The application of heat at any point on the Heat-pipe surface, causes a liquid / vapour phase change inside which enables heat energy to be transmitted in the vapour phase with only a minimal temperature gradient. In terms of thermal conductivity, a Heat-pipe can exhibit a thermal performance which can exceed that of an equivalent sized component made from pure copper by over 1000 times.
Typically, Heat-pipes are produced in rod form with a circular cross section. CRS Engineering manufactures a large range of Heat-pipes, and these are available with external diameters ranging from 2 mm to over 50 mm. Alternatively, flattened section Heat-pipes are also available. Lengths can vary from only a few centimetres to possibly several metres in length.
