Title: Cocurrent loop thermosyphon heat transfer system for sub-ambient evaporative cooling and cool storage

Abstract

Provided is a cocurrent loop thermosyphon system and method for operation thereof. The system includes a first rising tube having first and second ends; a condenser having first and second ends, with the first end connected to the second end of the first rising tube; a return tube having a first end connected to the second end of the condenser; a second rising tube having a first end connected to a second end of the return tube; a pump that pumps liquid within the second rising tube; and an evaporator having a first end connected to the second end of the second rising tube. The second end of the evaporator outputs vapor created by a change in state of the liquid to the first end of the first rising tube.
