Abstract: Heat pipes are used in many applications as an effective means for transferring heat from a source to a sink. The basic heat pipe typically consists of a solid metal casing within which a working fluid is sealed inside at a given pressure. The latent heat transfer via the heat pipe’s working fluid allows it to carry a larger amount of heat energy than would normally be possible with an identically dimensioned solid metal rod. Water is often used as a working fluid due to its high heat of vaporization and suita… Show more

“…Tests conducted by Reilly and Catton [24] have shown IAS leaves wick-like hydrophilic deposits on copper surfaces during operation in a heat pipe device. Similar tests by Stubblebine et al [22] have indicated this behavior occurs when IAS is used as the working fluid in aluminum devices. These deposits can be found mainly in the evaporator section of thermosiphons and wicked heat pipes run with IAS as can be seen in the copper sintered wick in Fig.…”

“…The results indicate that pure water is an incompatible fluid for use with aluminum FHPs; while both IAS fluids demonstrated better compatibility with aluminum and lacked obvious signs of NCG generation. It should be noted that liquid was in contact with a large percentage of the aluminum surface compared to vapor as opposed to previous IAS lifetime tests in thermosiphons [22] and long term compatibility is recommended to be reassessed for grooved FHPs in lengthy experiments. In terms of performance, both IAS fluids demonstrated similar thermal resistance to a copper and water heat pipe.…”
