The SUPERPRESSURE and HYGRODYNAMICS divisions of Newport Scientific trace their roots to the American Instrument Company (AMINCO) which opened for business in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1919.
Superpressure Metal Fabrication Shop
When high-pressure operations became of interest to the chemical industry, AMINCO’s ‘SUPERPRESSURE’ products fulfilled the need. SUPERPRESSURE equipment could be found in laboratories, pilot plants, and full-scale production plants of the leading chemical manufacturers throughout the world.
Military Aircraft Hose Test Device
The development of nuclear technology also found use for SUPERPRESSURE equipment, as did the missile and aerospace programs.
Typical Pilot Plant System
Around 1970, working with a team of engineers from the National Bureau of Standards, AMINCO developed and began selling a Smoke Chamber for testing the smoke generating characteristics of burning materials. The SUPERPRESSURE division eventually took on the production of this equipment. Over the years, this product line has been serving the aviation and building materials fire testing industry.
University of Maryland Research Lab
In the 1970’s, AMINCO was acquired by Baxter-Travenol. Over the years several divisions were splintered off as separate companies, but eventually, SUPERPRESSURE, Inc. and HYGRODYNAMICS, Inc. were merged and became two divisions of the privately held Newport Scientific, Inc. company.The HYGRODYNAMICS product line has benefited from massive strides in electronics technology over the decades. While the original Dunmore-type sensor is still in use with most HYGRODYNAMICS products, new electronic techniques have improved the stability and longevity of all the systems.
