Abstract:

A program was conducted for the development, fabrication and test of a heat pipe radiator for cooling a 30 kilowatt microwave klystron. A design concept was generated which employs twelve heat pipes in radial array to extract heat from the klystron collector. Detailed calculations were performed for the design of the individual heat pipes and the heat pipe to air heat exchanger. A one sixth size model was constructed and tested to evaluate the engineering design. Author
