Abstract. In the article, heat transfer during boiling of two liquids: water and ethanol was described and test results were shown. Two samples of pin-fins were researched – of different heights of the microfins (namely 0.3 and 0.6 mm) made of pure copper. The higher fins performed better than the lower for both the liquids used in the experiments. It must be caused by larger surfaces and better heat exchange conditions during this phase change process. The results can be used in the industry for the production of heat exchangers.
