Loop Heat Pipe

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.
