OUR STORY

Arivi is all about making people’s lives better by offering innovative, quality products at a reasonable price.

Our team is experienced at designing breakthrough products, services and processes. Over the years, we have identified a need in the market for products that are both affordable and durable. Unfortunately, affordability and durability tend to be mutually exclusive. Cheap products tend not to be durable. Durable products tend to be expensive. Fuelled by a passion for using innovative design to improve people’s lives, we’re creating a range of domestic products that will meet these needs, and more.  

 

  

MEET EVA. A SAFE, CLEAN-BURNING AND FUEL EFFICIENT PARAFFIN STOVE. 

Eva is designed to meet the stringent SANS national standard and even exceeds the standard and produces less than half the amount of carbon monoxide required by law. Eva cooks food quickly at high power, using less fuel than other stoves.

 

 

THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR THE RIGHT CONTEXT.

 Many households in South Africa use paraffin stoves every day. South Africa has some of the strictest laws in the world governing the safety of these stoves, but bad quality stoves continue causing fires that result in tragic injury to people and destruction in neighbourhoods, year after year. We believe these households deserve a high quality, safe stove to help solve the problem of fire danger.

 

 

 

FEATURES AT A GLANCE.

The Arivi Eva stove comes equipped with the best in performance and durability in the market. We tested hundreds of situations to make sure that each unit conforms to strict useage and safety standards. Add to that the aesthetic beauty and simplicity of the design and the Arivi becomes more than just an appliance, but an integral part of a home.

8 MINUTE BOIL

Boils 1 litre of water super fast in 8 minutes. Reducing time and money spent on cooking.

13 HOUR BURN

More than 13 hours of burning time on the maximum burn setting.

AUTOMATIC OFF

Safety is a priority of the Arivi Eva. The stove automatically turns off when knocked over.

SAFE FUEL TANK

Carefully designed airflow over the tank keeps the fuel temperature safely at 37 degrees C.

COOL TOUCH

The closed housing keeps flames away from the outside.

CLEAN BURN

Efficient afterburner creates a cleaner burn, reducing harmful emissions.

 

PERFORMANCE TESTED DESIGN AND GROUNDBREAKING TECHNOLOGY.

Eva’s burner automatically shuts off when the stove is lifted, moved, tilted or when the fuel cap is opened. The stove does not leak paraffin even when shaken and a cool-touch wall separates the burner from the fuel cap and the user’s hands.

Extensive development of over 100 prototypes has created a burner that runs at a high overall cooking efficiency at all power settings and maintains consistent power for over 500 hours in continuous testing. This efficiency is actually visible. Instead of the customary lazy orange flame of normal wick stoves, Eva burns with small, efficient, blue jets similar to gas stoves. The approach to the design of Eva has been to use technologies such as injection molding, composites and computational flow modeling software to create a radically better stove.

 

 

DEDICATED TO LOCAL PRODUCTION.

Eva is hand-built in South Africa. From the start, we wanted to create a local product that creates jobs and income for South Africans. Most of our raw material is bought locally, except where there is no local equivalent. At a time when outsourcing is the norm, it has taken thousands of hours of hard work to achieve our goal of building our products locally. We are committed to a strong local manufacturing economy because our dream is to benefit our country as much as possible with each product we build.

 

 

FUTURE FOCUSSED, FOR A BETTER TOMORROW.

We believe that people need innovative products that are affordable but have great quality. Our Eva stove is the first of our domestic energy products that meet these requirements. 

Eva’s technology can be used in other stove variants and for heating devices. Arivi plans to introduce a heater and a geyser based on the technology. Each of these is a core product on Arivi’s roadmap. 

In addition to these products, a selection of accessories which enhance the benefits of the core products will form a comprehensive range of domestic energy equipment for Arivi customers.
