Afrivalve, a division of eDART Slurry Valves, now offers a simple patented design of the Red Roc Hi-Lift pinch valve allows for inline changing of the rubber sleeve, without the use of lifting equipment and has been granted a patent number 2017/02223.
This unique and innovative feature offers a drastic reduction in downtime and manpower to replace worn sleeves, eliminates the need for lifting and rigging equipment in remote areas as well as removing the pipework and re-alignment requirement
The Red Roc Pinch valves, which are manufactured at eDART Slurry Valve’s facilities in Jet Park, Gauteng, range in sizes from DN150-DN600 with larger sizes on request, with pressures ranging from PN10 to PN40 depending on the size.
Afrivalve’s Group Marketing Manager, Gregor Hopton said “The fact that we are a 100% local manufacturer allows us to tailor our valves to exact customer requirements and we can offer the Red Roc Hi-Lift Pinch Valve in higher pressures and sizes than the DN600 to meet specific requirements. Although predominantly used in the mining industry, Red Roc Pinch Valves are suited for use in various other industrial applications such as in the power generation, sewage and effluent and fertilizer industries”.
This unique valve complements the range of slurry isolation knife gate valves and various slurry control valves that eDART manufacture locally in Jet Park, Gauteng.
