Intek was founded in 1976, under the direction of Dr. Joseph Harpster, with the goal of integrating advanced technologies to solve complex measurement problems. In early 1978, a major oil company approached Intek with a flow problem. The solution led to the development of Rheotherm flow instruments: flow meters and flow switches. The Company has built a reputation for highly accurate and reliable flow measurement systems, capable of operating at low flow rates and compatible with most industrial chemicals and gases. Intek’s instruments and services help customers in a wide range of industries, including Power Generation, Nuclear, Chemical/Petrochemical, Pulp & Paper, Semiconductor, Consumer Products/Packaging, and Water/Wastewater. Our experience and engineering skill also allow us to design custom flow solutions for customers with unique flow specifications
In 1992 a power generation company approached Intek with the question “can you measure flow in a vacuum?” The solution to this problem led to the development of Intek’s other major line of business: RheoVac systems and services for power plant condensers. Intek’s unique understanding of condenser performance which led to the development of these flow instruments and services help power plants optimize the operation of their steam surface condensers, improving heat rate and reducing operating and maintenance costs.
Intek is committed to maintaining a high level of technical excellence and customer service. Our quality assurance program is certified to ISO 9001:2008. We are active in supplying flow meters for the nuclear industry measuring fluids that expose sensors to over 100 Mrad (lifetime). In addition, the company has manufactured equipment for the space program to the rigorous requirements for NASA manned spacecraft. On the first anniversary of the on-orbit Space Station, Intek was one of only two companies recognized by Boeing with the Exceptional Company Performance Award, for excelling in technical, cost and schedule performance.
Intek takes pride in its involvement within the community. Intek is an active member of the local chamber of commerce and participates in many community events in support of the local economy and, in particular, area schools. Each year, Intek provides scholarships to the students who stand out at a local middle school science fair. Intek employees also enjoy volunteering their time to judge the submitted science projects.
