Waukesha-based Hydro-Thermal Corp expects to grow by 20 percent this year due to the launch of their new product and application in the market. After almost tripling over the last 12 years, the new introduced product is for the good in the food industry. It is a smart cooking system known as the Silverline. Jim Zaiser, president of the company will antiquate the standard kettle cooking process.
In 2014, the product won an Innovation Quotient Award presented by the BizTimes Media. Silverline holds the food temperatures at a particular set point and uses a patented steam cooking design for decreasing heat fluctuation and burning of the food. The product gives the food companies the ability to create new recipes, reduce the cooking times, easy maintenance, and manage consistency easily.
Silverline will officially launch this month and in this same year, Hydro-Thermal also plans to roll out a new application for the ethanol industry called the slurry tank heating. Hydro-Thermal technology results in tank damage due to cavity on the walls and steam bubbles.
However, Hydro-Thermal’s solution poses an installation of a recirculation loop over the slurry tank. This tank will be heated using a JetCooker. Introduction of such a system will prevent the damage to the tank from cavity breaking in.
The company has typically launched one new product in every two years and 2015 is going to be a great year for innovation and growth. The company plans to expand its product offering in 2016 as well.
Silverline also mixes steam and processes other liquids to deliver consistent temperature and precision. Hydro-Thermal spreads out in more than 80 countries to serve various industries such as pulp and paper, chemical, and waste-water treatment industries.
The product is vividly different from its competitors as its components are specifically designed to serve each customer’s needs using one size that fits all.
At its 36,000-square-foot facility, Hydro-Thermal employs around 60 and another 10 worldwide. It also plans to hire eight employees in all its departments including marketing, manufacturing, and engineering.
