The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) group celebrated the company’s first year of enterprise recently (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch operate 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 know-how providers in Africa.
“The AFS staff works closely with our sister company BMG, to increase specialist companies, by way of the design, distribution, provide and support of a broad range of slurry-related valves, together with Klep diaphragm and wedge gate valves,” says Donald Morrison, General Manager, AFS. “ เกจวัดแรงดันเครื่องกรองน้ำ achieved their first challenge, which they set for themselves when the corporate was established – to enhance the quality of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and lowering the upkeep necessities of this vary. This objective was achieved through exhausting work and the implementation of advanced design technologies, supplies and coatings and is a good tribute to our group.
“Important milestones during the last yr embody the establishment of a brand new rubber lining facility, with the set up of autoclaves which have capacities of up to 10 m in size. In the rubber business, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber products, which are not but stable dimensionally, by elevating warmth and pressure. An autoclave is much like an enormous oven, with extraordinarily excessive temperature and pressure ratings, that make rubber parts secure and solid in measurement and shape.
“Another development is a brand new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are now able to manufacture all pinch sleeves, together with high strain and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the highest high quality rubber products, which are provided by Rema Tip Top. We have also made a significant funding to extend our hydraulic urgent facility and thru our new design and course of, we’re in a position to 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 range, 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 additionally distributes a domestically manufactured vary of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These products embrace pinch valves, new water air release 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 a complicated 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.
“Our extremely expert team has a radical understanding of the processes where valves are installed and is ready to specify the proper valves required for every software. We also help prospects in solving the issues of inauspicious installations and functions.
“To guarantee optimum security, effectivity and the extended service life of each system, the number of the correct industrial slurry valve is crucial. Valve choice relies on various factors, including the scale and form of particles, pressure, temperatures and chemical content material.”
This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited for use in harsh conditions in numerous industries, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, energy production 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 protected 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 declare BEE procurement recognition of a hundred twenty five percent against all purchases.
