Restaurants impose one of the toughest conditions for water heaters. Available space is extremely limited and operating conditions are harsh from thousands of temperature and pressure cycles. Not to mention the loss of hot water causes significant business disruption and revenue loss. In this webinar you’ll learn how to design a system that is not only compact and reliable but also economically efficient.

Sridhar (Sri) Deivasigamani didn’t set out to create the first on-demand hot water heater. But, after returning home from a 30-hour flight only to find his basement completely flooded from a broken water heater, he knew a worthy challenge when he saw it. After mopping up the basement, the robotics engineer immediately started troubleshooting his water heater. By sunrise, he had the idea for what would become the first on-demand, tankless commercial water heater. Today, Intellihot boasts several large-scale clients including Levi's® Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, 340 on the Park, Chicago’s second tallest residential building, and Hilton Hotels. The success of Intellihot continues to flourish, with revenue growing in excess of 100% year-over-year. The company now employs 50 people in both Galesburg and Peoria, and continues to secure key partnerships nationwide. Prior to founding Intellihot, Deivasigamani spent 10 years at Caterpillar as a mechanical engineer with a focus on marine engines and control systems. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Manipal Institute of Technology, India and a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University. Deivasigamani envisions a future of extraordinary efficiency, where not a watt of energy or drop of water is wasted. In his spare time, he likes to work on motorcycles and robotic lawnmowers.
