The Thermacouple™ Earth Energy System — “The Earth’s Most Economical, Efficient, and Environmentally-Safe Geothermal Ground Loop Construction Technology”
Kelix Heat Transfer Systems, LLC is leading the geothermal heat pump industry in the direction of technological progress, with its revolutionary high-performance ground loop system — the Thermacouple™ Earth Energy System.
Installed in a vertical borehole, the Thermacouple™ System provides a new “closed-type” of ground loop for any conventional geothermal heat pump (GHP) to which it is connected. The patent-protected Thermacouple™ System employs an aqueous-based heat transfer fluid that is contained and circulated within a sealed underground coaxial-flow tube assembly, to efficiency and safely transfer thermal energy between the geothermal heat pump unit and the Earth’s crust, all year round, in a highly economical manner. The Thermacouple™ System has been designed using advanced computational fluid dynamic (CFD) and solid modeling techniques, and is manufactured using 100% environmentally-friendly materials. These innovative features make Thermacouple™ the very best ground loop construction technology available, to mechanical and industrial engineers, and geothermal professionals, committed to designing and constructing high-performance geothermal heat pump systems based on time-honored principles of economy, efficiency and efficacy.
The Thermacouple™ System is sold as a ground loop construction kit, and is easily installed in a 300 foot deep, six inch diameter vertical borehole. A single Thermacouple™ System installation provides a heat exchanging capacity sufficient for any ground source heat pump, having up to 5 tons heat transfer capacity. Using the Thermacouple™ System, ground loop design now becomes very simple, allowing multiple Thermacouple™ Systems to be installed in 300 foot boreholes, spaced 20 feet apart, and connected together with conventional piping below the frostline, to meet the heat transfer requirements of any size ground source heat pump project.

|By virtue of its patent-protected design, the Thermacouple™ System has a high-performance heat transfer capacity that (i) significantly increases the operating efficiency of any ground source heat pump to which it is connected, and (ii) dramatically reduces the cost of borehole drilling during ground loop construction, making ground source heat pump systems affordable to millions of home owners, for the first time ever.|
|The Thermacouple™ System is available now, and is shipping to residential and commercial sites around the world.|
The Thermacouple™ System is helping American home owners, businesses and industries use the Earth’s renewable thermal-energy resources to meet the thermal energy demands of their buildings, while reducing heating and cooling bills by at least 50%. Also, it is helping our Nation to aggressively expand the ground source heat pump industry, create thousands of “green jobs”, and achieve our Nation’s energy conservation, efficiency, sustainability, and security objectives.
