Maxitrol Company, commemorating its 65th anniversary, is holding a contest to find the oldest Maxitrol regulator still in service. The 65 years & Still Regulating Contest runs for 65 days, from Sep. 19, 2011m through Nov. 22, 2011.

“We think the 65 years & Still Regulating Contest is going to be fun but also very interesting,” says Rick Bargert, Maxitrol’s vice president of marketing and communications. “There are a lot of plumbers out there who will be curious to find out just how old the winning Maxitrol regulator will be.”

Founder Frank Kern Jr. purchased Maxitrol Company in 1946, when the company was making a line of gas pressure regulators, a model airplane engine, and serviced the local auto industry. The popularity of model airplanes declined after the war, and the company’s primary focus quickly shifted to regulator development and production. In 1948, Maxitrol Company was awarded a patent for its innovative Straight-Thru-Flow (STF) regulator design. The STF was the first significant pressure regulator design change in more than a century and became the technological foundation for the company’s business.

Contest details are at www.maxitrol.com.
