VDI Heat Atlas · N5 Heat Pipes

Abstract

Heat transfer devices with a very high heat flux density at low temperature differences are typically based on closed two-phase (liquid–vapor) systems. The latent heat of vaporization of the fluid is transferred from the location of the evaporator near the heat source to the location of the condenser near the heat sink. Heat pipes are such heat transfer devices with the particularity that the liquid transport is caused by capillary forces.
