Özet

The aim of study is to determine the effect of heat pipe systems to collector efficiency at solar collectors used in supplying hot water. For this purpose, two different collectors as the connected heat pipe and separated heat pipe have been produced. The experimental studies with the collectors have been conducted in Karabuk city environment. The experiments have been completed in six days. The collector efficiencies have been calculated by measuring temperature of water tanks, ambient temperature and solar radiation in both collectors. As a result, while average efficiency of the connected heat pipe collector is 57.6%, average efficiency of the separated heat pipe collector is 48.5%
