Diode Heat Pipe: Introduction
- Standard heat pipes transfer the heat equally in both directions; however, if the nominal condenser is hotter than the evaporator, the heat would flow in the reverse direction. A diode heat pipe is used to prevent heat flow in the reverse direction.
- Heat pipes are enhanced thermal energy transporters that utilize evaporator and condenser in place of a solid conductor. These possess an extremely effective high thermal conductivity. Diode heat pipes transfer heat from the source (evaporator) to the heat sink (condenser) over long distance via latent heat of vaporization of a working fluid.
- Rise in demand for diode heat pipes from aerospace, consumer electronics, and telecommunication industries is fuelling the market
Rising Demand from Aerospace Industry
- Based on application, the aerospace segment of the global diode heat pipe market is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to an increase in use of diode heat pipes in the aerospace industry for the last few decades, as they operate in extremely harsh environments where peak performance and reliability are important to safety
- Diode heat pipes typically possess high thermal conduction in one direction and a low thermal conduction in the opposite direction. Hence, they are extensively utilized for aerospace applications where the possibility for heat sink temperatures to exceed the heat pipe evaporator temperature due to solar radiation is high. Generally, an array of diode heat pipes are combined together to dissipate heat to several alternative heat sinks. Therefore, heat sink facilities are constantly maintained.
- Diode heat pipes are an essential component of spacecraft cooling and temperature stabilization, owing to their low weight penalty, zero maintenance, and high reliability
- Rise in adoption of diode heat pipes for satellite applications to offer maintenance-free thermal management solutions and to maintain optimal operating temperatures for onboard electronics is further propelling the market. These pipes reliably move and radiate heat to ensure long life of satellite systems.
