Flexible Heat Pipes



Flexible Heat Pipes includes corrugated sections in the adiabatic regions for flexibility. Introduction of this section between the evaporator and condenser allows flexible movement between regions of heat input and heat output of the heat pipe. 

The concept of flexible heat pipes came into existence especially for the applications where space is a premium factor. Applications like Military, Aerospace and Avionics design uses flexible heat pipes to a greater extent. Flexible heat pipe heat sink assemblies usually allows the designers and thermal engineers increased flexibility to place heat-generating components in optimal locations to maximize serviceability and reliability while still overcoming harsh thermal and environmental conditions.
