The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) staff celebrated the company’s first 12 months of enterprise lately (March 2022) by internet hosting a two-day launch function at its manufacturing plant in Benoni, Gauteng.
AFS, which specialises in the design and manufacture of slurry-related valves, was established by the Engineering Solutions Group (ESG) of Invicta Holdings Limited, as part of the Group’s strategy to increase its fluid technology services in Africa.
“The AFS group works carefully with our sister company BMG, to extend specialist services, through the design, distribution, provide and assist of a broad range of slurry-related valves, together with Klep diaphragm and wedge gate valves,” says Donald Morrison, General Manager, AFS. “Our specialists successfully achieved their first problem, which they set for themselves when the company was established – to enhance the standard of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and reducing the upkeep requirements of this range. This goal was achieved by way of hard work and the implementation of superior design technologies, materials and coatings and is a great tribute to our group.
“Important milestones over the past year embody the institution of a new rubber lining facility, with the set up of autoclaves which have capacities of up to 10 m in length. In the rubber business, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber merchandise, which are not yet stable dimensionally, by elevating warmth and pressure. An autoclave is similar to an enormous oven, with extremely high temperature and pressure ratings, that make rubber components secure and solid in measurement and shape.
“Another advancement is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility within our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are now capable of manufacture all pinch sleeves, including excessive strain and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the very best quality rubber merchandise, that are equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have also made a significant funding to increase our hydraulic urgent facility and through our new design and course of, we are capable of manufacture high-pressure diaphragms able to pressures in excess of 20 Bar.
“AFS has enhanced the design and manufacturing of its slurry knife gate valve vary, with dimensions ranging in diameter from a 50 mm unit to 1.5 m valves. The vary contains flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG additionally distributes a regionally manufactured range of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These merchandise embody pinch valves, new water air launch valves, Resilient Seated Gate (RSV) valves and rotary disc sleeve valves. AFS has lately manufactured and factory-tested some bigger DN seven-hundred hydraulically operated 20 Bar valves for a customer in Europe.
“Recently launched Dual rotary disc sleeve valves comprise an advanced rotating gate valve with sleeve design, developed particularly for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design permits the valve to cycle through heavy slurries without sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
เกจวัดแรงดันเครื่องกรองน้ำ has a radical understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is ready to specify the correct valves required for each utility. We also help prospects in fixing the issues of inauspicious installations and applications.
“To ensure optimum security, effectivity and the prolonged service life of every system, the choice of the correct industrial slurry valve is crucial. Valve choice is predicated on various components, including the scale and shape of particles, pressure, temperatures and chemical content.”
This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited to be used in harsh situations in diverse industries, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, energy production and agri-food industries. Important installations lately, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping applications, which rely on plant availability and the protected operation of valves.
Another achievement for AFS is that ESG has lately achieved recognition as a Level 2 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), which implies prospects can claim BEE procurement recognition of one hundred twenty five % towards all purchases.
