USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:
Kit with MHP equipment consisting of:
- Block MHP
- MHP memory map (in cover)
The equipment consists of a single unit, which accommodates two heat pipes and a data acquisition system. Distilled water in amount of 50 and 60 ml is used as a coolant.
Each miniature heat pipe is divided in length to three different parts: an evaporator (20 mm), an adiabatic section (50 mm) and a capacitor (30 mm).
To study the processes of fluid
dynamics in microgravity conditions.
- Tests of functioning of small-size heat pipes filled with distilled water.
- Assessment of the coolant efficiency.
Information on miniature heat pipe operation recorded
on the memory map.
