A series of laboratory experiments on self-circulating thermosyphon (SCT) was carried out. The thermosyphon system consists of heating section, condenser, reservoir, and heat exchanging section. The basic performance was elucidated. The present thermosyphon system works by itself under certain conditions of tilting angle of the condenser, the water filling rate, and the input power. The startup time of the present system is remarkably improved. The effect of the buoyancy on the driving force is indicated through the tilting angle of the condenser.
