Home-made flexible heat pipes


    As a result we’ve got such strange thing. Test flexibility of the heat pipe. As we hoped, the pipe can be bent but with a little forcing, pressure cannot but give its effect. It even seemed to me that hinge brackets bent a little in spite of the fact that they were made of slab steel of 1.5 mm thickness…
Keep on modding according to the schedule. Dip the heat pipe into a glass with boiling water and ascertain normal operating. Everything was so good that we became bored and decided to sophisticate the construction!
    Strictly speaking, we decided to shape this flexible cooler up to make it appropriate for mounting into fanless computer. We decided and made so.
 


   Take two copper disk-shaped workpieces of 5 mm thickness. Saw chases by means of angle saw for better heat dissipation.

    Lap the heat dissipating surface of the copper workpieces with a lapping plate. You may lap the underside as well for appearance. It’s desirable to polish it but we didn’t do it.
Sort out two iron hemisphere of appropriate size.., I couldn’t find a good name for them at the time.., in a word, two housings or casings for heat exchangers.
 

casings for heat exchangers


   Drill holes in this steel casings; the holes diameter should be equal to the diameter of the future heat pipe. Scrape the metal with a file and solder safely the joint. Of course, one should use acid flux for such operation.

Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
