“Aluminum Heat Pipes” Kiev Research & Technological Centre was created in 1986 on the base of Heat Pipes Laboratory.
This Laboratory has its cradle from the Heat Power Engineering Department of National Technical University of Ukraine “Kiev Polytechnic Institute” since 1972.
Scientific and technological base for efficient designing and fabrication of advanced heat transferring devices –Heat Pipes (HPs) was founded by the personnel of the named Laboratory. There more than 1 000 HPs modifications were developed and applied in the various branches of industry.
