If you think thermoelectric technology has reached its limits, think again. Our patented distributed transport properties (DTP) approach to thermoelectric systems delivers dramatic increases in heating and cooling efficiency and capacity. These advances make DTP's solid-state thermal management an efficient, sustainable, high-performance, cost-effective solution for many thermal management applications.
DTP Versus Conventional Thermoelectrics
Conventional thermoelectric systems can already cool, heat or generate power—just not as well as our patented DTP thermoelectric technology. DTP stands for distributed transport properties, which describes functionally graded materials whose key thermoelectric properties vary spatially through the material. Thermoelectric systems based on DTP materials show significant gains in cooling and heating capacity and efficiency, opening up new possibilities for solid-state thermal management in electric vehicles, cold chain logistics, medical devices and many more applications.Learn more about DTP technology
With its superior cooling capacity, wide temperature differential and high COP, DTP technology delivers thermal management improvements to both internal combustion and electric vehicles.
DTP technology is ideal for medical applications that require precise thermal management—from cryosurgery to microfluidics. Due to its higher temperature differential, COP and efficiency, it also lends itself to therapeutic techniques requiring patient-specific heating or cooling.
By operating at a higher efficiency and COP compared to conventional TE, DTP technology achieves proper temperatures for vaccine transportation and delivery without the use of multi-stage cascade devices.
Beyond just passenger vehicles, the benefits of DTP technology extend to any vehicle that utilizes electric propulsion—including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROV).
DTP technology is a natural fit for Smart Buildings that will increasingly rely on on-demand thermal management systems and is emerging as an efficient, sustainable alternative or supplement to conventional HVAC systems.
By operating at a higher COP, DTP technology is a perfect fit for the electronics industry, eliminating the need for bulky or costly thermal management components like fins and heatsinks.
