The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) team celebrated the company’s first 12 months of enterprise recently (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch function 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 a part of the Group’s strategy to broaden its fluid technology providers in Africa.
“The AFS group works closely with our sister firm BMG, to extend specialist services, by way of 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 challenge, which they set for themselves when the corporate was established – to enhance the quality of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and decreasing the upkeep necessities of this vary. This aim was achieved via onerous work and the implementation of superior design applied sciences, materials and coatings and is a superb tribute to our staff.
“Important milestones over the last year embrace the establishment of a model new rubber lining facility, with the installation of autoclaves that have capacities of as a lot as 10 m in length. In the rubber industry, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber products, which are not yet steady dimensionally, by elevating warmth and stress. An autoclave is just like an enormous oven, with extremely excessive temperature and stress scores, that make rubber parts secure and strong in measurement and shape.
“Another development is a model new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We at the moment are in a place to manufacture all pinch sleeves, together with excessive strain and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the best quality rubber merchandise, which may be supplied by Rema Tip Top. We have also made a big funding to increase our hydraulic pressing facility and through our new design and process, we’re able to 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 vary, 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 include 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 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 specifically for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design allows the valve to cycle by way of heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
เกจวัดแรงดันภาษาอังกฤษ has an intensive understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is prepared to specify the correct valves required for every software. We additionally help prospects in solving the issues of adverse installations and applications.
“To ensure optimum safety, efficiency and the extended service life of every system, the number of the correct industrial slurry valve is critical. Valve selection is predicated on numerous elements, together with the dimensions and form of particles, strain, temperatures and chemical content.”
This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited to be used in harsh situations in diverse industries, together with mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, power manufacturing and agri-food industries. Important installations just lately, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping purposes, which depend on plant availability and the safe operation of valves.
Another achievement for AFS is that ESG has recently achieved recognition as a Level 2 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), which suggests clients can declare BEE procurement recognition of 125 percent against all purchases.
