II-VI Marlows’ ability to provide both low-cost standard products and cost-efficient, customized products remains our industry advantage. As the leading supplier of custom thermoelectric coolers (TECs), Marlow has a concept-to-completion approach to design. This approach enables II-VI Marlow to span a variety of markets and applications, offering world-class support to the customer and capturing the optimum design to match their requirements.
Why is a custom, optimized design important?
According to basic theory, TEC coefficient of performance (COP) is a strong function of ∆T across the elements. In a real-world situation, with thermal resistances due to interfaces and heat exchangers, ∆T across the elements is a function of COP. Therefore, there is a compounding effect and a severe penalty for failure to optimize at the system level. II-VI Marlow's optimization process specifically addresses minimizing TEC power consumption by system-level analysis.
