is a global leader in analytical, dental, industrial and medical
instrumentation. Since 1968, the company has specialized in the
development, manufacture and sale of precision instruments that measure
and control low flow gases and liquids for these applications. Our
54,000-sq. ft. fully integrated headquarters and manufacturing facility
is located in Hatfield, PA, 35 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
PORTER's passion for
precision is a legacy dating from our founder's invention of a machine,
using a heat/vacuum process, capable of precisely sizing the internal
dimension and configuration of glass tubing within 50 millionths of an
inch. This invention led to the first production of interchangeable,
glass rotameter tubes.
Today, in that same
tradition of precision, PORTER flow and pressure control instruments,
both standard and/or modified to customer design requirements, excel in
some of the world's most performance critical applications. They play a
vital role in the production of computer chips. They're trusted for the
regulation and measurement of anesthetic gases in operating rooms world
wide. They aid in the production of pharmaceutical drugs, cutting-edge
biotech research, dental patient sedation and environmental monitoring.
In short, when the application has no room for error, the world can put
its trust in PORTER Instrument.
