Abstract. The paper focuses on the production and thermal performance of metal meshed heaters. The sintering process of sample production is described and the boiling heat transfer performance of multilayer meshed surfaces is discussed. The experimental results of nucleate boiling are compared with selected models and correlations available in literature.
