How Better are Propylene Glycol-based Nanofluids Compared to Propylene Glycol? A Study in Small, Jacketed Vessel

Anju K. Radhakrishnan, V. Aishwarya, K.S. Suganthi and K.S. Rajan    

Abstract: Experimental studies on heat transfer in a jacketed vessel were carried out to test the performance of two nanofluid coolants, viz. Mn0.47Fe2.53O4-propylene glycol (2 vol%) and CuO-propylene glycol (1 vol%) nanofluids, against pure propylene glycol. The flow rate of process fluid (Therminol-55®) flowing through the jacket was varied between 60-500 mL min-1. In general, these nanofluids were able to reduce the outlet temperature of process fluid to values lower than that achieved using pure propylene glycol. These nanofluids are more effective at higher flow rates of process fluid due to their improved transport properties.
