Thermoelectric material: The Core of Thermoelectric Module

The most commonly used thermoelectric materials are Bi2Te3, Pbte, SiGe. Due to crystal structure the material Bi2Te3 has its own merit and importance over others. Its structure makes it different as allow four times more electrical resistivity two times more thermal conductivity.

During power production, the near about two third of energy produced from fossil fuel is wasted in form of heat. Many industries are trying to consume this heat into useful electricity and this can be possible by good thermoelectric material, however, it’s very hard to find such material. To use the thermoelectric material for commercial purpose, it’s necessary to increase their efficiency and it is possible now by the use of doping tin selenide with sodium as a thermoelectric material researched by Northwestern University. This material produce large amount of electricity significantly instead of undoped material.

Ferrotec nord is a company who offers the product made from thermoelectric material. The company is good enough to develop, manufacture and offers its customers a series of thermoelectric generating modules for conversion of heat to

DC electricity. The most commonly used thermoelectric

materials are Bi 2 Te 3, Pbte, SiGe. The thermoelectric material

used by ferrotec nord is Bi 2 Te 3 . They manufactured a number of thermoelectric modules which can be used for various electric equipments such as fans, light sources, mobile mosquito trap generators, self-contained power supplies, battery chargers, pipeline cathode protection equipment, hot water flow meters, geothermal heat converters and devices using power from centralized heating systems. The lower temperature can be up to 250 0 C, medium can be (up to 250 0 C to 500 0 C) and higher temperature can be higher than 500 0 C for the applications designed with the thermo material.

C for the applications designed with the thermo material. The high efficiency peltier module configured from

The high efficiency peltier module configured from Bi 2 Te 3 material is also available for lower range by Ferrotec nord. The modules may be applied for long time at a heat source of upto 180 0 C. Remember, the conversion efficiency of heat to electricity can be maximum 3-4%

for Bi 2 Te 3 based thermoelectric module. Also it may be covered with carbon thermal for conducting heat sore more or lesser as per customer request.

Date 25 Jan- 2016

Although many thermoelectric materials are used such as Bismuth Telluride (Bi2Te3), Lead Telluride (PbTe), Silicon Germanium (SiGe), and Bismuth-Antimony (Bi-Sb) alloys according to situation, but due to crystal structure, Bi 2 Te 3 has its own merit and importance over others. It is highly anisotropic in nature. Its structure makes it different as allow four times more electrical resistivity two times more thermal conductivity.
