New Chilling Technology for our STM-12B Mercury System

Pinnacle Heat Pump

The engineering department at Apex has always had its eye on the potential of thermoelectric technology to be able to cool the gas for moisture removal. However, the development of such a chiller was postponed due to the lack of adequately durable and reliable thermoelectric modules (Peltier elements). After having discovered the advantages and capabilities of the Phononics heat modules, Apex was ready to introduce a new generation of gas chillers to the stack testing market. The Phononics thermoelectric modules are more robust, rugged, and power-efficient than any thermoelectric module previously available to the market.
