The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) group celebrated the company’s first year of business lately (March 2022) by internet 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 broaden its fluid technology companies in Africa.
“The AFS staff works carefully with our sister company BMG, to extend specialist providers, by way of the design, distribution, provide and help of a broad vary 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 company was established – to enhance the standard of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and reducing the maintenance requirements of this range. This goal was achieved via exhausting work and the implementation of advanced design applied sciences, materials and coatings and is a good tribute to our group.
“Important milestones over the past yr embody the establishment of a new rubber lining facility, with the installation of autoclaves which have capacities of as a lot as 10 m in length. In the rubber business, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber merchandise, which are not but steady dimensionally, by elevating heat and pressure. An autoclave is similar to an enormous oven, with extremely high temperature and strain ratings, that make rubber components secure and stable in measurement and form.
“Another development is a brand 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, together with excessive pressure and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the very best high quality rubber merchandise, that are equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have additionally made a major funding to increase our hydraulic pressing facility and thru our new design and process, we are capable of manufacture high-pressure diaphragms capable of pressures in extra 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 vary consists of flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG additionally distributes a locally manufactured vary 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 larger 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 specifically for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design allows the valve to cycle via heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants can be found.
“Our extremely expert group has a thorough understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is prepared to specify the proper valves required for each utility. We also assist prospects in fixing the problems of inauspicious installations and functions.
“To ensure optimum security, efficiency and the prolonged service life of each system, the number of the right industrial slurry valve is crucial. Valve choice is based on numerous elements, including the dimensions and form of particles, stress, temperatures and chemical content.”
This AFS portfolio is especially well-suited for use in harsh conditions in numerous industries, together with mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, vitality manufacturing and agri-food industries. Important installations just lately, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping applications, which rely on plant availability and the safe operation of valves.
เกจวัดแรงดันน้ําไทวัสดุ for AFS is that ESG has recently achieved recognition as a Level 2 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), which implies prospects can declare BEE procurement recognition of a hundred twenty five percent against all purchases.
