Hydro-Thermal Innovation LabAt Hydro-Thermal we constantly seek ways to reinvent our products and processes to be more efficient and effective for our customers. In our 80 year history of direct steam injection innovation, we’ve evolved our expertise from paper mills in Wisconsin to a vast array of diverse industries in more than 80 countries around the world. 

We realize that creating an environment where creativity thrives is critical to our company and our customers’ success. Our culture fosters innovation throughout the organization and encourages our engineers to continually develop new products and product enhancements.  

Also fueling our innovation is our strategic research partnerships with people outside our building, our customers. Leading Midwestern universities, research associations and independent R&D engineering firms all play a role in challenging our fluid heating specialists. The Hydro-Thermal Partners in Technology program facilitates improvements and enhancements to current products, as well as, and inspires new product development.

Aside from our own awards, Hydro-Thermal’s revolutionary approaches have also played a role in our customers being recognized for innovation. In 2010 Creekstone Farms was awarded the Smart Sourcing Award by Food Manufacturing Magazine for their use of Hydroheaters™ in their central hot water system. In 2011 a Hydro-Thermal customer who uses our heaters for an immersion cooking process, received a Quality Award as a supplier to McDonald’s USA.
