PELTIER HEAT PUMP

High tech comes to Am Sci & Surp!! It is here in the form of a Peltier junction, a thermo-electric device that translates electric power into heat, and perversely, into cool. Apply current at 15VDC to the gizmos and they extract thermal energy from one face, thereby cooling it. The heat is dumped onto the other face, thereby heating it. Please note: you must use a heat sink on the hot side or the junction will fry itself, since it can quickly create a 65° C temperature differential in a no load situation. Stack two, or build a cascade to increase the thermal differential created. Or run it backwards. Apply heat or cold to the relevant face and produce a current. Amazing for science projects and experiments. Practical for coffee warmers, beer coolers and mini-refrigerator or warming oven applications. They come with a datasheet. Large is 1-9/16" sq. x 3/16" thick and draws 6A and small is 1-1/4" sq. x 3/16" thick and draws 3A.

Turn It Off Before It Melts!

From Therm-O-Disc, this thermal cut-off switch is N/C (normally closed) by definition. (Thermal cut-offs are what keep your coffeepot from burning your house down.) This one shuts down between 221°F (105°C) and 248°F (120°C) and measures 5/8" dia x 9/16" thick, with (2) axial terminals.

Heating Element

To heat what is anybody's guess, but it's a U-shaped heating element, 8-3/8" x 2-5/8" x 1/4" dia with a 107 Ohm Resistance and rubber grommets above the 3/16" wide power terminals. When CJ heated it up to 120F, those grommets got gooey, so he says use lower voltage DC.

Feel The Heat

It's a nonpolarized bimetal heat sensor, 1/2" long with rubber sleeves and 6" long leads. It's also mysterious, because when used as a thermocouple multimeter input, it reads approx 94° in nearly boiling water but approx 170° in ambient air. Wethinks some sort of inversion or scaling is going on, but a person with your smarts will surely figure it out.

Thermistor On A Lead

This dipped, nominally 10K Ohm thermistor is on a heatshrunk and tubed 27” lead with a 6mm 2-pin Molex connector. Resistance drops as heat increases (NTC). Comes encased in a 1” x 1-1/8” plastic housing with a clip. AC takeout.
