Our plastic injection moulding plant is situated in Meadowdale, Johannesburg
and converts a wide range of thermoplastic resins, from general purpose
types, such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene and A.B.S., to engineering
types, such as POM, PA and Polycarbonate.
Proprietary Products :
The Ezee Flow™ brand was borne out of Plastinternational's longstanding
investment with Elster Kent water metering company. Our R & D developed
the well known 1/2 ball valve over 9 years ago.
This valve has been extensively used by Elster Kent in their E23 water
meter management system. To date over a million of these valves are in
use in the field.
We are currently broadening our already successful Ezee Flow™ range of ball valves / shut off valves, by adding superior quality fittings and othe r components.
As for the original ball valve / shut off valve, according to Ambrosi, close on one million of them are in use in the local market, predominantly in water metering applications, and a number are in use in the international market – and sales are still going strong.
The ball valve / shut off valve range is available in sizes from ¼ inch to 1inch and offer specific benefits when compared with brass valves. These benefits include:
- Resistance to micro-organisms because the PP housing material cannot be penetrated by micro-organisms.
- Physiological compatibility. Industrial and pharmaceutical laboratories have tested the PP housing material in acute and chronic animal feed trials, and after two years, no damage attributable to the plastic could be detected in the animal organs.
-Compliance with food legislation, including the specifications of the USA’s Food & Drug Administration, as well as Germany’s BGA Vll and BGA lX.
The mechanical properties of the ball valves / shut off valves are 20 bar continuous pressure with cold water, and 10 bar continuous pressure at 60oC with hot water. Plastinternational’s ball valve range has been further extended and now also includes a limited range of fittings for fusion welding applications.
