- In order to increase the production rate of a mold used by the Bendix Corporation to manufacture plastic parts, a mold cooling system was designed to use air cooled finned heat pipes. The cooling system was designed to cool the mold from 425 to 150/sup 0/C (800 to 300/sup 0/F) at a rate of 28/sup 0/C (50/sup 0/F) per minute. Candidate heat pipes were built and tested using 1.91 cm OD steel tube with spiral wound, welded, and segmented fins and with Dowtherm A working fluid. The test data indicated that eight vertical heat pipes, each with a measured overall thermal conductance of 2.00 W//sup 0/C, when fitted into holes in the mold, could provide the 28/sup 0/C minute cooling needed.
