The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) group celebrated the company’s first 12 months of business lately (March 2022) by internet hosting a two-day launch operate 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 increase its fluid technology services in Africa.
“The AFS staff works closely with our sister company BMG, to increase specialist providers, through the design, distribution, provide and assist of a broad vary of slurry-related valves, including Klep diaphragm and wedge gate valves,” says Donald Morrison, General Manager, AFS. “Our specialists efficiently achieved their first problem, which they set for themselves when the corporate was established – to improve the standard of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and decreasing the maintenance necessities of this range. This aim was achieved via onerous work and the implementation of superior design technologies, materials and coatings and is a great tribute to our group.
“Important milestones over the last year embrace 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 secure dimensionally, by elevating warmth and pressure. An autoclave is just like an enormous oven, with extremely excessive temperature and stress scores, that make rubber components stable and solid in dimension and shape.
“Another advancement is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are actually able to manufacture all pinch sleeves, together with high pressure and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the highest high quality rubber products, which are provided by Rema Tip Top. We have additionally made a big funding to increase our hydraulic urgent facility and thru our new design and course of, we’re capable of manufacture high-pressure diaphragms capable of pressures in extra 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. เกจวัดแรงดันออกซิเจนราคา includes flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG additionally distributes a domestically manufactured vary of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These merchandise embrace pinch valves, new water air release valves, Resilient Seated Gate (RSV) valves and rotary disc sleeve valves. AFS has recently manufactured and factory-tested some larger DN 700 hydraulically operated 20 Bar valves for a customer in Europe.
“Recently launched Dual rotary disc sleeve valves comprise a sophisticated rotating gate valve with sleeve design, developed particularly for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design allows the valve to cycle via heavy slurries without sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
“Our extremely expert staff has a thorough understanding of the processes the place valves are installed and is prepared to specify the right valves required for each utility. We additionally help prospects in solving the problems of inauspicious installations and functions.
“To ensure optimum security, efficiency and the extended service life of each system, the number of the correct industrial slurry valve is critical. Valve choice is predicated on various factors, together with the dimensions and shape of particles, pressure, temperatures and chemical content.”
This AFS portfolio is especially well-suited for use in harsh conditions in numerous 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 applications, 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 implies clients can declare BEE procurement recognition of one hundred twenty five percent against all purchases.
