- n. An arrangement of siphon-tubes serving to induce circulation of water in a heating apparatus.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. An arrangement of siphon tubes for assisting circulation in a liquid.
“Passive solar heaters can be subdivided into two classes: units in which the functions of heat collection and storage are separate, known as thermosiphon flat-plate systems, and arrangements that combine collection and storage into one integrated unit, namely, integral passive solar water heaters.”
“Circulation between the collector and the oil storage tank requires no pump, since it is based on natural circulation, i.e. the thermosiphon effect.”
“The water is transported to a barrel-shaped, water + steam-filled heat store by natural (thermosiphon) circulation; as more water evaporates, the pressure increases steadily.”
“The ISE heat-accumulating solar cooker uses a highly efficient oil-filled flat plate collector that operates on the thermosiphon circulation principle to carry heat to an elevated hot-oil storage tank.”
“Circulation to work with thermosiphon system can also be connected to a wood stove heat exchanger”
“These systems, which have collecting surfaces connected to a separate hot water storage, tank, circulate water by thermosiphon (convection) effect.”
“The Centre is working with American and Japanese colleagues towards a new geothermal technology called 'the supercritical CO2 thermosiphon'.”
“During the last round of the Geothermal Stimulus funding in USA, four projects received federal funding to pursue different aspects of supercritical CO2 thermosiphon with a total project funding of $15 million.”
“An ammonia central chiller and glycol secondary distribution fluid system keeps the warehouse at 39 F, and can operate in free cooling mode by using the thermosiphon principle.”
“A 2 kW photovoltaic array provides 60-70% of the home’s power, and an Australian thermosiphon passive loop system heats a 120gal tank of water on the roof to approximately 180 degrees before directing it inward for domestic hot water use.”
