Linna and Bennett’s Trip to Maxi-Therm

Maxi-Therm joined the Raven product line only a few short months ago. They offer innovative solutions for steam applications, including steam to hot water, clean steam and many more. Linna and Bennett were the first of the Raven team to visit Maxi-Therm in Montreal!

Both Bennett and Linna were very impressed by Maxi-Therm’s innovative designs.  Bennett got the chance to take an up-close look at their approach to high pressure steam to hot water generation, which saves mechanical room footprint space and reduces energy consumption by 5-20% by eliminating all flash steam loss! They were also fascinated by the design of Maxi-Therm’s heaters. Not only are they compact, but they are also skid packaged that comes with required control valves and electronic controls for a simple plug and play install. Bennett and Linna got to see the various industries that have benefited from installing a Maxi-Therm package, including universities, hospitals, food processors, and many more.

The Maxi-Therm Facility has a state of the art research and development laboratory. This is where Bennett got a peak at Maxi-Therm’s most current energy-saving innovation – a micro steam powered motor that can both convert high pressure steam to low pressure steam and harvest lost superheat into electricity!

Aside from a great visit at Maxi-Therm, Bennett and Linna also enjoyed exploring Montreal. They visited Parc Maisonneuve, Mount Royal Park, and the Redpath Museum at McGill University. Even though the meals with the manufacturers were delicious, they couldn’t leave Montreal without trying a smoked meat sandwich and poutine.

Linna and Bennett also got the chance to head over to Security Chimney’s Facility in Laval. This was Linnas first time at Security, so she was happy to finally meet everyone and be able to put a face to everyone’s name. Linna expected most of the manufacturing to be automated but was surprised at the great deal of manual work and coordination required for each order. Now she has a much greater appreciation for all the custom pieces that Security manufactures for us!
