RÉSUMÉ

Heat pipe research and its applications seem to be much more attached to space exploration and microelectronics than other conventional uses. Evaluating this scenario, some actual and measurable opportunities for utilization of heat pipes in industry are listed, including selection of better spots and advantages for its usage. Potential achievable gains, barriers, and some suggestions to accomplish this goal are presented.
