25 March Probe’s industrial starter repair kit meets customer needs March 25, 2019 General An important factor in providing the complete power package isn’t necessarily auto-electric - it’s you, our customer. You spoke and we listened in the compilation of our industrial starter motor repair kit. Probe took the suggestions that have been shared by our customers over time and together with our own expertise, we’ve gathered the most important equipment that is needed to provide the complete industrial starter motor repair kit. Repair kits are incredibly useful. When a financial outlay has been made previously to buy a good quality industrial-grade starter motor which is now out of warranty, it makes sense to look at repairing the unit rather than purchasing a brand new starter motor. Many times the fault could be down to a worn bearing, brush or bush. In instances such as this, repair is the way to go. To this end, Probe’s industrial starter motor repair kit has been developed for affordability and convenience. It includes everything necessary for a complete repair, including bushes, brushes and bearings. Using the industrial starter motor repair kit can restore the starter motor to proper performance, simply by fixing or replacing a specific piece. Probe’s industrial starter motor repair kits are available over the counter. Visit any one of our distributors throughout South Africa and ask for it by name. Probe’s industrial starter repair kit includes the following products: 2 - 4 bushes depending on the starter motor 1 – 2 sets of brushes (there are 4 per set) 2-3 bearings depending on the starter motor being repaired.

Probe’s Best Batteries for Boating With summer fast approaching, it’s time to throw off the covers and get your boat ready for the water. Rick Rovelli of Probe shares valuable advice on choosing the ideal battery to suit your boating needs. Established over 50 years ago, Probe is South Africa’s leading importer, wholesaler and distributor of batteries, starters and alternators. The right kind of battery for your boat depends very much on the purpose of the vessel. Similar to the requirements of a sports car compared to an off-road vehicle, different boats serve different purposes. To ensure that you’re getting the optimal battery to suit your needs it is important to recognise whether your boat has been designed for maximum speed over short distances, or whether it is more suited to longer sailing times. The size and capacity of your vessel should also be taken into account when selecting your battery. Providing the Right Battery to Meet Industry’s Solar Needs Effectively harnessing South Africa’s abundant solar energy in a business environment offers both environmental and cost-saving benefits. However, when introducing a solar solution, many companies find themselves facing unexpected challenges due to incorrect set-up and battery usage. The winning formula is to clearly understand the company’s precise energy needs upfront to implement a solution that correctly addresses requirements, both in terms of equipment set-up and choice of solar battery. This is according to Ingo Eichner from Probe, South Africa’s leading importer and distributor of batteries and solar solutions.

From industrial site (workhorses) to running roller coasters – the benefits of compressed air Compressed air is a vital utility used in countless ways to benefit everyday life. While those in manufacturing and industrial plants recognize the ‘plant workhorses’ importance as a source of process and instrument air, most people associate compressors with the small compressor in their garage used to inflate tires. They do not realize that compressed air is the energy of choice to power a great variety of applications. Probe’s Petrus Pretorius explains.
