press; 400kN Cube Press; Net Drop Test; and a small-scale
Burn-test Furnace.
As Timrite, we pride ourselves on our continued contribution towards improving safety in the mining
industry through our research and development innovations.
