In this paper, we describe the outline of experimental manufacture of the LHP. This LHP is made of a copper. The evaporator is φ19×95mm, the vapor tube is φ5×300mm, the condenser is φ3.5×600mm and the liquid tube is φ 3.5×300mm. The wick is made of the sintering copper. The working fluid is methanol. Second, we describe the test result of heat transfer capability of this LHP. Finally, I describe the basic equations that resolve the physical development of the LHP and how to estimate the each temperatures of the LHP.
