The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) team celebrated the company’s first 12 months of enterprise just lately (March 2022) by internet 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 a part of the Group’s strategy to expand its fluid technology services in Africa.
“The AFS group works intently with our sister firm BMG, to increase specialist providers, via the design, distribution, provide and assist of a broad vary of slurry-related valves, together with Klep diaphragm and wedge gate valves,” says Donald Morrison, General Manager, AFS. “Our specialists efficiently 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 reducing the upkeep necessities of this range. This aim was achieved through onerous work and the implementation of advanced design applied sciences, materials and coatings and is a great tribute to our team.
“Important milestones over the last 12 months include the establishment of a model new rubber lining facility, with the installation of autoclaves that have capacities of up to 10 m in length. In the rubber industry, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber merchandise, which are not but stable dimensionally, by elevating heat and pressure. An autoclave is just like a huge oven, with extraordinarily excessive temperature and stress ratings, that make rubber components secure and strong in size and form.
“Another advancement is a model new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility within our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are actually in a place to manufacture all pinch sleeves, including high pressure and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the best quality rubber products, which would possibly be equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have additionally made a big funding to extend our hydraulic pressing facility and thru our new design and process, we’re in a position to manufacture high-pressure diaphragms able to pressures in extra of 20 Bar.
“AFS has enhanced the design and manufacturing of its slurry knife gate valve vary, with dimensions ranging in diameter from a 50 mm unit to 1.5 m valves. The range contains 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 release 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 customer in Europe.
“Recently launched Dual rotary disc sleeve valves comprise a sophisticated rotating gate valve with sleeve design, developed specifically for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. เกจแรงดันลม patented design permits the valve to cycle by way of heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants can be found.
“Our extremely skilled team has a thorough understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is in a position to specify the right valves required for every utility. We also assist clients in solving the issues of inauspicious installations and functions.
“To ensure optimum security, efficiency and the extended service life of each system, the choice of the correct industrial slurry valve is critical. Valve selection is based on various components, including the dimensions and form of particles, strain, temperatures and chemical content.”
This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited for use in harsh circumstances in numerous industries, together with mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, vitality 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 protected operation of valves.
Another achievement for AFS is that ESG has 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 one hundred twenty five percent against all purchases.
