This innovative technology will work to cool down the machines . This will use very less energy almost nil and it is completely waterless.

Copper stripe based cooling system


The presented Idea is based on Heat exchange principle.As per sketch there will be a conveyor belt system and some copper stripes will be connected with this belt.Each copper strip will have a moveable hook.The conveyor belt will move with a motor.Each copper strip will be separated with each other and with conveyor belt with the help of Insulation (wooden insulation).Each copper strip will be connected with the machine for 15 to 20 seconds to absorb the heat and after that this copper strip will be removed and next copper strip will be ready to absorb the heat.The removed strip will be cooled down after some time and will be ready to couple with the machine again.In this way each copper stripe will work one by one to absorb the heat to cool the machine and each strip will get cool down due to convection .

What I thought is that if I use a continuous water jet to cool the motor then the motor will remain cool so if I use the copper stripes then the same effect will be occured.It will work in this way that temperature will be not increased of machine if I couple the device with the machine?

    dear friend

    why you think this can do requested job ( heat transfer ) with best efficiency and reliability ?
    again whats it's benefit compare to regular heat transfer technologies ?
    ( weight , simplicity , endurance , cost ,etc )

    for example : a conventional heat pipe ( a tube contain some liquid as refrigerant ) made from simple both side closed tube ... it transfer huge amounts of energy, few millimetre diameter can transfer thousands joules of heat without any mechanical movement part and with lowest possible heat resistance .

    again another facts :
    The advantage of heat pipes over many other heat-dissipation mechanisms is their great efficiency in transferring heat. A pipe one inch in diameter and two feet long can transfer 3.7 kW (12.500 BTU per hour) at 1,800 °F (980 °C) with only 18 °F (10 °C) drop from end to end. Some heat pipes have demonstrated a heat flux of more than 23 kW/cm², about four times the heat flux through the surface of the sun.

    you can see commercialized many heat pipes from your cellphone , laptop/computer cpu and gpu cooling , to industrial heat pipes .

    about : This will use very less energy almost nil and it is completely waterless
    when we talk about transfer heat none of heat transfer machines use external more energy for transfer heat ( rules of thermodynamics = heat always and naturally transfer from hot source to cold sink )
    this is a natural term cooling systems heat flux ( density ) and weight is matter .

    if we want to reverse this natural ( transfer heat from cold things to hot places ) we must use external energy that we call these machines " HEAT PUMPS " for example in air conditions , refrigerators and so machines .

    about : water less term ( its better to say liquid free )
    many heat transfer technologies don't use liquid for heat transfer , conventional metallic heat sinks , radiated heat sinks , gas operated heat sinks ,magnetic heat pumps and heat pipes actually don't use liquid for convection heat transfer ( in heat pipes used few refrigerant in bi phase , refrigerant evaporate on heat source and condense in cold sink ...these phase change cycles continue forever )

    for comparison : 1g of water able to transfer around 40 jouls of heat with 10 C temperature difference between hot and cold sides of system in liquid phase.
    1g of water able to transfer around 600 joules of heat when evaporate in hot side and condense in cold side ! this is 15 time more than convection heat transfer with same mass of coolant without any moving part .
    in bi phase heat transfer difference between ends be lower than 1 C !

    you can transfer near 600000 joules of heat with 1kg of water by using simple heat pipe . this is equal to bugatti veyron's engine coolant capacity under full load !

    Even we can add pores on the aluminum film to increase its heat dissipation efficiency

    In this way, it is better to use ordinary copper plate cooler directly for cooling. On this basis, solid materials with lower specific heat capacity can be used, and the arrangement of copper plates can be improved. (For example, we can use thin aluminum film, and add copper heat conducting wire to the aluminum film.)Right?
