A modified tube and shell heat exchanger is comprised of a tube of heat sink material having micro heat pipes extending outward into the volume between the tube and shell to enable the rapid and efficient transfer and storage of thermal energy into the heat sink from a liquid or gas circulated through the volume. Several embodiments of the invention include modifications to the heat pipes. An alternative embodiment reverses the location of the heat sink to fill the volume between the shell and tube, adapting the tube for fluid flow, and orients heat pipe...
A heat exchanger comprised of a shell having one or more inlets and one or more outlets adapted for cooling fluid flow; a tube disposed within said shell defining an annular volume between said tube and said shell, said annular volume adapted for cooling fluid flow; a heat sink disposed in said tube; and a plurality of heat pipes extending outward from said heat sink into said annular volume, said plurality of heat pipes and said tube adapted to exchange thermal energy between said cooling fluid and said heat sink.
