Flowrox wins a valve project in Namibia

Flowrox has won a project delivery to HUSAB Uranium mine in Namibia which is one of the biggest uranium mines in the world. Flowrox supplies a total of 83 of 550 mm hydraulically actuated pinch valves for heavy duty application (Fig.) in the tailings operation sector spread over 23 km area in the desert. The valves will be operated with unique actuator solution whenever required by means of two mobile gasoline powered hydraulic power packs.

In addition to pinch valves, Flowrox delivers a complete project package and has already conducted both theoretical and practical competence trainings to the technical staff members, ensuring a high level of plant operability. Flowrox also supplies the required valve spare parts, enabling mine staff to carry out any service and repairs without delays if and when required. The mine is also planning to purchase service exchange valves from Flowrox to ensure smooth serviceability even in the most demanding conditions in the desert.
