WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GMZ Energy, a market leader in the development of high temperature thermoelectric generation (“TEG”) solutions, today announced the TG16-1.0, a new thermoelectric module capable of producing twice the power of the company’s first product, the TG8. By doubling the power density, GMZ’s new module substantially increases performance while maintaining a minimal footprint.
The highly efficient TG16-1.0 directly converts waste heat into usable electricity and is well suited for extremely high temperature environments, such as those in boilers and furnaces. The module’s high thermal power capability enables safe operation and long-term reliability in temperature streams above 1000 degrees Celsius. Customers will the find the TG16-1.0 ideal for combined heat and power applications where the module is directly exposed to combustion flows.
Cheryl A. Diuguid, CEO of GMZ Energy, said: “With this new, high-power module, GMZ continues to push the boundaries of thermoelectric technology through the development of industry-leading products. We look forward to using this breakthrough product to help our customers reach a new level of efficiency and reduce costs.”
Now, with two product offerings, GMZ is capable of providing a solution to even more OEM partners around the world. This new module will augment the TG8 module, broadening the product line and enabling dramatic efficiency improvements and new functionalities in products requiring high power density. The TG16-1.0 is currently available for sampling to qualified OEM manufacturers.
