The cooler which creates heat flux between a junction of any two different materials is called a thermo electric cooler.The electric camping cooler which are used for camping purpose are for this purpose only which has a heating pump which is in a solid state and the heat transfers from one side of the device to other by the help of electricity which also depends on the direction of current flow.
The technology is called as Peatier effect in the electric cooler for camping in which the device has twin sides in which electricity will flow inside the device from which the heat come from one side and other side gets cooler while one side gets hotter.Normally in the electric camping cooler the hot side is placed with heat sink to keep the entire device in the ambient temperature while the colder side is at the room temperature. In special options like camping cooler multiple coolers are cascaded to maintain the lower temperature. This entire process has involvement of the three major thermometric effects.
Thermo electric coolers which are mostly used for heat removal application which there is involvement of several thousands of milliwatts and watts. The size varies as per the requirement of the instrument like it can be made as small as cooler for cooling beverage or can be made to cool down a submarine or railway cars. The life time of this instruments is very much limited.
Products for consumers:
The thermo electric coolers are used as coolers for camping, cooling components made of electricity some times larger equipment’s,sometimes used for portable mobile cooler purposes.Sometimes these instruments are also used as dehumidifiers. During camping or in car it can be used in closed area which can help the user to keep at least twenty degrees below the temperature outside during a sunny day.
Benefits of the thermo coolers:
No movable equipment’s are required for movement no mechanical wear and failure instants are less in the coolers no mechanical vibrations and fatigue due to vibrations are lesser in the coolers. Life spans are good as the cooler are less in the maintenance.The advancement of technology has added that heat may be incremented or decremented by accurate control of the amount of electrical intake.The thermo cooler are used instead of the refrigerators which becomes more cost effective and environmentally friendly as the refrigerators show significant impact on the environment.
The thermo cooler are cost effective less maintenance and no mechanical wear and tear operational instruments as they are handy and environmentally friendly. They can be carried anywhere everywhere very easily for trekking,mountaineering’s and outside picnics.
