Performance of naphthalene thermosyphons with non-condensable gases – Theoretical study and comparison with data
Abstract Naphthalene thermosyphons are efficient heat transfer devices that operate within 250 and 400 °C. There is a lack of literature about naphthalene thermosyphons, especially with the presenceExpand

HEAT TRANSFER LIMIT DUE TO PRESSURE DROP OF A TWO-PHASE LOOP THERMOSYPHON
This work presents theoretical and experimental studies on the heat transfer limit due to pressure drop of two-phase loop thermosyphons. This limit is reached when the condensate return level reachesExpand
