MINCO Polyimide Thermofoil Heaters
Sat Jan 06, 2018 | 7:35P | PermaLink BY: Max Page

When it's -19C outside and the water pipes are frozen solid, one often looks for creative ways to safely thaw the pipes. Frostytech knows heatsinks, not plumbing, so we'd approach this kind of engineering question from a bit of a unique perspective. If a freezing cold copper water pipe could be turned into a massive heatsink... heat energy would gradually be conducted along the copper pipe wall and melt the frozen water inside, right?

Attaching a CPU to a 1/2" diameter copper waterpipe is of course impractical, the heat source really needs to conform to the circumference of the metal to get good thermal conduction... so, how about a low voltage, polyimide thermofoil heater wrapped helically around the pipe? Could that work?

While looking up part numbers for some salvaged Minco polyimide thermofoil heaters, I just happened to stumble upon this awesome little video produced by Minco's summer interns in 2015. It's campy, but earnest, and nice to see an engineering company not take itself too seriously. :-)
