Pasadena-based Thermoelectric Company Secures Patent for First-of-Its Kind Cooling System

Published on Thursday, October 27, 2022 | 1:53 am

DTP Thermoelectrics, a Pasadena company working to create next-gen thermoelectric systems with applications in internal combustion systems, electric vehicles, and HVAC systems, among others, has secured a patent for its first-of-a-kind system.

Through sample tests, the company has demonstrated their new devices’ capability to cool to lower temperatures, improving performance and functionality in these systems.

“Until now, these capabilities were only possible using much larger and heavier mechanical cooling systems,” a company press release said.

The company said their technology can be used in a wide variety of systems and will help significantly improve cooling performance and cost effectiveness in LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), infrared sensors, electronics, cold chain storage, medical devices, battery thermal management and vision systems.

“There is no better performing thermoelectric material system than what we have fabricated with our DTP technology,” Dr. Lon E. Bell, DTP Thermoelectrics President and CEO, said. “This mass-producible, proprietary technology increases cooling capacity at efficiencies greater than what is possible with other thermoelectric devices.”

Compared to conventional thermoelectric (TE) material, DTP Thermoelectrics uses its patended Distributed Transport Properties (DTP) thermoelectric technology, which the company said delivers efficiency improvements up to 140 percent and capacity improvements up to 200 percent.

“These benefits make DTP a superior thermal management choice for many applications and industries – including automotive, cold chain logistics, medical, electrical propulsion, smart buildings and electronics,” the statement said.
