Thermoelectric cooling for industrial enclosures

Download Now


The utilization of thermoelectric technology to cool industrial enclosures can provide a number of advantages for certain applications when compared to "conventional" cooling methods like vapor-compression refrigeration and water-cooled systems such as air conditioners and air-to-water heat exchangers. Using an electrical current passed through semiconductors to facilitate temperature change, thermoelectric coolers eliminate the need for refrigerants and operate with fewer moving parts — cooling enclosures to temperatures below or near ambient conditions, while producing far less noise and vibration than conventional cooling methods.

This paper discusses how thermoelectric coolers work, improvements that have been made in their efficiency and the advantages of thermoelectric cooling for industrial enclosures.
