The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) team celebrated the company’s first yr of enterprise just lately (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch function 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 staff works carefully with our sister firm BMG, to extend specialist providers, by way of the design, distribution, provide and assist of a broad range 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 corporate was established – to enhance the quality of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and decreasing the upkeep necessities of this range. This aim was achieved by way of hard work and the implementation of advanced design technologies, materials and coatings and is a great tribute to our team.
“Important milestones during the last 12 months embody the institution of a new rubber lining facility, with the set up of autoclaves that have capacities of as much as 10 m in size. In the rubber trade, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber merchandise, which are not but steady dimensionally, by elevating warmth and strain. An autoclave is just like a huge oven, with extremely high temperature and strain scores, that make rubber elements secure and solid in size and shape.
“Another development is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are actually in a position to manufacture all pinch sleeves, including excessive stress and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the best high quality rubber products, which are equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have also made a significant investment to increase our hydraulic pressing facility and through 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 vary, with dimensions ranging in diameter from a 50 mm unit to 1.5 m valves. The vary contains flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG also distributes a locally manufactured vary of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These merchandise embrace 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 an advanced rotating gate valve with sleeve design, developed particularly for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design allows the valve to cycle through heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants can be found.
“Our highly skilled staff has a thorough understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is ready to specify the proper valves required for each utility. We additionally help customers in solving the issues of inauspicious installations and applications.
“To ensure optimum safety, efficiency and the extended service life of every system, the choice of the right industrial slurry valve is critical. Valve selection relies on numerous elements, including the dimensions and form of particles, strain, temperatures and chemical content.”

เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำราคา is especially well-suited for use in harsh conditions in various industries, together with mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, energy production and agri-food industries. Important installations just lately, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping functions, which rely on plant availability and the secure 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 suggests clients can declare BEE procurement recognition of a hundred twenty five percent towards all purchases.
