The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) group celebrated the company’s first yr of enterprise lately (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch perform 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 expand its fluid know-how providers in Africa.
“The AFS group works closely with our sister firm BMG, to increase specialist providers, by way of the design, distribution, provide and help of a broad vary 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 maintenance necessities of this vary. This aim was achieved via exhausting work and the implementation of advanced design applied sciences, supplies and coatings and is a great tribute to our staff.
“Important milestones during the last 12 months embody the institution of a model new rubber lining facility, with the set up of autoclaves that have capacities of up to 10 m in length. In the rubber industry, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber products, which aren’t yet steady dimensionally, by elevating heat and stress. An autoclave is similar to a huge oven, with extremely high temperature and stress scores, that make rubber parts stable and strong in size and form.
“Another development is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We at the second are capable of manufacture all pinch sleeves, together with high stress and pneumatic sleeves. ตัววัดแรงดันน้ำมัน are manufactured from the highest high quality rubber merchandise, which are equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have also made a major investment to extend our hydraulic pressing facility and through our new design and process, we’re able to 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 range, with dimensions ranging in diameter from a 50 mm unit to 1.5 m valves. The range consists of flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG additionally distributes a domestically 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 just lately manufactured and factory-tested some larger DN seven hundred hydraulically operated 20 Bar valves for a buyer in Europe.
“Recently launched Dual rotary disc sleeve valves comprise a complicated 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 through heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
“Our highly skilled staff has a radical understanding of the processes the place valves are installed and is ready to specify the right valves required for each utility. We also assist clients in fixing the issues of adverse installations and purposes.
“To ensure optimum safety, effectivity and the prolonged service life of each system, the selection of the proper industrial slurry valve is important. Valve choice relies on varied factors, together with the dimensions and form of particles, stress, temperatures and chemical content material.”
This AFS portfolio is especially well-suited to be used in harsh conditions in diverse industries, together with mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, vitality production and agri-food industries. Important installations just lately, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping purposes, which rely 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 clients can declare BEE procurement recognition of one hundred twenty five % in opposition to all purchases.
