GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Heat Pipe Technology Inc., a division of MiTek, a Berkshire Hathaway company, announced that it has opened a new Demo and Innovation Center, an extension of its Gainesville, Fla., manufacturing facility. Designed for advanced on-site research, as well as to showcase its technology for visiting customers and engineers, the Demo and Innovation Center has working heat pipe systems on display, where visitors and staff can use proprietary modeling software to verify performance and determine the savings achievable through the company’s passive dehumidification systems.

Heat Pipe Technology said the Demo and Innovation Center is one of the projects completed with a recent infusion of investment capital. The investment, along with changes made to Heat Pipe Technology’s manufacturing processes, has reduced product delivery lead times by more than one third, said the company.

“Heat Pipe Technology is a widely recognized global leader in implementing energy conservation technologies, and our ‘wrap-around’ moisture-removal dehumidification systems can increase HVAC systems dehumidification capability by up to 50 percent,” said Mazen Awad, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “With our new Demo Center, we now have the opportunity to model and demonstrate our solutions for customers, researchers, design engineers, and journalists. It’s a major addition to our overall capability.”
