TCP50 Thermoelectric Cold-Plate

TAC60 Photo

Our popular TCP50 Cold-Plate has a four inch (100mm) square surface and takes less than 10 minutes to reach the freezing point, in a 70 °F ambient.

It's a compact, easy to use, reliable and affordable. With no refrigerants or gases, it's environmentally friendly.

TCP50 may be used for either cooling or warming. In an ambient temperature of 68 ºF (20 ºC), and no active load, the surface temperature will drop to about 5 degrees below freezing. Alternatively, the surface can safely be heated to 175 ºF (75 ºC).

For applications that require precise temperature control the TCP50 can be connected to a temperature controller, like the TLZ10.

TCP50 is used in a wide variety of laboratory, calibration, test - quality control, electro-optic/laser and research applications. Typical medical/biomedical applications include sample cooling or temperature stabilization, tissue preparation, histology, cold & hot dry wells and pain/nerve research.

While typically used on a laboratory or work table the TCP50 may be mounted in any orientation. Many customers have used multiple units to "sandwich" (or surround) an item requiring cooling from two or more sides such as a liquid heatsink or cylinder.

The cold-plate can be customized or fabricated for customer specific applications such as mounting sensors or optics packages. The plate is 6063 aluminum with a black anodized finish. Contact us for a machining quotation if you need ten or more TCP50s.
