About Us

,

HOFFER FLOW CONTROLS was incorporated in 1969 in the state of New Jersey. For over thirty years Hoffer Flow Controls has been designing and manufacturing quality turbine flow meters and related process instrumentation. 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 1940`s. 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 1950`s 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. At the time Potter Aeronautical closed in 1968, its' production manager was 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 and petro-chemical, aerospace and energy measurement. More recently, we have introduced our products to the European Common Market, Central and South America and the Far East.

A key feature in our high precision turbine flowmeter that differentiates them from other turbine flow meters is the hybrid ceramic ball bearings. Designed to tolerate gas spinning during cool-down in any cryogenic fluid application, this type of bearing will far outlast all other types of open race bearings in any clean liquid or gas application. Open race ball bearings, as used by other manufacturers depend on the flowing fluid for lubricity therefore, open race bearings can fail quickly. Our flowmeter with the self-lubricating ceramic bearing will far outlast other turbine meters with conventional bearings.

Today Hoffer Flow Controls manufactures high precision turbine flow meters, not only for the cryogenic industry but is the world leader in turbine flowmeter technology for the measurement of clean liquids and gases throughout the processing industries.

Teflon Series for Corrosive Service

All wetted parts are Teflon. Magnets are embedded in Teflon blades of rotor assembly. Within the Hoffer turbine flowmeter, the flowing media engages a vaned rotor causing it to rotate at an angular velocity proportional to flow rate. The pickup coil senses the spinning motion of the rotor through the housing and converts it into a pulsing electrical signal. Summation of the pulsing electrical signal relates directly to the total flow, while the frequency is linearly related to flow rate. Sleeve type bearing, rotor, cones, and flow straightening sections are machined Teflon.
