Heatworks’ Ohmic Array Technology Recognized at 2018 InnoVision Awards
Patented technology uses water as the heating element replacing metal heating elements
Mount Pleasant, SC – November 14, 2018 – Heatworks, the company that is fundamentally redefining and reshaping the way we heat and use water, has been honored with the Technology Development Award at the 2018 South Carolina InnoVision Awards Ceremony for their reimagined and game-changing Ohmic Array Technology. The InnoVision Awards program, which marked its 20th anniversary this year, recognizes businesses, entrepreneurs, educators and individuals who “set new standards for innovation by creating, developing and implementing their visionary thinking, thereby invigorating the South Carolina economy”.
Heatworks’ proprietary Ohmic Array Technology is at the foundation of its award-winning products, including the MODEL 3 Smart Water Heater and Tetra Countertop Dishwasher.
“We created MODEL 3 and Tetra with the mission of improving everyday lives while also reducing everyone’s global footprint,” said Heatworks Founder and CEO, Jerry Callahan. “We’re extremely honored to be recognized for our achievements worldwide, and proud of our grassroots heritage in South Carolina.”
Powered by Heatworks’ patented Ohmic Array Technology, the MODEL 3 does not use traditional metal heating elements that can rust and scale over time. Instead, Heatworks uses water as the heating element. Through graphite electrodes and advanced electronic controls, the naturally occurring minerals in water are excited, directly and efficiently heating the water. And, since water is used as the heating element, the hot water is purer than water from any other water heaters available in the industry today.
The unique water heating process coupled with the MODEL 3’s smart capabilities, creates a consistent and precise experience for any user. Since the MODEL 3 is 99% energy efficient, users will get more hot water and reduce the overall cost of heating their family’s water by about 40%. For the average American family, that’s $240 back each year. Heatworks’ groundbreaking app can be used to monitor things like the amount of hot water and energy use each day, and more.
Since its launch at CES 2018, Tetra has been praised for its diverse feature set, faster, eco-friendly cycles and modular rack system. Consumers and media alike have deemed Tetra as one of the most revolutionary appliances for kitchens of all sizes and a dream come true for apartment dwellers.
Tetra is a revolutionary countertop dishwasher that requires no plumbing connections and can be placed and used anywhere with a standard electrical outlet. Even with its small footprint, the dishwasher holds two full place settings (including plates, bowls, cups, and flatware), or can be adjusted to accommodate 10 plates or 12-pint glasses. After a meal, Tetra users can simply load their dishes onto the modular rack system, pour a gallon of water and some detergent into the unit, and turn it on. It takes only minutes to go through the entire wash cycle, and since Tetra is transparent, you can witness the mysterious action right in front of your eyes.
