Heat pipe is the core heat transfer element in heat pipe waste heat recovery equipment.
Heat pipe technology first in 1944 by Americans in Leningrad (R - S - Gaugler) found, and to "heat transfer device" (heat Transter device) in the name of the patent, then for failing to show the practical significance, and not by the attention it deserves. Until the early 1960s, due to the development of the aerospace industry, is requested to provide efficient heat transfer components for aerospace vehicle, prompting Los -- of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory Grover (G - M - Grover) in 1964 and again found that the principle of the heat transfer device and named for heat pipe (heat pipe), first successfully application in aerospace technology, caused by the scholars of great interest and importance. Heat pipe technology in the last century seventy or eightys into china.
Heat pipe is a kind of heat transfer module with high thermal conductivity. It can transfer heat through evaporation and condensation of refrigerant in the vacuum tube. It has a high thermal conductivity, good isothermal heat, heat transfer area can be arbitrarily changed, can be long-distance heat transfer, can control temperature, etc.. Heat pipe heat pipe heat exchanger has the advantages of high heat transfer efficiency, compact structure, small fluid resistance loss, is conducive to the control of dew point corrosion, etc.. Has been widely used in metallurgy, chemical industry, oil refineries, boilers, ceramics, transportation, textile, machinery and other industries, as an energy-saving device for waste heat recovery, and in the process of energy utilization, and achieved remarkable economic benefits.
