The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) staff celebrated the company’s first year of business just lately (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch operate 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 strategy to expand its fluid technology companies in Africa.
“The AFS team works intently with our sister firm BMG, to extend specialist services, by way of the design, distribution, provide and help 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 challenge, which they set for themselves when the corporate was established – to improve the standard of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and reducing the maintenance necessities of this range. This goal was achieved through hard work and the implementation of superior design applied sciences, supplies and coatings and is a good tribute to our group.
“Important milestones over the past yr embrace the establishment 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 business, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber products, which are not yet steady dimensionally, by elevating warmth and pressure. An autoclave is much like an enormous oven, with extraordinarily excessive temperature and pressure ratings, that make rubber parts stable and stable in measurement and form.
“Another advancement is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility inside our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are actually in a place to manufacture all pinch sleeves, together with high strain and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the best quality rubber products, which are equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have additionally made a significant funding to increase our hydraulic pressing facility and thru our new design and process, we are in a place 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 vary includes flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG also distributes a domestically manufactured vary of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These merchandise embody pinch valves, new water air release valves, Resilient Seated Gate (RSV) valves and rotary disc sleeve valves. AFS has recently manufactured and factory-tested some bigger 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 allows the valve to cycle through heavy slurries without sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
“Our highly expert team has a radical understanding of the processes the place valves are put in and is prepared to specify the correct valves required for every application. We also assist customers in solving the issues of difficult installations and functions.
“To ensure เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำราคา , efficiency and the extended service life of every system, the choice of the proper industrial slurry valve is critical. Valve choice is based on varied elements, together with the scale and shape of particles, pressure, temperatures and chemical content material.”

This AFS portfolio is particularly well-suited to be used in harsh circumstances in diverse industries, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, power manufacturing and agri-food industries. Important installations recently, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping functions, which depend on plant availability and the protected 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 implies customers can claim BEE procurement recognition of one hundred twenty five % against all purchases.
