Heat pipe utilizes evaporative cooling to transfer thermal energy one point to another by the evaporation and condensation of a working fluid or coolant.

Inside the pipe, which is constructed of a material with high thermal conductivity, there is a small amount of coolant. This fluid is chosen specifically to match the operating temperature of the application with which it is being used. The coolant close to the hot interface will evaporate and naturally travel towards the colder interface. As it arrives in the colder area the vapor condenses back to a liquid. The liquid is then returned to the hotter side to begin the process all over again. This process also tends to equalize the temperature along the length of the tube.

Cincinnati Heat Exchangers, Inc. engineers will take into account several important factors when designing a heat pipe to best fit your application. Operating temperatures, pipe material, proper coolant fluid are all critical to the efficiency of your heat pipe.

Just tell us the required parameters of your project and then sit back and know that you are getting a custom design that will fit your applications... perfectly.
