SPC Heat Pipes
With the ability to transfer heat several thousand times faster than a copper rod, it is no wonder that heat pipes are the most effective way to transfer heat.
We supply two types of heat pipes; heat pipes for heat recovery and heat pipes for dehumidification. Energy-efficient thermal superconductors with no moving parts, our heat pipes are able to easily transfer heat energy across small temperate gradients. Whilst we usually charge the pipes with refrigerants such as R134A, we now also offer water as an alternative in our latest heat pipe models.
Heat pipes for heat recovery
Wherever air is mechanically supplied and removed there’s an opportunity to install an energy-saving heat pipe. Heat energy in waste air is valuable and with a heat pipe, you can recover most of it for free.
The principle is simple: the heat pipe extracts the heat from the waste air stream and adds it to the incoming stream instead. The effectiveness of this process can be as high as 75 percent with minimal set-up and running costs. These heat pipes are often used in public buildings such as educational establishments, hospitals,swimming pools and supermarkets.
Heat pipes for dehumidification
These wrap-around heat pipes enhance the performance of dehumidifiers and improve the quality of the air when applied to HVAC. They can also double the amount of moisture removed by an air conditioner’s cooling coil depending on the conditions of the environment.
Heat pipes are available in two options:
- Water heat pipes – available at commercial prices, these heat pipes use water rather than refrigerant as their working fluid
- Refrigerant heat pipes – a popular choice that has been used for many years, these pipes provide significant energy saving benefits.
