Abstract:
The paper presents the results of various SABCA activities in the field of two-phase heat transport, being a critical review and analysis of existing capillary pumped loops, the identification of the needs of future capillary pumped two-phase thermal control systems, the development of capillary evaporators, which incorporates nickel porous structures, that can provide a pumping pressure up to 38000 Pa, and the solving of the problem of capillary pump cavitation.These activities have led towards the development of a reliable multi-evaporator/condenser capillary pumped loop, which is discussed in details.A test loop configuration is described. The presented results of various tests clearly prove the viability of the concept for future applications.Proposed flight demonstrations are presented.
