The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) team celebrated the company’s first year of enterprise lately (March 2022) by internet hosting a two-day launch function at its manufacturing plant in Benoni, Gauteng.
AFS, which specialises within 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 technique to expand its fluid expertise companies in Africa.
“The AFS team works intently with our sister company BMG, to extend specialist services, through the design, distribution, supply and help of a broad range of slurry-related valves, including Klep diaphragm and wedge gate valves,” says Donald Morrison, General Manager, AFS. “Our specialists successfully achieved their first challenge, which they set for themselves when the corporate was established – to improve the standard of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and lowering the upkeep requirements of this vary. This aim was achieved by way of onerous work and the implementation of superior design applied sciences, materials and coatings and is a great tribute to our staff.
“Important milestones over the past yr embody the institution of a brand new rubber lining facility, with the installation of autoclaves which have capacities of up to 10 m in length. In the rubber trade, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber merchandise, which are not but stable dimensionally, by elevating heat and strain. An autoclave is just like a huge oven, with extraordinarily excessive temperature and stress rankings, that make rubber elements secure and stable in dimension and form.
“Another development is a model new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility within our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We at the moment are capable of manufacture all pinch sleeves, including high strain and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the best quality rubber merchandise, which are provided by Rema Tip Top. We have additionally made a big investment to increase our hydraulic urgent facility and through our new design and process, we’re capable of manufacture high-pressure diaphragms capable of pressures in excess of 20 Bar.
“AFS has enhanced the design and production of its slurry knife gate valve vary, with dimensions ranging in diameter from a 50 mm unit to 1.5 m valves. The vary includes flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG also distributes a domestically manufactured range of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These products 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 700 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 specifically for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design permits the valve to cycle via heavy slurries without sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants can be found.
“Our extremely skilled staff has an intensive understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is in a position to specify the proper valves required for every utility. We also help clients in solving the problems of difficult installations and functions.
“To ensure เครื่องมือวัดความดัน , effectivity and the prolonged service life of each system, the number of the right industrial slurry valve is crucial. Valve choice is predicated on numerous elements, together with the size and form of particles, pressure, temperatures and chemical content material.”
This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited to be used in harsh circumstances in various industries, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, power manufacturing and agri-food industries. Important installations recently, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping functions, which depend on plant availability and the secure operation of valves.
Another achievement for AFS is that ESG has just lately achieved recognition as a Level 2 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), which means prospects can claim BEE procurement recognition of 125 % towards all purchases.
