It is thought that a two phase thermosyphon may be used to remove geothermal energy from a geothermal aquifer to supply energy at a rate of the order of 10 kW to a small scale user, such as a domestic dwelling.
In this project a two phase thermosyphon, approximately 8m long, was constructed and tested in order to examine design procedures and to find optimum operating conditions.
The thermosyphon consisted of a 0. Two working fluids, water and hexane, were tested and a 60 mesh stainless steel wick was also used in the evaporator.

These results compare well with the predicted values found using a calculation procedure presented by Engineering Services Data Unit, Item No. The use of accurate operating conditions when predicting the thermosyphon performance was found to be essential.
The use of a simple wick in the evaporator was found to hinder heat transfer. The limiting factor is thought to be the occurrence of film boiling in the evaporator.
