Process Expo Africa 2013 in Nasrec, from 21st to 23rd May, is an important event for IRISS in the UK. At this show IRISS, the manufacturer of the world’s only industrial grade infrared windows for thermal imaging inspection, will be supporting its newly appointed distributor at the public launch of its products to sub-Saharan industry.
The company appointed to represent IRISS sales interest in this region is R&C Instrumentation. Based in Johannesburg and Durban, with representation in other industrial centres across the territory, R&C Instrumentation has considerable experience in the process control sector. It is able to offer an extensive range of instrumentation, mostly related to infrared temperature measurement. Long term experience in this field enables the company to provide solutions for most applications.
The company is the sole importer of a wide range of high quality engineering products which are complemented by the addition of IRISS infrared windows. It is holding stock for the entire IRISS range including the CAP series. As with all IRISS products that are made from transmissive polymer, the CAP series brings unique advantages to South African industry.
Unlike crystal windows, which only perform best in controlled environments where humidity, UV radiation, chemical exposure, vibration, and high frequency noise are minimized or eliminated these products are shatterproof and can be any size or shape to suit the application. Resistant to most acids and oils, they importantly meet the standards for impact resistance and are approved to UL, CSA, Lloyds and ABS standards.
David Hinds heads the EMEA sales operation for IRISS that has its headquarters in Chelmsford, Essex. “IRISS is delighted to be working with R&C Instrumentation in Africa,” he commented. “My visit in May will be to provide in-depth product training as well as support the company at Process Expo Africa 2013. There is huge potential for our unique windows in this region and R&C Instrumentation is our ideal partner as it already serves the industries that will benefit most from our products.”
