ATLANTA — Today from AHR Expo 2019, Intellihot Inc., a manufacturer of commercial, tankless water heaters used in some of the world’s largest hotels, multi-family residential buildings, stadiums and medical facilities, announced that it has signed an exclusive license with NASA that enables Intellihot to power its current and future products with combustion technology developed by NASA.
Intellihot showcased its tankless water heater systems and remote monitoring, predictive analytics service at the AHR Expo, the HVACR industry’s annual convention attended by as many as 60,000, in Atlanta this week.
The commercial patent license will allow Intellihot to deploy NASA’s novel combustion burner technology (U.S. Patent 8,197,249 titled “Fully Premixed Low Emission, High Pressure Multi-Fuel Burner”) into its entire product line.
Intellihot’s tankless systems provide endless hot water only when needed, eliminate waste and environmental impact ,and cut down greenhouse emissions by over 40 percent.
Developed by NASA, the fully premix burner design offers increased control and stability with better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. NASA currently uses the technology to simultaneously measure combustion product concentrations and temperature in its High Pressure Gaseous Burner Facility, a laboratory that develops and evaluates advanced engines for future aircraft. The technology has benefited the field of aerospace by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improved safety by eliminating flame flashback.
“At Intellihot, we’re always striving for endless progress and innovative ways to eliminate waste,” said Sri Deivasigamani, CEO of Intellihot. “We are delighted to deploy NASA’s technology into our current and future energy products to make our world even more efficient and sustainable.”
Founded in 2009 in Peoria, Illinois, Intellihot is a clean technology, IoT company with a mission to do more with less and to create intelligent energy transformations. Today, it builds IoT devices and commercial tankless water heaters that help customers cut energy costs and eliminate downtime.
With customers like Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, 340 on the Park, Chicago’s second tallest residential building, Costco and Hilton Hotels, Intellihot is working towards a waste-free future in homes, businesses, stadiums and facilities across the planet.
