Long Duration Exposure Facility: Transverse flat plate heat pipeThe Transverse Flat Plate Heat Pipe is a thermal control device that serves the dual function of temperature control and mounting base for electronic equipment. In it's ultimate application, the heat pipe would be a lightweight structural member that could be configured in a platform or enclosure, and provide temperature control for large space structures, flight experiments, and equipment. The purpose of this experiment is to evaluate the zero-G performance of several heat pipe modules. Performance assessment includes: (1) the systems heat transport capability; (2) temperature drop between evaporator and condensor; and (3) the ability to maintain temperature over varying duty cycles and environments.
