Thermoelectric Cooling Technology - Will Peltier Modules Supersede the Compressor?

Published 19 March 2013 | By BINDER

The strengths of Peltier technology lie in the scalability of the cooling elements, their location independence, reliability and precision control. In addition, Peltier elements have no moving parts, essentially making them vibration- and noise-free. The primary advantage over conventional compressor cooling units is elimination of flammable or environmentally harmful refrigerants. However, maximum performance and efficiency of Peltier cooling systems are considerably lower than that of compressor systems.
