Transferring Heat More Effectively with Thermal Heat Pipes

Equipment, cables and piping as found inside of a modern industrial power plant. Industrial zone, Steel pipelines, valves, cables and walkwaysJust as human beings need to cool down after extensive time in the heat or after an intensive workout or run, technology needs a method of cooling itself as well, otherwise, it will overheat and, ultimately, lead to malfunction or break down. In the wake of a booming technological surge, a trend has presented itself indicating a move toward smaller mechanisms that produce a much larger amount of power, and while this is convenient for many industries, it neglects to account for the space needed to cool a system. At Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX, we strive to produce quality thermal solutions such as custom heat pipes in order to address this issue in an efficient manner.

How a Heat Pipe Functions

Heat pipes are a passive, two-phase heat transfer solution that can be utilized for a variety of applications. As one of the most common thermal solutions, heat pipes can be designed to accommodate a number of setups, with a myriad of bends, angles, and dimensions to choose from. They can also come in a variety of forms, including bent, flat, embedded, and finned, making them versatile to address nearly any application.

A heat pipe utilizes phase-change transfer, meaning it involves a liquid to vapor phase change – also known as boiling to evaporation and condensation – of a working fluid. These accessories have an extremely effective and high thermal conductivity, ranging from 5,000 W/m•K to 200,000 W/m•K. Compared to traditional solid conductors like aluminum, graphite, copper, and diamond which have thermal conductivities ranging from 250 W/m•K to 1,500 W/m•K, Noren’s solutions produce a higher level of conductivity and thus, provide a simple solution to dispersing heat.

An Eco-Friendly Solution

Heat pipes transfer heat from the evaporator to the condenser, or heat sink, over a relatively long distance through the latent heat of vaporization of a working fluid. In other words, the distance utilized allows the thermal energy to move away from the source and provide cooling along the way. Because of the phase-change system utilized, it allows for no chemical waste or harm, making it an eco-friendly solution that does not severely impact the team around it.

Highly Customizable

Not only do heat pipes provide an eco-friendly manner of displacing heat, but they can be customized to address your specific needs. Our unique design process allows us to create these systems with a variety of bends, angles, and flatness. Our designs also provide a long lifespan with zero maintenance, making it one of the most efficient solutions out there.
