About Us

Glasschem cc was established in 1992 by scientific glassblower Sarel Rautenbach (B.Sc. Univ. Stelllenbosch), specialising in developing analytical instruments for the South African wine industry.

This led to the formulation of a programme in which local expertise in electronics, and metal working were joined to glassworking to develop and build instruments that are sold not only in South Africa but also in Australia, Europe, Canada, Africa, India, Japan and the United States.

  • Waterstills

  • Carbon Dioxide Testers
