Note:

Is it correct to use the word EQUIPMENTS (plural) in your sentence?

 

Answer:
According to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, EQUIPMENT is uncountable. Hence, it's incorrect to use EQUIPMENTS. Rather, you should use "Pieces of Equipment".

Bear in mind that you will find a great number of online articles using EQUIPMENTS. Mostly, these articles are related to engineering subjects.

For academic writing, especially for IELTS exams, it's best to use EQUIPMENT as an uncountable noun.
