Nano Fluids, Thermal Conductivity, Heat Transfer Rate, Circular Tube, Finned Surface Area


The concept of heat exchanger plays a major role in the refrigeration and air conditioning system. The rectangular fin arranged outside the hot fluid pipe & used the Al2O3 as a nano fluid to increase the heat transfer rate using counter flow exchanger. Preparing the nano fluid & increasing the heat transfer rate by using Al2O3+H2O. Increase of surface area utilized for heat exchange will ultimately increase the heat transfer rate. Thermal conductivity is considered important factor for rapid cooling and heating application. Base heat transfer fluid normally having low thermal conductivity, so we goes to Nano fluid for increases the heat transfer rate. Nano fluid is nanometre sized particle such as metal, oxide, and carbide etc., dispersed into base heat transfer fluid.
