A point is reached when temperature difference exceeds the esdk of superheat sustainable in relation to nucleate boiling conditions. The temperature of the vapor corresponds to the vapor pressure, and any temperature variation throughout the system is related directly to vapor pressure drop.
Thermophysical properties of heat pipe working fluids: The maximum heat transfer under this condition is given by.
The maximum heat flux as given in ESDU The maximum overall rate of heat transfer depends on the overall temperature difference and the sum of the thermal resistances of the various solid, liquid and vaporous ezdu and interfaces involved. The wick is designed to provide a capillary pumping action, as described below. The recommended maximum rate of heat transfer, to avoid choked flow conditions i.
Some features of this site may not work without it. Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A ESDU is one of a group of five on heat pipe performance. In this project a two phase thermosyphon, approximately 8m long, was constructed and tested in order to examine design procedures and to find optimum operating conditions.
IHS ESDU Heat pipes – performance of two-phase closed thermosyphons.
It is further possible to control the temperature of operation of the pipe by introducing a controlled pressure of inert gas, such as helium or argon. Dunn and Reay give the following impirical equation for the degree of superheat in a wick structure:.
Entrainment will cause a starvation of fluid flow from the condenser and eventual ” dry out ” of the evaporator.
Amendment C01 Nov Published in Release The temperature drop across the wick structure in the evaporator region increases with evaporator heat flux. The choice of working fluid must be such that the heat pipe is operated at a temperature well beyond the viscous limit, even at start up. The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers.
At a temperature above the vapor pressure limit, the vapor velocity can be comparable with sonic velocity and the vapor flow becomes “choked”.

Advice and expressions are also given for the limits of vapour pressure, sonic velocity in the vapour, dry-out, boiling limit, and the counter-current flow limit. Additional Engineering References Bruhn: International Standard Atmosphere TM The choice of working fluid very much depends on the thermophysical properties eadu the fluid 80138 well as the mode of operation of the device. The heat pipe is a development of the thermosyphonin which there is no wick structure and liquid is returned to the evaporator by gravity.
The prediction of limits to heat transfer was not accurate and more work is needed in this area. The thermosyphon differs from the heat pipe, in having no wick structure.

The driving pressure for liquid circulation within the heat pipe is given by the capillary force established within the wick structure, namely:. Nucleation sites, at which bubbles first form, are provided by scratches or rough surfaces and by the release of absorbed gas. A preliminary investigation into the geothermal application of long heat pipes.
Work at Ssdu lead to the use of the porous element heater for such applications as a fast response vapor diffusion vacuum pump, jointly developed with AERE Harwell and Edwards High Vacuum Ltd. Equations relating to the various limits of performance of a two-phase closed thermosyphon are given in ESDU data sheet The use of a buffer gas to control vapor pressure and hence vapor temperature is seen to be a very effective method of temperature control. Two working fluids, water and hexane, were tested and a 60 mesh stainless steel wick was also used in the evaporator.
Original document, issued 01 Nov Published in Release In selecting the working fluid for a heat pipe or thermosyphon it is necessary to ensure that the device operates within the above defined limits.
