Milwaukee, WI-It’s easy for Brooks Stevens, Inc to take a page from history when we wrote the book.  Being in business for well over 75 years, it’s no wonder that we have partnerships dating back several decades.  BSI recently partnered with Cleaver Brooks, one of our clients from our legendary past. We were tasked to redesign the front burner enclosures for the FLX Flexible Watertube Boiler series.  We helped style similar products in our history-the 1940s (talk about design that lasts).

The Watertube Boiler is designed to minimize thermal stress and provide quick response in a compact unit which includes an integral fuel burner.  Brooks Stevens, Inc provided Industrial Design, Mechanical Engineering and Prototyping of the burner envelope to achieve a solution that decreased noise levels, allowed intuitive access to engineering and service technicians, and ensured the burner product life will span 15 years. If history is any indication, this product and its aesthetically appealing enclosure will revolutionize commercial Watertube boilers.
