Flow boiling experiments with sub-cooled Isopentane and n-Pentane at 3.0bar pressure assess the utility of compressed copper- and steel-filament screen laminate surface coatings as high performance boiling surfaces. High-speed video show that at high heat flux ebullition is unsteady. Isopentane and n-Pentane are found to produce nearly identical boiling characteristic curves. At the same applied heat flux, the superheat of copper filament coatings are much smaller than the steel filament coating superheats.
