DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE MIXING/ AGITATORS AND PERSITALTIC HOSE PUMPS
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 application 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 specifically 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 saving over competitors including energy 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 40L/hr to 150,000 L/hr.

The internal working of each pump comprises of a rotor block with a solid rotating roller. The pumping action results from alternatively compressing and relaxing a specially designed high-pressure peristaltic hose between the pump housing compression roller 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 throughout 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 excellence metering accuracy and reduced 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 are popular solutions for many other applications which include:
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 minimize operational cost and maintenance downtime, every AFX pump is carefully selected, configured and equipped for specific application’s requirement by an experienced application specialist.
