Maxitrol is the manufacturer of premium natural gas regulators used in commercial, residential, and industrial applications. Frank Kern Jr. acquired the Detroit Regulator Company in 1946. In 1953, the company changed its name to Maxitrol Company after being awarded a patent for its Straight-Thru-Flow (STF) regulator design, known as the Maxitrol (for Maximum Control). This innovative design provided a significant reduction in pressure drop, permitting the regulator for use at higher capacities at low inlet pressures. This change had a substantial impact on the industry and is the foundation of the company’s growth.
