In this paper, the mechanism of operation of an inverse circulating thermosyphon evaporator is proposed. The performance characteristics of this novel evaporator have been studied experimentally and theoretically. The inverse circulating thermosyphon evaporators have higher heat transfer coefficient and longer operation period in comparison with ordinary circulating evaporators.
