American Temprite Company having been founded in 1926, originated and manufactured some of the earliest components devised for the nascent refrigeration industry. Temprite 500 Series Oil Separators developped by the original team of Temprite engineers in the 1940’s, have been the pioneer for all the oil separators in the world currently in production. The oil separator line of Temprite has been sold to Alco Dispensing in 1973 then to be purchased by the Schmidt family in 1985. Since then Temprite continues to bring innovative and robust designs to the commercial refrigeration, scientific and refrigerant reclaim/recovery industries.
