The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) team celebrated the company’s first yr of business just lately (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch perform 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 half of the Group’s technique to expand its fluid know-how providers in Africa.
“The AFS team works intently with our sister firm BMG, to extend specialist providers, through the design, distribution, supply and support of a broad range of slurry-related valves, including 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 quality of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and decreasing the maintenance necessities of this range. This aim was achieved via exhausting work and the implementation of advanced design applied sciences, supplies and coatings and is a superb tribute to our team.
“Important milestones during the last yr embrace the establishment of a new rubber lining facility, with the set up of autoclaves that have capacities of up to 10 m in size. In the rubber industry, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber products, which aren’t but steady dimensionally, by elevating heat and stress. An autoclave is just like an enormous oven, with extremely high temperature and stress ratings, that make rubber components stable and solid in measurement and shape.
“Another development is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We at the moment are capable of manufacture all pinch sleeves, including excessive pressure and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the highest quality rubber merchandise, which are equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have also made a significant funding to increase our hydraulic urgent facility and thru our new design and course of, we are able to manufacture high-pressure diaphragms able to 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 range contains 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 products embrace 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 an advanced 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 via heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
“Our extremely expert group has a radical understanding of the processes where valves are put in and is in a position to specify the right valves required for every software. We also assist prospects in solving the issues of adverse installations and purposes.
“To guarantee optimum security, efficiency and the extended service life of each system, the number of the right industrial slurry valve is crucial. Valve choice is predicated on various elements, together with the scale and shape of particles, strain, temperatures and chemical content.”
This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited to be used in harsh circumstances in diverse industries, together with 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 purposes, which depend 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 implies prospects can declare BEE procurement recognition of one hundred twenty five % towards all purchases.
