Tough valves for tough conditions

First Quarter 2022 News & events

Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS), specialist in the manufacture of slurry-related valves, has celebrated its first year of business. AFS was established by the Engineering Solutions Group (ESG) of Invicta Holdings as part of the group’s strategy to strengthen its position in the valves sector. The team works closely with sister company, BMG, to extend its services in Africa through the design, distribution,

supply and support of a broad range of slurry-related valves that comply with stringent quality and safety standards. AFS general manager, Donald Morrison, says that highlights over the last year include the establishment of a new rubber lining facility, with the installation of autoclaves that have capacities of up to 10 metres in length. Another milestone is a new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility. AFS has also enhanced the design and production of its slurry knife gate valve range.

Exciting news for AFS is that ESG has recently achieved recognition as a Level 2 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), which means customers can claim BEE procurement recognition of 125% against all purchases. Through BMG’s broad branch and distributor network, industry now has easy access to a comprehensive portfolio of locally manufactured and imported valves that are particularly well suited for use in harsh conditions in diverse industries, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, energy production and agrifood industries.
