About us

African Petrochemicals is South Africa’s leading bi-monthly print and digital trade magazine for the past 15 years. Featuring all the latest petrochemical industry news, special reports, technological advances etc.


Afrivalve, part of the eDART Group of Companies, have further expanded their range to now offer the Gemü Valve and Control Systems range in the mining and metal refining sector in Africa. This further compliments the eDART Slurry Control Valves, C-Tech knife gate valves, Red Roc Pinch valves and AVI range of industrial valves.

Gregor Hopton of Afrivalve has over 20 years of experience selling the Gemü range in South Africa and knows the quality and reliability that the brand offers. This gives Afrivalve the ability to offer a complete valve solution typically from Mill discharge all the way through the process to the final refined metal. This was a necessary addition due to Afrivalve’s success with larger projects in the mining sector and the customer’s preference for a single source solution.

The Gemü range includes metal body valves, metal body lined in thermoplastic (or Fluoropolymer lined) and full thermoplastic valves. Full bore and Weir Type Diaphragm, Butterfly, Angle Seat, Globe and Solenoid valves are commonly used in the mining sector. Both abrasive and corrosive applications are catered for in the wide range of materials of construction. Control solutions including position indicators, positioners and Variable Area Flowmeters.

In-house expertise within the eDART Group includes mechanical, instrumentation, process and design engineers. Control valve sizing and specialised valve training courses are also offered within the group and more information is available on request.

Gemü valves are stocked locally and are available from their new facility in Kya Sand – Randburg, Gauteng.
