Oasis Strives To Use Earth Friendly Technology

Thermoelectric Cooling is one GREEN Alternative to HFC refrigerant

What is thermoelectric cooling?

Thermoelectric cooling uses a solid state device that acts as a heat pump to move heat from one side of the device to the other.

The device is commonly referred to as a thermo electric cooler (TEC) and is made up of numerous pairs of semiconductors enclosed by ceramic wafers on the top and bottom.

Rather than using a refrigerant gas and a compressor, TECs use only DC power and have no moving parts or complex assemblies.

TECs are very small, light weight and rugged compared to a traditional compressor refrigeration system.

 
TECs come in a variety of sizes. Shown here is a size that would be suitable for using in a water cooler.
 
The top layer of ceramic has been removed so that the semi-conductor “cubes” can be seen.
 
When the DC power is supplied, the Cold side absorbs heat and moves it to the Hot side.The hot Side is cooled by a heat sink and fan.
