Witharana, S, Uanreroro, A, Chen, H et al. (1 more author) Pool boiling of Titania-Water-Ethylene Glycol Nanofluids. In: UNSPECIFIED UK-China Particle Technology Forum II, 1-3 September 2009, Guiyang City, China. .
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.
