Design and Engineering

gear

AFX Holdings specializes in the design, engineering and manufacture of mechanical agitators and peristaltic hose pumps, particularly for those processes where a careful integration of process efficiency and mechanical reliability is required.

Stringent manufacturing and assembly standards allow us to produce large, overhung shafts, in excess of 20m, with negligible run out and high safety factors. The AMXagitator range of top entry mixers manufactured, ranges from units as small as 0.25kW to 750kW, for applications in the mining, petro chemical, pharmaceutical, waste and water management and Pulp & paper industries.

The use of fully machined bearing members and pedestals, the effective use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) during design, and the integrations of gearbox design parameters, ensure a reliable mechanical design.  Accordingly, we have a very high customer satisfaction rate and enjoy continual repeat business.

The AFXpumpseries hosts a range of robust peristaltic hose pumps, including one of the largest pumps of its type in the world. Our 150mm pump has a maximum flow rate of 147m3/hr, and can deliver pressures up to 10 Bar. These units are ideal for thickener underflow application. All pumps are hand fabricated with many material and finish options.

 

Problem Plants

image006

The AFX Holdings group has replaced many of our competitors’ agitators in a number of large plants.

Using its in-house design and engineering programs for in-depth plant analysis, AFX Holdings makes extensive use of FEA and thermo graphic imaging. A report on the process and mechanical problems are provided to the customers and advice given on the method of solving these problems.  These value-added services have benefited many of our customers at a number of different levels, most notably bottom-line savings.

As a team we can use pilot plants to test the accuracy of the technology being used for a specific application therefore making efficient and effective decisions based on factual information.

Manufacturing

Shafts and hubs

Shafts are manufactured to a stringent straightness tolerance of 1mm/metre of shaft length. Often 50% of this is achieved.

Engineering

Design

AFX produces all its manufacturing drawings in 3D to eliminate potential errors. Where large, or unusual, components are being designed, FEA is conducted. The analysis combines all the operating loads of the system, allowing the designer to see potential weaknesses before manufacture.
