Heat Pipe Heat Pipe

Heat Pipes soldering

Copper/water heat pipes are made of copper, use water as a working fluid and typically operate in the temperature range of 20 to 150°C.Custom diameters can be manufactured per customer requirements. The planar heat pipes are also called vapor chambers which are used as heat spreaders.

Product Introduction

Heat pipes are a transport mechanism to move heat from the hot source to an area where the heat can be dissipated. Heat pipes do not actually dissipate the heat and are therefore incorporated into many different types of heat sinks as helpers. A heat pipe is a copper tube with an internal wick structure that is sealed on both ends with a small amount of water inside. As heat is applied to the pipe, the water will boil and turn to a gas, which then travels to the colder section of the heat pipe where it condenses back to a liquid. It is the evaporation and condensing of the water that forms a pumping action to move the water (and thus the heat) along the pipe.

Heat pipes come in round or flat shapes. Flat heat pipes are easier to attach to heat dissipating components while the round heat pipes offer advantages for certain fin configurations at the condenser end.
