The Thermagy heat panel and Thermagy heat module are the first configurations of the Thermagy concept. This basic configuration is based upon a flat panel shape with radiation as the hot side heat source and water cooling as the cold side heat sink.
The Thermagy poducts (panels, modules and test-probes) work stand-alone but can also be used to:
A Thermagy heat panel is a 200x300 mm Thermo Electric Generator device (TEG), to be positioned above and exposed to a radiation heat source. A Thermagy heat panel is equipped with integrated water cooling and electrical connections. A Thermagy system is built by putting heat panels in an array according to the required system geometry. Once mounted the panels have to be connected to the electrical and water/steam infrastructure. At system level, an electrical inverter can be added to convert DC to AC.
The Thermagy heat module is the 100x40mm building block for the Thermagy heat panel, however suitable for small surface applications or testing purposes. Think of powering sensors to measure high heat processes or application in test-probes as described below.
RGS offers fully equipped test probes to facilitate trials in specific test locations in industrial production lines, both at module and at panel level. These probes can be used to validate actual heatflows and temperatures at certain process locations, in order to prepare for the engineering of a demonstration or a pilot project.
With our heat panel technology, we recently put together a probe to test our Thermagy heat recovery technology in a furnace wall inspection hole.
The test-probe fits the exact dimensions of the inspection hole.The TEG module is protected from the enourmous heat as well as the contagious gasses and dust by several shields. This test-probe will be used in a pilot for the Dutch Glass Industry Organisation in which we test Thermagy in different glass factories.
