  The masks, absorbers and slits must withstand the extremely high power and power density in the TPS front end. The material always used is OFHC or Glidcop. One solution is to increase the cooling efficiency of the water-cooled channel in these components. With the restrictions of water pressure < 7 kg/cm2 and water flow velocity < 3 m/s, the wire coil is chosen to enhance the average heat- transfer coefficient and increase not too much the loss of water pressure. With a water channel of diameter 7.5 mm and wire coil inserts of pitch 7.5 mm and wire diameter 1 mm, the cooling efficiency becomes enhanced 1.4 to 2 times in the components of the TPS front end. The wire coils of varied pitches are simulated and calculated in this work. We also compare our investigated data with other experimental data of other authors.
