New Phase in the growth of A.R.I. Air valves in South Africa

A.R.I. has been in South Africa for approximately 20 years, and has shown steady growth over this period. The company is now a dominant player in the SA air valve market, despite very strong opposition from a well entrenched local manufacturer, and recently from another three copies of the same product with some slight modifications of the original air valve.

In order to show its total commitment to the South African market, A.R.I. have, over the last 2 years, worked towards offering a new range of air valve locally in SA. This product will be available in South Africa during the next few months.

The decision was made 2 years ago to make A.R.I. “Proudly South African” and the aim is to produce the highest quality products on the market. This means that in-depth field testing and development must take place before a product is entered into the market and you, as the client, get to see it. This, of course, takes time. Unlike some of the recent copies of the original SA air valve, which entered the market without any such rigorous testing, A.R.I. makes very sure that the final product is perfect. Our clients are not the proving fields for A.R.I. air valves. As the largest manufacturer of air valves in the world, A.R.I. spends an enormous amount of money on research and development to ensure the perfection of new innovations. This has resulted in a range of products which are unique, and offer many advantages over any other air valve.

A.R.I. hosts an annual, week long seminar in Israel, which has been lauded by all the attendees who have been part of it over the last 10 years. The seminar offers a platform through which to share knowledge and ideas, and covers many subjects related to water and hydraulics, including water hammer and the use of the ARIavCAD air valve sizing and location software. There will be a panel of some of the world’s leading experts in the field, who will guide and enhance the conversation. We will also hear from attendees from all over the world regarding their experiences. There is normally a South African contingent of up to 10, and we’d love to see you there.

The up-coming seminar is from February 26th to March 5th 2017. Attendance is free and includes accommodation, meals and visits. The only cost for the attendee is the airfare to Israel. To find out more go to
