Caloris Engineering Receives Community Impact Award

EASTON, Md.—The Talbot County Office of Economic Development honored Caloris Engineering with a 2017 Community Impact Award at a ceremony on April 21.

In addition to recent technological advances in the area of wastewater processing and a new patent for the CALORIS AGILIXTM Mobile Evaporator, the award recognizes Caloris’ growth from its original group of four co-founders in 2006 to its current slate of 32 employees at its headquarters in Easton, Md., in addition to other facilities in Cambridge, Md., and Modesto, Calif.

Caloris also received citations from Maryland’s Congressional delegation — U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, and U.S. Representative Andy Harris, as well as the Maryland General Assembly, at the ceremony hosted by the Talbot County Office of Economic Development in Easton, Md.

Caloris Co-Founder and Engineering Manager Dan Neth accepted a Community Impact award, which was presented to Caloris by Talbot County’s Office of Economic Development.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from the Talbot County Office of Economic Development and look forward to continued growth here in Easton and at our other locations in Cambridge and Modesto,” said Caloris President Jim Peterson.

Founded in Easton in 2006 by Art and Linda Zimmer, Daniel Neth and Barry McFarland, Caloris offers thermal evaporation technology, membrane filtration and spray drying process systems for food and dairy industries, as well as for water reuse and wastewater treatment applications, serving customers throughout North America. Caloris also offers process assessments, field support, pilot testing and numerous other services.

Last year, Water and Wastes Digest named the installation of a CALORIS CONCENTRIX® MVR Evaporator at the Honda Precision Parts of Georgia manufacturing facility in Tallapoosa, Ga., a Top Project for 2016. The Concentrix unit was tasked with reducing the facility’s daily wastewater volume by 90% so the water recovered could be reused for plant needs such as cooling tower makeup water, etc.

Later in the year, Caloris received a patent for its Agilix mobile evaporator, a complete wastewater evaporation system mounted onto a single flatbed trailer so it can reach almost any location. Applications include evaporating fracking fluids from oil and gas wells, draining wastewater ponds, and a wide spectrum of other remedial needs.
