From the Desk of Jim Peterson: Driving Value Through Expert Service and Optimization

During the first half of 2024, Caloris – through its activities – demonstrated what truly sets our company apart: our unparalleled service capabilities. While we’re proud to be a leading OEM provider of evaporators, membrane filtration equipment, and spray dryers for the dairy, food, and beverage industries, our commitment to our customers extends far beyond the initial sale.
