HOFFER FLOW CONTROLS was incorporated in 1969 in the state of New Jersey. Hoffer Flow Controls has been designing and manufacturing quality turbine flowmeters and related process instrumentation for more than fifty years. Our initial experience was in the field of cryogenic flow measurement. Today our reputation in this field is synonymous with quality.
The development of the modern turbine flowmeter can be traced back to David Potter, founder of Potter Aeronautical. Potter pioneered the development of the turbine flowmeter for the Navy in the 1940s. The initial application for the Potter turbine flowmeter was in fuel flow measurement for Navy aircraft. Today fuel flow continues to be an ideal application for the turbine flowmeter.
Throughout the 1950s and early 1960’s business at Potter Aeronautical of Union, New Jersey, thrived. Potter held exclusive patents on the design of the turbine flowmeter. Potter Aeronautical began licensing the turbine flowmeter to other companies, both domestic and internationally.
When Potter Aeronautical closed in 1968, its’ production manager was a young engineer named Ken Hoffer. Ken then founded his own turbine flowmeter company… Hoffer Flow Controls.
For the first ten years in business, Hoffer Flow Controls specialized in cryogenic flow measurement systems. Hoffer pioneered the use of the turbine flowmeter in cryogenics.
During the late 1970’s we began to diversify into other markets, including oil patch, chemical, petrochemical, aerospace, and energy measurement. We have introduced our products to the European Common Market, Central and South America, and the Far East.
Today Hoffer Flow Controls manufactures high precision turbine flowmeters, not only for the cryogenic industry but also for the measurement of clean liquids and gases throughout the processing industries.
Hoffer Flow Controls, Inc is committed to the Quality System established by ISO 9001 that ensures our ultimate success by continually satisfying customer needs, improving performance, and making us competitive in the world market.
Only through the continuing partnership of customers, company, and employees can Hoffer set the quality standard for customer satisfaction and sustain a Worldwide leadership role in turbine flowmeter technology.
