Flowrox to deliver pinch valves to Namibian uranium mine

Flowrox, a Finnish valves and pumps manufacturer, has recently won a project delivery to a HUSAB Uranium mine in Namibia, which is one of the biggest uranium mines in the world.

Flowrox supplies a total of 83 of 550mm hydraulically actuated pinch valves for heavy duty applications in the tailings operation sector spread over a 23km area in the desert.

The valves will be operated with a unique actuator solution whenever required by means of two mobile petrol-powered hydraulic power packs.

In addition to the pinch valves, Flowrox will deliver a complete project package and has conducted both theoretical and practical competence trainings to the technical staff members, ensuring a high level of plant operability.

The company 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 serviceability even in the most demanding conditions in the desert.
