Actuator Options Available

Hydro-Thermal's heaters utilize a Fisher reverse-acting diaphragm actuator (“fail close”). Generally coupled with a filter/regulator and a Fisher DVC 2000 or a DVC 6200 positioner that converts a 4-20 mA DC input signal to pneumatic output signal to the actuator. For high vibration applications remote mount positioners are available. Alternative positioners are available depending on unique processing conditions or upon request. Please contact Hydro-Thermal for more details.


Applications for Meat and Poultry Processing

A Winning Partnership

Peace of Mind for Beef Processors

“We depend on Hydro-Thermal’s products for their ease of installation, flawless startup, and consistent/accurate results to within a single degree of target.”– Tim Foster, Owner, MPC Group

MPC Group is a solutions provider serving the beef industry since 2003. Its team of experts – owner and founder Tim Foster, Senior Project Managers Mike Parton and Mike Fleeman and Master of Process Piping Darrell Swint – bring decades of combined experience helping beef production facilities work safely and efficiently.

Tim was introduced to steam heating technology from Hydro-Thermal early in his career. He was impressed with it’s ability to keep precise and consistent temperature control-ensuring USDA compliance for food safety. When forming MPC Group, Tim knew his customers would benefit from this innovative way of heating. A direct partnership with Hydro-Thermal was established to focus on providing beef processors with a better heating experience.
