Where thermoelectric cooling competes with compressor-based systems
Laird now provides compact, solid-state thermoelectric cooling solutions that meet the requirements of a wide range of beverage cooling applications, from soda fountains to coffee machines to wine coolers.
Compared to standard compressor based solutions, the 12V or 24V DC thermoelectric modules (TEMs) and thermoelectric assemblies (TEAs) offer superior reliability, design flexibility via vertical integration capabilities, and an overall lower cost of ownership. Thermoelectric coolers also operate at lower noise levels and provide a more environmentally friendly solution. Unlike compressor based systems, thermoelectric technology does not utilize ozone depleting refrigerants, which must be phased out of new and existing equipment in the European Union by 2022.
Customized air-to-air thermoelectric assemblies (AA060 Series) or direct-to-air thermoelectric assemblies (DA075 Series) offer superior cooling without creating condensation that can lead to mildew and unsanitary conditions.
