Vapor condensation of the HFE-7100 in loop heat pipe was studied experimentally and theoretically. Numerical calculations of the vapor condensation on the curvilinear fin have been performed. Numerical, theoretical and experimental data are in a good agreement. Minimal condensate film thickness on the top of the fin has been determined and increases monotonously with the increase in the temperature drop.
