P14254: Underwater Thermoelectric Power Generation/public/WikiPages/MSD2/
- screw studs into heat sink
- place thermocouple in groove
- place thermoelectrics on heat sink
- place heat spreader on thermoelectrics
- insert thermocouple into heat spreader
- set up insulation
- insert cartridge heater
- use fine wire to hold insulation in place
- place thermocouple on top of insulation
- while holding the thermocouple from step 9, slide the clamping plate onto the studs
- add washers in correct stack up (shown in "Washer Stackup")
- finger tighten clamping nuts
- torque nuts in sequence (shown in "Torque Sequence") to 5 in-lbf
- place gasket on heatsink. use screws to hold in place
- attach a thermocouple to ch4 and place against the side of the enclosure
- line the enclosure with fiberglass insulation
COVER ON LID
- align thermocouple and electrical connections before attempting to put lid on
- holding cover above the base at an angle, attach the three thermocouple connections and the electrical connection on the cover to the respective connections on the base.
- place fiberglass insulation over the top corner of the clamping plate to ensure it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t melt the power cables on the cover.
- lower the cover onto the gasket, ensuring that no insulation or wiring is trapped between the cover and the base.
- screw the cover to the base using the countersunk screws until snug.
- Torque the screws down as tight as possible using the same torqueing sequence as used for the clamping plate.
- screw legs to base with a gasket in between. The gasket helps prevent corrosion between the base and the legs.
- Note that the legs should be flush with the base of the fins.
