TECTEG MFR. is a Div. of Thermal Electronics Corp., established 1996. We are fully focused on the manufacturing and production of Seebeck power modules and Peltier TEC module based devices in our power & cooling divisions. We also have extensive design experience manufacturing products. Our experience in the Thermoelectric technology spans 27 years.
TECTEG MFR. Over the last 30 years has been developing a novel Seebeck effect design for use in thermoelectric power generators. In 2020 it introduced the Rabbit Ears 100W wood stove generator. A superior designed Thermoelectric Generator 100 Watt wood stove generator, exhibiting superior performance and reliability. The 100w TEG thermoelectric generator system is outstanding. The unit comes with a 24″ long flue 6″ in diameter already assembled for quick set-up. The unique tube in tube heat exchange offer superior cooling on the cold side designed for maximum DT so maximum TEG power can be achieved. Heat absorbers on both sides of the pipe, use heat sinks to penetrates the flue stream maximizing heat absorption for superior power production. The patented design is best in class and was designed by a 30 year veteran in the thermoelectric generator field. It comes with a 12VDC mag drive high efficiency pump, and a custom made Dc to Dc charge controller with PLC functionality. The TEG system uses PEX machined tubes for easy plumbing and offers exceptional TEG design and versatility.
The PLC can be optioned with Thermocouple hot side sensor for back feed control of pump. Example if stove temperature is below 100F the pump can be cycled on/off saving valuable power. The PLC also has a R-232 port for hooking up a computer for programming other functions. Future options include a automatic fire extinguisher which will discharge inert baking soda should a fire start in the top of your chimney. This feature will be a first of many features protecting you & your house against fires.
We have partnered with a extraordinary material physicist whom is working on cutting edge low cost high power devices optimized to provide the best in class ZT in the range of 100°C to 250°C which is the sweet spot for thermoelectric applications. We will also focus
on material that operated effectively in the under 100°C range, which is an area that has been neglected by others in the field.
A big component of so called Carbon Reducing Green Technology is how quickly the technology will begin to produce a net power benefit above the power it took to produce the generator . Basically, all green technologies either consume power or create a Carbon Footprint while being manufactured into a final product. The graph below shows several standard Green Technologies and the time it takes the power they produce to equal the power it took to actually manufacture them. If all Green Technologies were evaluated in this manner, Thermoelectric Generation would be the least carbon intensive of all green technologies!
The truth is that in 99% of the applications, fuel is already being consumed for other purposes such as providing heat, or work. Thermoelectric technology extends the life of that fuel and makes the consumption more energy efficient! Each of these processes have waste heat as a byproduct. We are just consuming the heat before it is lost to the atmosphere. TECTEG MFR. is working with McMaster University to validate our new technology. Commercialization is expected in the next two years. If we are successful Thermoelectric Seebeck Effect Power Generation technology could be widely implemented in everything from Furnaces, Cars, Trucks and Heavy Industry to name a few. We have set-up Thermoelectric Power Distributors in Pakistan, India, and Africa.
We are working with Jason Stewart “The Firemaster” and his clean burning wood stove invention in New Zealand. We are also working with Derald Cook owner of intensofuergo in Chile who also is working with our group to develop a turn key clean burning wood stove with thermoelectric power, RABBIT EARS Thermoelectric wood stove Generator 100W (expandable to 200W).
