Locally valves manufactured for tailings pipeline

June 2021 Valves, Actuators & Pump Control

Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS), launched recently by the Engineering Solutions Group (ESG), part of Invicta Holding Limited, designs and locally manufactures a comprehensive range of FPV and KLEP slurry-related valves that comply with stringent quality and safety standards.

The AFS manufacturing plant in Benoni is equipped with advanced equipment and is supported by specialists who offer dependable technical support to ensure the optimum safety, efficiency and extended service life of every system.

“The team at AFS is committed to improving the quality and pressure rating of our diaphragm valves, which will lengthen their service life and reduce maintenance requirements,” explains Donald Morrison, general manager, AFS. “Our objectives are being achieved through the latest developments in design technologies, advanced materials and durable coatings. Our highly-skilled team has a thorough understanding of the applications where our valves are installed and is therefore able to solve problems for customers.

“To ensure optimum safety, efficiency and the extended service life, the selection of the correct industrial slurry valve is critical. Valve selection is based on various factors, including the size and shape of particles, pressure, temperature and chemical content.”

The AFS valves range is particularly well-suited for use in harsh conditions in diverse sectors, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, energy production and agri-food industries.

This range comprises FPV non-return valves, FPV pinch valves, FPV wedge gate and FPV knife gate valves, as well as Klep diaphragm valves and related components.

AFS recently manufactured Klep 250 mm high pressure diaphragm valves for use on a tailings pipeline in South Africa. These valves were manufactured and tested to 24 bar in the open position and 18 bar in closed position.

The full range of AFS valves is distributed throughout southern Africa via BMG’s broad distribution network.
