Abstract: The heat pipes are widely uses in many applications specially for cooling of electronic part industry and heat transfer industry. The need to study the capacity of heat pipe which changes according to applications and for better identification of the heat pipe for special application. Here we study the unlike heat pipes using dissimilar diameter, wire mesh layer and adiabatic section for diverse application of heat pipe. The heat pipe identified for use in special application with respect to its capability and limitation of heat pipe. Some heat pipe results in use for high capacity, low and high inclination, also according to limitations of heat pipe such as capillary limit, entrainment limit. The result detect the double wrapped screen wire mesh affords better result for each pipe diameter and adiabatic section. Also some modify in size of heat pipe diameter and adiabatic section have better than other heat pipe as changes observed in capillary limit and entrainment limit.
Keyword: Heat pipe, Capillary limit, Entrainment limit, Wrapped screen mesh, Adiabatic section.

Scope of the Article: Software Engineering Case Study and Experience Reports
