Efficiency Enhancement of Heat Transfer Fluids by Using Carbon Dots Nanoparticles Derived From Aloe Vera
Keywords:Nano particles, Heat Transfer Enhancement, Heat Exchanger, Carbon Dots.
Modern technological progress in transportation, medical, electronics and HVAC systems has resulted in an extreme need for a performance-enhanced heat transfer system. Heat transfer employing a flowing fluid is most used, and the thermal properties of liquids play a decisive role in heating and cooling applications in industrial processes. The thermal conductivity of a liquid is an important physical property that decides its heat transfer performance. Conventional heat transfer fluids have inherently poor thermal conductivity, making them inadequate for ultra-high heat transfer applications. Nanofluids are a new class of liquids whose properties are controllable by adding nanoparticles. A great deal of attention has been drawn to their enhanced heat transfer characteristics relative to that of pure fluid. This paper synthesizes three various Nano Fluids and experimentally compares their heat transfer capabilities using a shell and tube heat exchanger setup. An attempt is made to suggest applications for enhanced heat transfer. Al2O3 Nanofluid is compared with Nanofluid containing carbon dots derived from Aloe vera, and it has been found that carbon. Aloe vera yields more heat transfer
