Midco International started as a manufacturer of products ranging from onion peelers to air heaters. Midco International’s emergence as a worldwide leader in power burners coincides with some of the most significant events in the second half of the twentieth century.
Waste incineration increased during the 1950’s leading to the development of the company’s second major product, a burner producing a long powerful flame, called the Incinomite. A product type still produced solely by Midco.
In 1953, The Peoples Gas Company of Chicago requested a “one time only” application using gas to fire a charcoal free broiler for Don Ross’ new Blackhawk Restaurant. The innovation was a great success, leading to the industry’s first gas char broiler and the creation of EmberGlo; a subsidiary of Midco International dedicated to the needs of the food service industry.
In the 2000’s the MPG (Midco Power Gas) line of commercial power burners was developed to offer a more robust design and the ability to fire smaller and more efficient boiler applications including the high turndown style of heat exchanger applications.
Manufacturing processes have been a strong focus for Midco since 2000. Lean Manufacturing practices began in 2001 and the company became ISO 9001 certified. Year after year, we continue to eliminate waste and give customers as much value as possible in the products engineered, built, and shipped.
fits applications such as lower input BTU’s with Hi-Low and modulating capabilities to create energy efficient combustion needs in the market.
Midco introduced a line of Low NOx power gas burners that differentiates itself from the competition. Midco uses a premix gas blower, along with a zero governor to insure low NOx emissions. A patented heat exchanger chamber was developed for paint booth applications in the automotive finishing industry and process oven industry to meet the changing NOx requirements.
VA Series Gas Burners
developed for efficiency, high turn down and precise temperature control. The VA series uses direct fired burner technology, a variable speed blower and a modulating gas valve to promote better control over the combustion process resulting in a linkage-less, modulating high turndown burner. This design requires less time for burner setup while maintaining a true high turndown firing rate that controls precise temperature needs and reduces fuel consumption that the industry demands
