Mainpower is a new approach to transform heat directly into electric power.

In heat loaded processes as in foundries or steelworks installations and products are cooled down with water circuits. These installations are mainly furnaces, casting installations, rolling mills and products during solidifications and cooling down. With an integral TEG-modul, the heat energy is transformed directly into electrical energy. The TEG-moduls are loaded on the hot side directliy with hot water, gas or through radiation. Existing TEG-moduls are used in serial and parallel order to generate electrical power.
