Betterect supplies custom made steel fabrications to various industries and has extensive fabrication experience in respect of solid-liquid separation equipment, dewatering/filter plant equipment, structural steel, material handling equipment, chutes, hopers, pressure vessels, drums and storage, mixing holding and feed tanks for industrial, mining and petrochemical environments.

We offer detailing and shop drawings, steel fabrication, packing, loading and delivery/transportation services. Our products are generally fabricated from mild steel (which includes SABS 1431 350 WA, BS4360 GR 43A, SA516 GR70 and BS1501-151) and stainless steel (which includes 304, 304L, 316, 3161L, 316Ti, 430, 904L, 3CR12, 310, SAF2205, Alloy 28 and LDX 2101). However, should a client’s specification require any other material we are able to source such materials.

All work is carried out under strict quality assurance and control in accordance with SABS 0157 (ISO 9001:2000). Betterect has acquired the services of a certified auditor to assist us in the compiling of our quality system. Our senior management is committed to strictly complying with these requirements. An outside authorised inspection authority is used for non-destructive testing, welding procedures, procedure qualification records and welders qualifications. Other major international codes adhered to by Betterect include Markblatt, ASME VIII and BS 5500. Betterect has also worked in conjunction with various third party inspection authorities such as TUV Rheinland, TUV Bavaria, Michael Brett and Partners, Unit Inspection, Sasol One Inspection, Johannesburg Municipality, Rand Water Board, Lloyds and Moody International.
