Heat Pipe Performance Calculator


Boyd’s Heat Pipe Performance Calculator helps you estimate the maximum heat transferred in your specific copper-water heat pipe application. The calculator determines what power it can carry at each temperature for the given heat pipe geometry.

  • Input your overall heat pipe length and lengths devoted to the evaporator (heat collection) and condenser (heat rejection)
  • Input operating conditions including the operating power (input heat), orientation (heat pipe angle), and operating temperature (ambient temperature)
  • Then select a heat pipe diameter from our common diameters
