ARI has become a major player in the South African air release and intake market. As the single largest air valve manufacturer in the world with very innovative designs, ARI is selling their version of a three stage “non-slam” air valve to compete in the SA market. This valve has been fully tested and has been sold in SA since 2000 with great success. New to the market is the unique and innovative D070 operating without a float and utilizing the rolling diaphragm principle. This valve is very effective in preventing slam and local up – surges. Sub – surface valves that can be buried below ground is also new to ARI range. These valves for water and sewage come complete with manhole and isolating valve. Service and maintenance operations are performed entirely from the surface.
Here are some of the major benefits of the ARI Air valves:
- Large orifice with capacities exceeding most manufactures.
- Optional Non-slam element in the D060 is outside the pressure body so no extra seals are incorporated.
- Small orifice for high pressure venting is at least 10 x larger than competition.
- Small orifice has a self cleaning effect, so seldom blocks up.
- Unique seal design allows sealing at low pressure of 2m.
- Unique seal design eliminates leakages - 10 Year Guarantee against seal leaks.
- The kinetic air and vacuum component of the D070 is nominally closed when the line is not operating, thus preventing the infiltration of foreign particles and insects into the water system.
- Sewage air valves eliminates sewage fouling the sealing mechanism.
