Quality you can trust at this year’s Afrox Nampo stand

The Afrox team will be out in full force at the Nampo 2014 Harvest Day with a broad range of products and services on display that underpin this year’s theme of “Quality you can trust”.

“The Afrox Quality Management System ensures that all products are supplied to international, national and company standards,” says Mark Perfett, Afrox Events Manager. “The combination of these quality products, first-class customer service, efficient systems and an underlying commitment to safety, ensure a superior customer experience.”

A new addition to the stand this year is the locally manufactured SMOOTHFLO™ regulator, hailed as the most technologically advanced and engineered gas pressure regulator ever to hit the global industrial market. SMOOTHFLO™ is one of the safest gas regulators in its class, offering a multi-stage-like performance from a single-stage regulator.

Also recently launched to the South African industry and on show at Nampo will be Afrox’s GoldFlo bronze-coated GMAW wire for high integrity work. Its improved chemical composition levels ensures improved weld metal de-oxidisation and an excellent choice for welding metals with a medium to high presence of mill scale or rust.

Several key welding consumables for the agricultural sector will also be showcased, including stainless steel low hydrogen electrodes in the new DriPac packaging, hardfacing electrodes, Vitemax and Transarc 6013.

The company’s exclusive industrial gas offer, Agrigas, which provides farmers with the flexibility to keep cylinders without having to pay a monthly rental for cylinders they do not use, will also be showcased, as well as the new Portashield® & PortaTig® shielding gases for small MIG & TIG welding requirements.

Afrox is the largest supplier of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in South Africa under the well-known Handigas brand that embraces a wide range of Handigas products that can be used either in an industrial or farming environment. The Afrox stand will showcase a display of Heatwave home appliances that make use of Handigas.

Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to learn more about Afrox’s Service Exchange scheme (Servex™), whereby standard welding and cutting equipment that is not in good working order can be instantly exchanged for a reconditioned equivalent at a reduced price, without having to wait for repairs to be carried out.

“We’re fully geared up to support the needs of customers in the agricultural sector across a spectrum of gas, welding and PPE requirements and we’re particularly excited about the new products being showcased this year,” says Perfett. “A professional technical team will be in attendance to answer questions, sell products from the stand and offer special prices. There will also be giveaways and competitions, including a Spin The Wheel competition. The team will also provide one-on-one demonstrations throughout the show’s duration.”
