    pot...

    I'm going to be getting a peltier unit soon. Can someone tell me how, or send me a site on how to pot the pelt unit? (seal it against moisture). Thanks.

    ah .... sorry, I don't think I can help you out much then ... but when I bought the Tom Leufkin's peltier kit before, it was not potted and the instructions recommended black silicon based caulking ... I dunno how well it works cuz since then I have only ordered potted peltiers.

    I've got some silicon sealant stuff called Silicon 2 that I used to glue a fountain back together (don't ask...). I'll probably just go around the edges with that. I don't know if I'm really going to use it or not. Something fun to play with though. Maybe I'll use it to keep my coke cold.

    if you run a sealed unit (sides of the peltiers encased in closed cell foam, sealed with thermal epoxy) then you don't need potted peltiers... you only need them if you anticipate moisture getting near the elements

    Get high temp, silicone sealant, like the stuff used on car engines. And make sure the whole thing is cleaned out good.... then seal it around the outside.
