  • Publication number: 20190242636
    Abstract: Provided is a transport device which can perform easily thermal storage temperature controlling treatment of the thermal storage material even at a cell transport destination. The transport device of the present invention includes: a thermally insulated container that has a cylindrical shape and a bottom, a thermal storage material disposed along the inner circumferential surface of the thermally insulated container, and a temperature control unit that is detachably fitted on the thermally insulated container and is for performing thermal storage temperature controlling treatment on the thermal storage material, wherein the temperature controlling unit comprises a heat transferring body for performing the thermal storage temperature control processing on the thermal storage material when the unit is fitted on the thermally insulated container, and a storage space formed inside the heat-transferring body for storing a stored object so that the object can be freely put in and taken out.

  • Patent number: 6172294
    Abstract: A thermoelectric semiconductor is formed of a sintered semiconductor layer and metal layers arranged on sides of opposite end faces of the sintered semiconductor layer. These metal layers are to inhibit a reaction between the sintered semiconductor layer and solder layers through which electrodes are joined to the sintered semiconductor layer. The sintered semiconductor layer and the metal layers have been obtained beforehand by integrally sintering a semiconductor powder layer and metal sheets arranged on sides of opposite end faces of the semiconductor powder layer.

  • Patent number: 5959341
    Abstract: A thermoelectric semiconductor is formed of a sintered semiconductor layer nd metal layers arranged on sides of opposite end faces of the sintered semiconductor layer. These metal layers are to inhibit a reaction between the sintered semiconductor layer and older layers through which electrodes are joined to the sintered semiconductor layer. The sintered semiconductor layer and the metal layers have been obtained beforehand by integrally sintering a semiconductor powder layer and metal sheets arranged on sides of opposite end faces of the semiconductor powder layer.

  • Patent number: 5845497
    Abstract: An electric refrigerator is provided with a casing formed of a heat-insulating layer and defining an opening; a heat-insulating door for openably closing the opening of the casing; a thermal conductor arranged in the casing and provided with a heat-conducting surface located opposite an interior space in the casing; a Peltier device thermally connected with the thermal conductor; and a device power supply for feeding electric power to the Peltier device. The electric refrigerator is also provided with a control unit for controlling the device power supply so that, after the heat-insulating door is closed subsequent to opening thereof, the device power supply supplies the Peltier device with electric power controlled in a range of from 1.3 to 2 times as much rated electric power required to maintain a preset interior temperature of the casing.
