TECTEG MFR. is a specialty manufacturing company located in Aurora, Ontario, Canada. Our cooling division,Thermal Electronics Corp., has been in operation for 15 years and focuses on manufacturing peltier module based devices. We manufactured our first cooling based unit for 7- Eleven convenience stores in Alaska, USA back in 1993. Our experieince in the Thermoelectric space began almost 20 years ago.
TECTEG MFR. is presently partnering with scientists at McMaster University as well as several scientists outside the university setting with a combined thermoelectric experience of 70 years. We have developed a proprietary manufacturing technique used to produce high amp TEG power generation (GENCELL™) elements. Presently, we are using optimized Bismuth Telluride materiel to fabricate our (GENCELL™), but with minor modifications we will have the ability to use any of the many new material being developed by hundreds of physicist around the world.
Elements are in the 100 to 200 amperage range specifically designed for large thermoelectric power generation applications. Our present focus is to commercialize a Fully-Automated Manufacturing Process by building a small fabrication line which will have the capability to produce up to 10 MW of
(GENCELL™) per year. Our goal is to ramp up to a 100 MW (GENCELL™) production facility once we have perfected our manufacturing technique. Our (GENCELL™) devices will be designed to produce 100 watts of power based on a DT (Delta Temperature) of 150°C. To do this we require only 188 elements per 100 watts thermoelectric power generation of output based on our initial goal of a 6% conversion efficiency. The device electrical rating is 4V @ 25 AMP. This compares to over 3000 couples of the present design TEG's.

Once we have finalized our process we will work with both Zn4Sb3 and Mg2Si and Mn2Si, and possibly CMO. All 4 of these alloys work in the 200°C to 800°C range. With these materials we hope to develop segmented elements and or cascade cells which will increase efficiencies to approximately 9-10%. Since our process will be a fully automated pick and place, we expect to be the lowest cost producer worldwide.
Why Thermoelectric Power Generation?:
A big component of so called Carbon Reducing Technology is how quickly the technology will begin to produce a net power benefit. Basically, all green technologies either consume power or create a Carbon Footprint while being manufactured into a final product. The graph below shows several standard Green Technologies and the time it takes the power they produce to equal the power it took to manufacture them. If all Green Technologies were evaluated in this manner, Thermoelectric Generation would be the least carbon intensive of all green technologies!
It was obvious to us that Thermoelectric Power Generation (TEG) technology is by far the most competitive power neutral technology of all Green Technologies available. One might say that you need to burn fossil fuel to capture power and that adds to the ongoing power requirements?
The truth is that in 99% of the applications the fuel is already being consumed for other purposes. All we are doing is extending the life
of that fuel and making the consumption more efficient! As in most cases the fuel is providing heat, or work. Each of these processes have waste heat as a byproduct. We are just consuming the heat before it is lost to the atmosphere.
We are at present working with McMaster University to validate our
new technology. If we are successful this technology could be widely implemented in everything from Furnaces, Cars, Trucks and Heavy Industry to name a few.
