Pumps and Hoses
AFX PUMP SERIES
Our extensive range of peristaltic hose pumps includes one of the largest pumps of this type in the world. Our 150mm pump has a maximum flow rate of 147m³/hr and can deliver pressures up to 16 Bar. These units are ideal for thickener underflow applications.
AFX also supply hoses for many makes of peristaltic pumps and has the expertise to advise on all piping and system layouts.
AFX PUMP SERIES
The AFX Peristaltic pump range has been designed to be a robust pumping solution for high viscosity, high solids (abrasive), high density slurries and liquids for a wide array of applications and industries including mining, chemical, food and beverage, pulp and paper, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, water treatment and many more. Building on a proven concept our latest development is the AFX PUMP SERIES which was specially adapted to further improve the product’s high performance, durability and low maintenance.
All AFX’s products are designed to deliver exceptional performance, but what sets this pump apart from its competitors is its cost-effectiveness and reliable operation. AFX can demonstrate measurable savings when using the AFX PUMP over that of its competitors, including energy savings and maintenance downtime savings of up to 50% compared to traditional peristaltic hose pumps. The pumps are self-priming, fully reversible, highly durable, easy to maintain, can be run dry for extended periods without damage, and offer flow rates from 40 l/hr to 150 000 l/hr.
The internal workings of each pump comprise of a rotor block with solid rotating rollers. The pumping action results from alternately compressing and relaxing a specially designed high-pressure peristaltic hose between the pump housing and the pump compression rollers to create an airtight pocket. The fluid is pushed along the hose towards the discharge by the compression rollers, creating a positive displacement. The reopening hose behind the roller draws more fluid into the pump through the suction. Due to this method of operation where there is 100% hose closure at all time, the pump is on its own a non-return mechanism. This ensures excellent metering accuracy and reduces the need for additional equipment downstream.
The AFX PUMP SERIES are commonly used in applications where the product to be pumped has a high solids content and/ or viscosity, such as thickener underflow, slurry transfer and chemical transfer or dosing applications; but are popular solutions for many other applications which include:
|Chemical:||Corrosive acids and shear sensitive media|
|Water and waste treatment:||Sludge pumping|
|Fishing industry:||Bulk fish transfer and effluent handling|
|Paint and pigment:||Dispersion mill feed and latex transfer|
|Pulp and paper:||Dyes, sizing agents, and titanium dioxide dosing|
|Mining:||Tailing slurries transfer, sludge transfer|
|Mineral processing:||Carbon and ceramic media transfer|
|Mineral Recovery:||Filter Press Feed, electro winning Feed|
|Ceramics:||Clay slip and glaze pumping|
|Construction:||Cements, coatings, spray concrete and aggregate pumping|
|Food and Beverage:||Yeast cropping, additives and effluent pumping reagents transfer and dosing, sump discharge|
|Energy efficiency:||Reductions in friction thanks to specially developed roller technology greatly reduces power consumption and mechanical wear.|
|Built for difficult applications:||AFX pumps can handle high abrasive slurries, corrosive material, high solids applications, gaseous liquids and very dense liquids and slurries with remarkable ease|
|Sensitive handling:||AFX pumps are Ideal for shear sensitive products|
|Chemically compatible:||Every AFX pump is supplied with internals to be chemically compatible with your product|
|Fool proof:||AFX series pumps can run dry indefinitely, without damage|
|Fully reversible:||Your AFX pump can easily change direction to flush or reverse transfer when necessary.|
|Minimal maintenance:||The heavy duty, high pressure hose is the only wearing item in your AFX pump.|
|Flexible to your needs:||Pump casings and internal components are available in a choice of materials including stainless steel|
|Suctions power:||The AFX pump is self-priming pump and has a suction lift capability of up to 9 metres|
|Accuracy:||AFX pumps have a fixed flow per revolution resulting in a highly accurate flow rate for dosage sensitive applications|
Boasting eleven AFX peristaltic pump models with flow rates between 40 l/hr to 150 000 l/hr across the range the AFX PUMP SERIES have become industry favourites across many countries. We attach the same care and dedication not only to pump and hose design but also to the selection and application of our pumps. To ensure optimum performance and product life, as well as to minimise operational cost and maintenance downtime, every AFX pump is carefully selected, configured and equipped for a specific application’s requirements by an experienced application specialist.
