Thermal Analysis of short bake out jacket version 1 12-Nov-2013
Bake out jacket without outer cover and cooling lines PTFE frame with stainless heater support with 3 heater rods on a side
Simplified model of bake out jacket for thermal analysis outer stainless jacket with fixed temperature cooling ribs/tubes insulation layer stainless heater supports naked Be beam pipe naked Aluminum beam pipe 6 mm dead air layer between heater support tube and beam pipe The beam pipe wall thickness and outer stainless shell have been scaled up by a factor of 5 and the thermal conductivities have been scaled down by a factor of 5 to compensate. This was to facilitate meshing and reduce solving time.
The analysis was done by adjusting the heater power input to raise the beam pipe temperature to approximately 250 deg at the center. The ambient temperature was adjusted to give approximately zero power into the air. That is the heat into the air by convection from hotter elements is equal to the heat out by convection to the cooled surface. Two cases were run with different conditions. Case 1 did not have radiative heat transfer between the beam pipe and the heater jacket while Case 2 did. The convective parameter is a factor of 2 higher in Case 1 than Case 2. Case 2 has a higher temperature for the cooling tubes.

Summary of results and comments The spread in temperature on the beam pipe is 168 deg C to 247 deg C for 150 watts of heater power in case 1. For case 2 the input heater power is 125 watts with a spread in beam pipe temperature from 204 deg C to 258 deg C. The more uniform beam pipe temperature in case 2 is the result of choosing a reduced convection parameter thus reducing the convective heat loss from the naked portions of the beam pipe. The reduced temperature of the stainless heater in case 2 is because of the increased coupling of between beam pipe and heater that results from including radiative heat transfer. As these two cases demonstrate there is uncertainty in the heat loss from the naked portions of the beam pipe, since one can’t know in this limited model what the correct convective heat loss is. A factor of 2 uncertainty can be expected. In either case however there is significant heat transfer from the naked sections to the surrounding air. So it makes sense to arrange some exchange of air in the PST region, rather than trying to absorb all of the heat with the cooling jacket as has been done in this simulation.
The model does not include the PTFE (Teflon) ribs which have a factor 3 higher conductivity than the insulation, but the ribs are some what isolated from the hot stainless heater carrier. This is important because the stainless heater support tube reaches 280 deg C and the melting point of PTFE is 327 deg C. Decomposition sets in at a lower temperature. It is expected that the ambient air temperature will be somewhat lower that indicated in the simulation, because there will be additional heat loss to the PST walls which have not been included in this model.
