Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9700416A1] A capillary pumped heat transfer loop including an evaporator, a condenser and a tank for storing a heat transfer fluid, said evaporator being provided with a porous material for generating capillary pumping pressure within the loop. Said tank and said evaporator are mutually thermally insulated and interconnected via a channel that comprises a first portion consisting of a capillary connection for pumping the heat transfer fluid from the tank to the porous material, and a second portion for conveying gas bubbles and/or steam from the evaporator to the tank, said tank being arranged to be kept at a lower temperature than the evaporator.
