At least a part of the first segment of at least one first heat pipe of the first heat dissipation layer is disposed overlapped on at least a part of the first segment of at least one second heat pipe of the second heat dissipation layer in a parallel manner.



ENERGY EFFICIENT REFRIGERATED ROOM WITH OPTIONALLY ASSOCIATED GEOTHERMAL EARTH LOOP SYSTEM

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A walk-in refrigeration room system effective for providing and defining an interior chilled air space includes an outer wall layer, a framing layer defining a series of spaces having a depth of at least 6″ inside the outer wall layer, an outer layer of insulation that has been sprayed into the framing layer spaces, a middle wall layer, an inner foamboard insulation layer, a vapor barrier layer, an optional inner wall layer, a door to permit walk-in access to the interior chilled air space, and one or more functional openings to permit electrical connections and/or chilled air to enter or exit the chilled air space. The inner wall layer forms an air-tight envelope when any doors or windows in the inner wall layer are closed. The outer insulation layer and the inner insulation layer overlap in a manner that does not contain any insulation gaps or thermal bridges.



Plate Heat Exchanger, in Particular for Condensing Boilers

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A heat exchanger for boilers, in particular for condensing boilers. The heat exchanger having a set of heat exchanging plates inside which the water to be heated flows and outside which the combustion products coming from a burner pass. The heat exchanger has plates coupled to diaphragms for closing openings present on the plates; each plate having at least two levels of respective channels for the water flow to be heated. Hydraulic connections in series between the channels can be provided on the layer closest to a burner.



Evaporative Cooling System

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A novel system for using a high water content polymer and its various implementations to provide a means of evaporative cooling and temperature regulation for buildings and structures. This invention will provide benefits at much lower initial and ongoing costs than competing solutions and will bring other benefits and extensions inherent in its design and implementation.
