An experimental rig was designed to investigate the thermo- hydrodynamic features of nanoﬂuid. The overall heat transfer coefﬁcient becomes larger 16.79% for 100 ppm nanoﬂuid. No signiﬁcant growth in pressure drop values was observed. The process temperatures have important role in nanoﬂuid inﬂuence. article i nfo abstract Article history: The purpose of this study is to verify the potential using of nano-silver dispersed water based nanoﬂuid Received 21 August 2015 on efﬁciency improvement of a commercial corrugated plate heat exchanger.
