Loop Heat Pipe Technology

Mott’s sintered media pore structure provides unique wicking properties driven by capillary action of amorphous metal particles. For example, in loop heat pipe applications, a custom-designed interior can wick process water 360 degrees around the pipe to ensure uniform heat distribution is unimpeded by a buildup of fluid.

Loop heat pipes are heat exchangers used to passively transport thermal energy. They are often used in situations where conventional heat pipes would be ineffective, such as when there is a large temperature difference between the heat source and the heat sink. They are an efficient way to transport heat over long distances and can operate without a pump or other moving parts.

Our Design Capabilities

  • Diverse Hardware Options
  • Additive Manufacturing Capabilities

Mott’s 3d printed media pore structure provides unique wicking properties driven by the capillary action of amorphous metal particles. In loop heat pipe applications, a custom-designed interior can wick process fluid 360 degrees around the pipe to ensure uniform heat distribution is unimpeded by a buildup of fluid. The wicks for loop heat pipes can help to improve heat transfer and prevent clogging. The value of Mott’s 3D printed porous metal media lies in its ability to be customized to achieve the desired wicking performance for a given application.
