Maker Taylor Instruments and Liquid Carbonic

Maker Details The Liquid Carbonic Corporation, originally known as the Liquid Carbonic Company, was established in 1888 in Terre Haute, Indiana. For over 50 years, Liquid Carbonic concentrated on the production and supply of carbon dioxide and equipment related to soda fountain and soft drink bottling. In 1914, Liquid Carbonic introduced a low-pressure filling system for bottled carbonated beverages, which increased production and revolutionized the industry. When Taylor was founded in 1851, by George Taylor, he had a motto: accuracy first. Since then, our legacy has grown to include a wide range of measurement products for home and industry. From thermometers to altimeters used in fighter planes, we develop the most accurate measurement products. We've been in the measurement business for almost 150 years... which is why Taylor is the brand you can trust.
