Kevin Kerlin began his career in 1999 as an automotive mechanic while completing his undergraduate studies from the University of Utah. After receiving a BSME in 2003, he worked as a mechanical engineer at Raser Technologies for five years in the R&D department designing electric motor prototypes. After completing his MBA from Southern Utah University in 2008, he cofounded Helidyne LLC where he co-developed an innovative geothermal and waste heat expander. The total-flow design is the first of its nature to provide a self-cleaning mechanism for scale deposit removal, and is the only known rotary design to fully accommodate TFC (Trilateral Flash Cycle) operation. He remains with the company today serving as V.P of both Business Development and Engineering.
