Specification Innovations (Pty) Ltd is a Tribology consulting company that focuses on providing bespoke solutions for all the fuel, filtration, and lubricant needs of mining and heavy industry. Specification Innovations offers unique, disruptive solutions to everyday lubricant, fuel and filtration problems. We have the technical knowledge and expertise to help all heavy industries to cut costs and improve their equipment efficiency through the implementation of our tailored products and solutions.
We have changed the way lubricants are viewed and developed the Industrial Standard Lubrication System (ISLS). The ISLS is a unique faceted codification system that enables easy purchase, comparison and use of lubricants throughout an entire operation and works to disrupt the oil industry by putting the knowledge and power back in the hands of the consumer. We have assisted various big mining houses including Sibanye-Stillwater, Anglo Platinum, and De Beers to improve their approach to lubricants and revolutionise their operations. The importance of lubricants has been ignored for so long that people forget to consider their impact. Paying attention to lubrication is the difference between eating a chocolate bar or eating a bowl of oats for breakfast. Only one option will keep you going all day. At the heart of this problem is the simple task of identification. Our system revolutionises the lubricant selection process to make it easier to make the right choice and understand why it’s the right choice. No other system goes as deep or reaches as wide as our does.
I am a young entrepreneur focused on improving the realm of heavy industry and mining. I am passionate about women empowerment and am looking to expand my capabilities and carve out a niche for myself within this space. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree from Rhodes University and am always focused on learning and personal growth. I am a fast learner adept at problem solving and work hard at everything I do. I strive to provide each client with the best experience possible.
From the humble beginnings of doing basic lubricant sample analysis for a colliery in Mpumalanga in the early 1990's, I have developed a passion for the correct usage of lubricants, extending drain intervals and prolonging asset health. As a consequence I have continued to develop my own knowledge in the field of lubricants and tribology, built the unique faceted codification system and built a meaningful library of information across brands classifying lubricants generically. This system has helped a number of mining houses to rationalise and consolidate their lubricant data to provide clear understanding of their operational requirements, whilst reducing costs significantly. I am a firm advocate of knowledge transfer and through our disruptive and unique system, we are able to transfer knowledge in this very specialised field, empowering the consumer to understand lubricants better and to extract more value from their equipment.
