Flowrox wins pinch valve project

Flowrox,one of the heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturing and services company has been awarded a significant project for the Husab Uranium Mine, the second largest uranium mine in the world in Namibia, South Africa. The company has been contracted to deliver a total of 83 of 550mm hydraulically-actuated pinch valves to the project in the tailings operation sector spread over a 23km area in the desert.

Flowrox’s Pinch Valves are designed for heavy duty applications in flow control industries where the corrosive and abrasive nature of slurries, powders or other coarse substances are continuously testing the limits of human engineering.The pinch valves used at the Husab Uranium Mine will be operated with unique actuator solution, whenever required, by means of two mobile gasoline-powered hydraulic power packs—and given the demanding conditions of a uranium mine, Flowrox is capable of tailoring its actuators, valve body construction and sleeve material to its process conditions.

“Husab only partners with the premium product suppliers in this market sector and Flowrox was chosen due to our quality performance and technology. The relationship with the customer is excellent and there will be more project collaboration in the near future,” stated Mr. Blignaut, Managing Director for Flowrox Pty Ltd in South Africa.
