Abstract

An integral heat pipe/evacuated tube solar collector was developed in which the inner receiver tubes form the evaporator sections of glass heat pipes. To form the heat pipes, condenser/heat exchangers were added to the open ends of evacuated tubes, thereby allowing transfer of the collected energy to the coolant flowing through the manifold enclosing the condensers.
