Rheochem provides routine technical support to all customers. This is generally in the form of a standard Technical Report which differs depending on the application, but specific investigative work is carried out as required. Customers have access to 24/7 telephonic technical advice. Our reaction time to assist with problem solving in emergency situations is extremely rapid and we take an outcomes based approach in that the ultimate aim is for customers to achieve best possible results at a cost-efficient rate.
For new customers, plant surveys are carried out, followed by relevant analyses and product evaluations. This allows for application specific solutions to be offered. Equipment modifications or new equipment designs are proposed if necessary.
We provide Operator Training to existing customers, coupled with advice and training with regard to all aspects of handling hazardous or non-hazardous chemicals. This adds particular value in the case of gas chlorine, where users are obliged to meet stringent safety requirements.

SA Water treatment Legend honoured
The South African Water Sector has been hit by another blow with the death of Water Treatment stalwart, Charles Walters, on 7 April following a struggle with Cancer.
According to colleagues and customers at Rheochem, Charles was a legend. Barry Ludolf of Chemanzi, another longtime and well-known Water Treatment expert, recently had this to say “during the days of SA Cyanamid, Charles was the corner stone of our Sasol 2 and 3 business. He had an exceptional technical ability”.
The water treatment company Rheochem (Pty) Ltd was recently honoured by the Ntlambamasoka Junior Secondary School near Umzimkhulu for its contribution to the school through the donation of various items, including computers.
