Results of experimental studies of heat transfer in a thermosyphon illustrating the influence of the filling ratio and the heat load on the temperature distribution in the vapor channel, evaporation and condensation zones are presented. The thermosyphon was made of copper and was 161 mm high with side walls 1.5 mm thick, bottom cover 2 mm thick, an internal dimmer of the evaporation part of 54 mm and an internal diameter of the vapor channel of 39.2 mm. Based on the results of experimental studies, temperature dependences were established in the characteristic cross sections of the thermosyphon on the heat flux value supplied to the bottom cover. In addition, a well-Appearing thermosyphon self-regulation property has been found-The growth of the heat load in the evaporation zone in the range from 1940 to 7685 W/m2 does not lead to a decrease in the heat removal intensity from the heat-release region.
