Heat pipes have been used for spacecraft thermal control for decades; however, the technology is continuously evolving. Heat Pipes are often selected due to their combination of thermal performance, low mass, and high reliability. This webinar will explore several variants including ammonia Constant Conductance Heat Pipes (CCHPs), Variable Conductance Heat Pipes (VCHPs), Loop Heat Pipes (LHPs) and Space Copper-Water Heat Pipes (SCWHPs). Each technology option provides a unique benefit for the spacecraft architecture.
This webinar will dive into details to help aerospace engineers select and apply the appropriate technology- exploring considerations such as including heat flux, transport distances, geometry and mass. Our subject experts will also be available after the webinar for specific questions on your application.
