Industry suitable Ref: MMPR 323


Benefits to the industry: Pamodzi Unique Engineering is renowned for its pump range and one of the mining industry’s work-horse is the DD 25 and DD 50 Wilflo double diaphragm range, which are locally designed and manufactured. The units have been successfully pumping sludge, slurry, water and sewage for more than 35 years and are easy to operate.

Sustainability: ‘Lube free’ units are a big feature, making it environmentally friendly, non-hazardous and suitable for general industry in numerous applications.

The locally manufactured generic spares perform equally well and in some instances, better than imported products, thus bringing about enormous savings to the market.

Compact set-up Ref: MMPR327


Benefits to the industry: With sampling valves and systems based on a plug valve construction sample taking of liquid media is performed pressure-free and the sample volume is always identical. The valves offer all the known and established advantages of the plug valve principle. These valves are free of cavities as a standard because a PTFE sleeve encircles the whole plug. So neither can left over media get trapped in cavities nor can it contaminate production.

Also media tending to crystallize does not affect the operating state. Because of the compact set-up a space-saving plant design is possible, even allowing for vertical or horizontal mounting due to its construction. Available through AZ Armaturen.

Clean machines Ref: MMPR 321


Benefits to the industry: Vert Energy has extended its range of electric power generation (EPG) components to meet growing demand from generator set builders and electro-mechanical power transmission industries.

Increasing energy requirements have placed power utilities under enormous pressure throughout the African continent, which is why companies are investing in alternative sources of electricity production.

The company has been appointed exclusive distributors in sub-Saharan Africa for leading power generation brands, complemented by genuine spare parts and accessories. EPG components include Leroy Somer alternators.

Backup service: A critical part of the company’s service is the availability throughout Africa of factory and OEM trained technicians who cope efficiently with any electro-mechanical breakdown situation or routine preventative maintenance procedures.

Sustainability: Leroy Somer, the largest producer of alternators for gensets globally, provides clean energy solutions. LS alternators, with ratings in excess of 20 000 kW, are suitable for all drive systems – whether for supplying electrical power on board a ship, electricity to deprived regions, or for preventing interruptions in the mains supply.

Cartridge expansion Ref: MMPR 319

Benefits to the industry: As part of the new joint venture into Africa, the Hytec Group has increased its distribution and support of the full range of Bosch Rexroth Oil Control cartridge valves throughout sub-Saharan Africa. This expanded support will enhance the group’s logistical, sales and support capabilities of the products, and includes a more competitive pricing structure for this series.

The valve range simplifies conventional compact hydraulic systems, and enhances hydraulic circuits where space and weight present fundamental application constraints. Bosch Rexroth cartridge valves are characterised by a very long service life: at an operating pressure of 350 bar, the cartridge solenoid valves are rated for a product life of 10 million cycles.

Dispenser series Ref: MMPR 318


Benefits to the industry: The TLMR series of automatic lubricant dispensers from global bearings and engineering solutions specialist, SKF, is ideally suited for difficult-to-reach or hazardous lubrication points on general machinery. The lubricant dispensers deliver maximum discharge pressure of up to 435psi (30 bar) and provide reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -25 degrees to +70 degrees Celsius.

Sustainability: The TLMR 101 lubricator is powered by standard-sized, Lithium AA batteries, while the TLMR 201 utilises 12- or 24- volt DC. Both models are available with 120mℓ or 380mℓ easily replaceable lubricant cartridges for applications requiring high lubricant consumption in heavy industries such as mining.

Coat of armour REF: MMPR 282

product282Benefits to the industry: Bluchem’s BluGuard anti-corrosion coatings will extend the lifetime and restore some capacity to corroded HVAC/R equipment.
This allows the savvy equipment owner to postpone replacement costs and reduce energy consumption over the lifetime of the unit.
BluGuard Coil Protection already has the highest performance ratings for HVAC/R coatings as per independent and standardised accelerated corrosion testing. The imbedded aluminium flake can help restore bonding between fin and tubes that have detached due to corrosion.
Sustainability: The energy portion of an HVAC system cost over lifetime is generally in the region of 50%, so improving efficiency and preventing further corrosion deterioration can realise huge savings. mmpr
