Abstract

This paper reports development of an experimental small LHP with PTFE wick. PTFE porous materials with 0.8 - 2.2 μm pore radius were fabricated and the basic properties were evaluated. An experimental small LHP with the PTFE wicks was designed and tested in an atmospheric condition. A PTFE wick with 1.2 μm pore radius was used to demonstrate the loop performance. The test results showed excellent operating characteristics of the LHP.
