Pool boiling studies were conducted on horizontal flat copper heaters of various surface roughnesses (Ra). The boiling fluids were dilute suspensions of spherical-shaped Titania and Alumina particles stably suspended in Ethylene Glycol-Water mixtures. Applied surface heat fluxes were ranging upto 189kW/m2. It was found that nanoparticles deteriorate boiling heat transfer. Nanoparticle deposition on heater is believed to be the most likely reason for observed deterioration.
