With the increasing concerns on safety, the standard of protective suit has been gradually enhanced lately. The present tactics is to increase thickness of the protective suit with tougher and denser texture. Unfortunately, comfort and mobility for the user have been ignored. A key aspect is the disposal of body heat in the hostile venting environments. Therefore, a great necessity is raised to develop a new protective suit which can effectively take away body heat while maintaining the wearer’s minimum comfort in the working situation.
This study focuses on improving the heat dissipation mechanism, attempting a use of heat pipe, which has been well developed in the application of high temperature electronic components, to be the medium for heat conduction. Heat pipe is usually seen to be applied in the range around 50 °C or above, and no one has ever tried to apply it in the condition of around 36 °C, the normal body temperature. From the objectives set above, this study was formulated with a use of existing industrial products, and discuss was also made whether the standard heat pipe suits in the condition of relatively low temperatures. Related issues such as its heat conduction performances and effects on temperature distribution will be analyzed. Through a proper experimental design, the functions of the heat pipe and its applicability in the condition of low temperature are also analyzed. Having analyzed the pros and cons from the engineer’s viewpoints, this study also provides directions of the potential application areas for future commodity.
