Title (EN) TRANSFER OF HEAT WITHIN WATER STORAGE TANK BY THE USE OF HEAT PIPES
(FR) TRANSFERT D'ENERGIE THERMIQUE A L'INTERIEUR D'UN RESERVOIR D'EAU GRACE A L'UTILISATION DE CALODUCS
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for heating fluids in which hot water (1) circulates through piping (2) where it initially flows past end (3) of heat pipe (4). Heat pipe (4) communicates with upper warmest section (5) of water tank (6). If the temperature in hot water (1) which circulates past end (3) is higher than section (5) heat energy is transferred via heat pipe (4) to section (5). Hot water (1) subsequently flows past ends (3) of heat pipes (7) and (8) respectively. Heat pipes (7) and (8) communicate with cooler section (9) and cold section (10) of water tank (6). If the temperature of the hot water (1) flowing past ends (3) of heat pipes (7) and (8) is higher than sections (9) and (10) of water tank (6), heat energy is transferred via heat pipes (7) and (8) to sections (9) and (10).
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un appareil de chauffage de fluides, dans lequel de l'eau chaude (1) circule à travers une conduite (2) en passant d'abord par l'extrémité (3) du caloduc (4). Le caloduc(4) communique avec la section supérieure (5), qui est la plus chaude, du réservoir d'eau (6). Si la température de l'eau chaude (1) qui passe par l'extrémité (3) est supérieure à celle de la section (5), il se produit un transfert d'énergie thermique vers la section (5) via le caloduc (4). L'eau chaude (1) passe ensuite par les extrémités (3) des caloducs (7 et 8 respectivement). Les caloducs (7 et 8) communiquent avec la section plus froide (9) et la section froide (10) du réservoir d'eau (6). Si la température de l'eau chaude (1) passant par les extrémités (3) des caloducs (7 et 8) est supérieure à celle des sections (9 et 10) du réservoir d'eau (6), il se produit un transfert d'énergie thermique vers les sections (9 et 10) via les caloducs (7 et 8).
