Steam Valve Technology
Our smart steam valve with patented internal parts may look like any 3-way valve, but it precisely and efficiently injects just the right amount of high velocity steam into a process to achieve controlled and consistent fluid heating. Each Hydro-Thermal steam heater is custom engineered to the customer's exact process conditions and is warranted to work to those specifications.
Hydro-Thermal steam heating saves energy, saves maintenance and saves money when it replaces heat exchangers, effectively helping small and large companies achieve sustainability.
At Hydro-Thermal, our steam heaters provide a way for companies to achieve their sustainability initiatives. Strategic research partnerships fostered with our customers, leading Midwestern universities, research associations and independent R&D engineering firms, help challenge our fluid heating specialists. These smart partnerships facilitate improvements to our products, lead to product enhancements and inspire new product development.
We are currently working on proprietary new technology and enhancements with our partners in the food, wastewater, confectionary, dairy, meat processing, renewable energy and pharmaceutical industries.
Since 1963 Hydro-Thermal has held patents on our steam heating technology and currently holds several patents pending on exciting new heater technology. Our culture fosters innovation and encourages our engineers to continually develop new products and product enhancements.
Not only does Hydro-Thermal hold over a dozen patents, but our products are specified in systems developed by leading system integrators and are tied to over 60 of these off-shoot product patents.
