Parabolic flight experiment for graphene LHP evaporator characterization
Loop Heat Pipes (LHP) are passive heat transfer devices used in thermal control of spacecraft equipment and instruments.Graphene, deposited on the porous structure known as capillary pump has shown to be a suitable mean to increase the LHPoperation stability and startup reliability.Test in vacuum have been complemented, late in 2017, by a microgravity experimental campaign, with more than 30minutes data collected in zero-g conditions. The paper describes the experimental set up to characterize the LHP evaporatorperformance.
