The work presents initial studies of a reversed thermosiphon with a steam liquid lifter and a minigap evaporator. The main interest of the authors is the evaporator, especially the heat exchange efficiency and flow issues, such as maldistribution and pressure drop. However, because the thermosiphon circuit of such a construction is characterized by cyclic working conditions, which are quite difficult in analysis the authors focused on this specificity first. The article presents the concept of a test circuit and preliminary results for distilled water and for a minigap evaporator with a smooth heat exchange surface 100 x 200 mm and minigap thickness of 1 mm. Visualizations of the separator's work and the minigap boiling structures are presented.
