The QC-SORT-HP-EX experiment kit from QUICK-OHM clearly demonstrates the effect and enormous advantage of heat pipes in terms of heat conduction. While with the massive aluminum and copper rods there is only a slight delay at the end opposite the heat source, copper warms up faster than aluminum, in a matter of seconds the heat pipe reaches almost the same temperature as that found on the side of the heat source is. The instructions for use also provide the physical explanations for this experiment.
The kit contains the following parts:
1 pcs. Heatpipe, ø 6mm, 300mm long, with cooling fin 1 pcs. Aluminium rod, ø 6mm, 300mm long 1 pcs. Copper rod, ø 6mm, 300mm long 1 pcs. Heat Transfer interface
