Heatworks was given the SC Launch Impact Award for 2019 during the third annual SC Launch Summit hosted by SCRA in Columbia, SC, where more than 200 entrepreneurs, industry representatives, government officials, investors and others involved in the innovation ecosystem gathered.
Heatworks, the Mount Pleasant-based company that is fundamentally redefining and reshaping the way we heat and use water, was selected for this award because its reimagined and game-changing Ohmic Array Technology has had such significant market impact and the company has used its impact to scale and grow in South Carolina. This is the first year the award was given.
“Every day, billions of people heat water using electricity; each one is wasting energy, water, and time,” said Heatworks Founder and CEO, Jerry Callahan. “For the last 100 years, this process has involved heat transfer through metallic heating elements – an inefficient, inferior, and wasteful solution. With our Ohmic Array Technology, graphite electrodes and advanced electronic controls are used to excite the naturally occurring minerals in water, directly and efficiently heating the water. And because nothing gets hotter than the water itself, zero scaling and corrosion occurs.”
Using this first truly disruptive technology in liquid heating in over 100 years, Heatworks is not only developing its own revolutionary products like the MODEL 3 Water Heater (which was named a TIME Magazine 2018 Best Invention) and the Tetra Countertop Dishwasher, but it is also in the process of signing commercial partnerships that will get Ohmic Array inside everything from coffee makers and kitchen appliances to milk pasteurizers and desalination plants. In these applications, consumers will experience unsurpassed levels of purity, precision, and performance.
