Heat recovery technology has received a lot of attention in recent years. The technology takes advantage of thermal energies ejected from many situations such as an incinerator and automobile engine room, etc. and recovers them as regenerated energies. Among the technologies, the generator technology in thermoelectric materials does not have drive sections when converting thermal energies into electricity, which therefore leads to growing demand for such technology as maintenance-free and clean technology.
ULVAC-RIKO, Inc. has been selling the material evaluation system in thermoelectric generation development. The Mini-PEM makes materials small-modularized, gives temperature difference to the module, and then recovers maximum power generation amount and heat flow. Using a result of the evaluation, the system is also capable of calculating and evaluating the conversion efficiency.
The system can evaluate small modules with 10 mm x 10 mm or less, module with a pair of thermoelectric materials and thermoelectric material alone. Due to this, it can do a performance evaluation with small modules during development process from material evaluation to practical use before considering making a thermoelectric module, which will be actually used. Accordingly we think it can evaluate not only modules but joint technology as well.
- Capable of evaluating maximum power generation amount and heat flow when giving temperature difference to small modules.
- Capable of evaluating the conversion efficiency from power generation amount and heat flow at each temperature spot.
- Capable of evaluating with small samples such as a pair module and thermoelectric material alone.
- With a heater embedded, temperature variable up to 500 deg C on high temperature side.
- Cooling by cooling water flow on low temperature side.
- Capable of evaluating a module with up to 10 mm x 10 mm.
- Temperature range on high temperature part: 50 deg C to 500 deg C
- Atmosphere: In vacuum
- Sample size: 2 to 10 mm (square) x 1 to 20* mm (height) *maximum
- Heater on high temperature part: Sheath heater
- Contact area dimension of high temperature block: 10 mm (square)
- Fluid flow on low temperature part: Liquid
- Evaluation of module conversion efficiency calculated from maximum power generation and heat flow.
- Evaluation of power generation amount and heat flow with thermoelectric material alone.
- Performance and lifetime evaluation of thermoelectric module.
Sales plan in 2014
- Total quantity: 10 systems (domestic and overseas)
- Domestic price: JPY 9,800,000- (standard set/not including tax)
We are introducing the product at ULVAC Technologies, Inc. booth of "ICT2014 (International Conference on Thermoelectrics)" held in USA from July 6 to 10, 2014. Also, we plan to exhibit it in domestic exhibition in autumn this year. For further information on the exhibition, we will update in our website.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
