Veolia Water Technologies South Africa supplied a package plant for the treatment of
water abstracted from two new boreholes at Cloetesville in Stellenbosch.

Unsuitable inlet supply can cause even the best designed pump to malfunction. As a result surprisingly serious problems can be caused by the simplest issues or go unnoticed by inexperienced machine operators. The most notable of which is pump cavitation.

Regular maintenance of your slurry pumps extends the wear life, helps avoid unplanned downtime and lowers the total ownership cost for end users. In the rigorous, demanding world of mining, slurry pumps are often run to breaking point before intervening. This may seem beneficial in the short-term, but in the long-term you could be doing your plant an injustice.

A large order of 24 ceramic impellers destined for pumping equipment in a copper mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo signals the value this technology brings through longer wear life and less plant downtime.

Several pump manufacturers have discovered that a combination of Vesconite Hilube bushings and wear rings can improve pump efficiencies even more than the introduction of either the bushings or the wear rings. 

Thermaspray has recently purchased a laser cladding machine capable of successfully refurbishing worn or mis-machined components that traditionally could not be refurbished, particularly in the pipe, pump and valve-industries. Laser cladding is also used for the protection of critical surfaces of new components in these same

Pipes, Pumps & Valves Africa attended a workshop hosted by Liquid Movers and presented by Andreas Vandré, Flowserve Regional Manager Educational Service EMA, where mechanical seals came under the spotlight.

Having a workforce that fully understands the nuances and complexities of critical operating systems and equipment is central to ensuring plant safety and to optimize operating performance. Pipes, Pumps & Valves Africa attended a workshop hosted by Liquid Movers and presented by Andreas Vandré, Flowserve Regional Manager Educational Service EMA, where education came under the spotlight.

Take the time and read the operating manual when purchasing a pump advises Andreas Vandré, Flowserve Regional Manager Educational Service EMA. More so, make sure the manual is available to staff in general and not just the pump operators. Also, make a point of investing in training and upskilling staff to understand the inner
workings of pumps. All of this will ultimately result in overall better performance.

Eight powerful pump questions a successful engineer must ask. You have purchased or are considering purchasing a pump. Perhaps you are experiencing problems with the pumps and systems in your process. Whatever the case may be, you will find it worthwhile to take a few moments and read our tips.

Record Bauma attracts more than 620,000 visitors from over 200 countries, Bauma 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment, generated the best results in the exhibition’s 65-year history

A wide range of robust fluid handling technology solutions was showcased by Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) at Bauma 2019. Of particular note this year is the company’s response to growth in the tunnel boring machinery (TBM) market. TBMs require the most reliable components available; each element must be proven to deliver under arduous conditions.

Japanese pump manufacturer Tsurumi, presented two new pumps, for the first time, at the Bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany. With its innovations KTZ415 and KTZ615, the Japanese company has outdone its series of professional drainage pumps for difficult applications.

At Bauma 2019 Xylem showcased its most resilient and innovative pumping solutions yet. Xylem also hosted a networking event to highlight women’s advancement in the construction and water industries.Xylem’s new and improved products on display at Bauma, enabled customers to dig deeper and build bigger. Xylem’s powerful portfolio of tough dewatering and flood protection pumps redefines toughness for the mining and construction industries.  

Dorot Valves used at a project in Ethiopia that will establish a large water-supply infrastructure from a dam on the Zariema River to one of the largest sugar-cane irrigation and sugar-production schemes. 484,000 tons of sugar and 41,654 cubic meters of ethanol a year will be reached at its maximum production capacity. The total land area for the project’s sugarcane cultivation is 50,000 hectares with a system supplied by Netafim and designed by BARAN Group, Israel.

ENERGYValves plays a pivotal role as one of three powerful brands within EMVAfrica and has earned a stellar reputation as a leading supplier of premium quality stainless steel special alloy, valves and supporting services. Born out of the consolidation of three associated companies, Energy Engineered Products, Multi Alloys and E-Metals Cape, EMVAfrica leveraged the strengths and three decades of experience of these founding companies.

There are many different types of valves, each one responding to a specific function in a process. Among these functions, two primary functions can be distinguished : on-off or control. Auxiliary functions such as draining and sampling, injecting and rinsing are all applications of “on-off” or control valves.

A delegation of local and international engineering professionals together with an unbeatable line-up of thought-leaders in Africa’s extractive-, construction-, energy-, food processing-, agriculture-, water & waste water- and power generation industries will be at the Pumps, Valves & Pipes Africa 2019 expo and conference in Johannesburg from 11-13 June to address latest technologies and proactive approaches to challenges in the operation and maintenance of pumps, valves and pipes.

The country’s leading mining, industrial and power generation expo takes place from the 10-12 September together with the recently launched A-OSH Expo Botswana. This will be an all-encompassing event showcasing the latest technologies, machinery, products and solutions related to mining, industrial and power generation, as well as all things associated with occupational health and safety.
