From its many years of experience, Cooler Master has perfected the designs and manufacturing of heat pipes for all kinds of applications. Whether for traditional CPU coolers, thin devices, or complex systems like tele-communication towers and new IoT innovations, our team of experienced thermal management engineers and technicians are specialized in providing customers with unique heat pipe designs and configurations that will not only meet their technical needs, but will also respect their budget restrictions and timeline.

While heat pipes alone are a common and cost-effective solution to properly handle thermal needs, Cooler Master pushes the limit of traditional heat pipes by providing a complete portfolio of proven and tested solutions that are second to none in the thermal industry.

WORKING PRINCIPAL OF A HEAT PIPE

The liquid phase of the actuating fluid evaporates into a gas at the endothermic end of the pipe, which instantaneously generates a local high pressure in the cavity, and drives the gaseous actuating fluid to flow to the exothermic end at high speed. The gaseous actuating fluid condenses back into a liquid state at the heat releasing end, and by a mix of gravity, capillary force and centrifugal force, flow back to the endothermic end, repeating the cycle.

DESIGN ASPECTS

Low internal pressure

During the heat pipe manufacturing process, the cavity is injected with a small amount of working fluid and the internal air is partially removed to lower the atmospheric pressure before the pipe is sealed. The evaporation point of the working fluid in the low-pressure environment is greatly reduced, resulting in a heat transfer coefficient of about 50 to 100 times that of pure aluminum.

Capillary structure

The capillary structure that is applied to the inner wall of the pipe comes in 3 different types.

HEAT PIPE ADVANTAGES

  • High heat transfer efficiency rate
  • Large amount of heat transfer, transferring more heat at a smaller temperature difference
  • Small size, light weight and compact structure
  • Cold and hot fluids are isolated from each other without leakage
  • Wide temperature range
  • Adjustable heat flux
  • Heat source is not limited
  • Working cycle without power consumption
