Low-cost heat transfer nanofluids
Heating & cooling represent important costs throughout numerous industries. As energy efficiency raises more and more attention, heat exchangers can be made more efficient by using nanofluids, i.e. heat transfer fluids supplemented with nanoparticles in suspension. We propose a new type of cost-efficient nanofluids based on nanoparticles extracted from fly ash and functionalized by ambient pressure UVC initiated chemical vapor deposition in a fluidized bed.
