Abstract:

A performance test is presented of a feasibility model 6,000-Btuhr, air-cooled, thermoelectric air conditioner T. E. A. C.. The purpose of the test was to determine the performance of the air conditioner under various conditions and to reveal any new factors which should be investi gated in a further study of thermoelectric air conditioning. The air conditioner is an air-to air, thermoelectric prototype designed to produce approximately 6,000 Btuhr of sensible cooling at 110 F ambient with cold air entering at 90 F. The air conditioner is shaped so that it can be mounted flush within a wall. Eight Rotron 341 QS fans circulate the hot air and twelve Rotron 35 QA fans circulate the cold air. The height of the air conditioner is 34-34 in., its width is 23-18 in., the overall thickness is 11-78 in., and the thickness without the fan housings is 3-34 in. The total volume is 2.4 ft and the weight is 85 lb. Author
