Development of a high performances heat pipe (HPHP) for space applications; Developpement d`un caloduc hautes performances (HPHP) pour applications spatiales

Abstract

This paper presents the research program for the development of a prototype of high performances heat pipe (HPHP) intended to be installed on the STENTOR telecommunication satellite. A trade-off study was performed and led to the selection of a reliable and simple concept with axial grooves, ammonia and a minimum heat transport capacity of 500 W.m. A first model with a 17 mm diameter, a 2.8 m length and a mass lower than 500 g/m has been manufactured and tested. First results indicate a 600 W.m heat transport capacity at 20 deg. C (horizontal position) and a 400 W.m capacity with a 5 mm tilt, and allow to validate this concept. (J.S.) 6 refs.
