The thermoelectric effect is the conversion of temperature differences into electric voltage and the reverse, a thermoelectric module may be used to create heat or for cooling. Interesting, but that seems like a hard way to create electricity. It is indeed. However, there are applications where this is a very practical option, such as in space exploration and in military equipment.
Extensive research is continuing in this field to discover new and advanced materials with much of it generating extreme temperatures. Hot-presses, furnaces, Seebeck devices, and zone-melters are employed in this particular lab.
It was Frank H. Stowell & Son’s responsibility to make sure that this project was accomplished in a safe manner, and that upon completion, research could proceed without a hitch. The client was most appreciative that this occurred and that communications were excellent throughout the process.
