TECTEG MFR. is a leading design and manufacturing company located in Aurora, Ontario, Canada. We have been designing and consulting on thermoelectric technologies for the past 20 years. We have our own product lines of complete appliances and equipment which enables us to test and improve our manufacturing techniques. Refine our own products and implement technological improvements into products we design for our new and existing commercial and industrial clients.
TECTEG MFR. has been working with Universities to expand and develop our IP for the past 8 years and is presently working with McMaster University and several scientists with combined thermoelectric experience of over 70 years to developed a proprietary manufacturing technology to produce high amp power generation (GENCELL ™) elements.
This constant desire to strive and improve the existing mature technology has put us on the forefront of thermoelectric innovation. We spend heavily in research and development as a precursor to what we believe will be a leading CARBON REDUCING Green TECHNOLOGY in the coming years. Call us today or email us with your application. You will find us responsive, educating and informative.
|A typical thermoelectric module is shown left. The module consists of pairs of p-type and n-type semiconductor thermo elements forming thermocouples which are connected electrically in series and thermally in parallel.|
|* In cooling mode: An electrical DC voltage is supplied to the module. Heat is pumped from one side to the other (Peltier effect), the result is that one side of the module becomes cold in an insulated environment. The other side becomes hot which, then requires a cooling system to maintain the DT. The better the cooling system the lower the cold side temperature. Bi2Te3 is the foundation material of all thermoelectric generator modules and thermoelectric cooling materials. There are others materials but extremely difficult to find commercially.||* In generating mode: A temperature gradient is maintained across the module called DT (Delta Temperature). A portion of the heat flux passing through the module is converted into electrical power (Seebeck Effect). The rest of the heat is taken away by a cooling system. Seebeck Thermoelectric power modules are engineered with specific features that allow them to survive large temperature stresses and differentials. Peltier modules or cooling modules have none of these feature making them inappropriate for thermoelectric power generation!|

Best to least effective thermoelectric TEG power cooling methods:
- Liquid cooling (flow) water.
- Static liquid (pot of water)!!
- Heat pipe with air flow (working fluid).
- Heat sink with air flow. (FAN)
- Heat sink natural convection. Least effective
