This project describes the experimental analysis of aluminium based nano fluid with the help of heat exchanger system. A pipe in pipe heat exchanger is used. The heat exchanger is designed in such that there is a cross flow between fluids.The nano fluid is supplied from one end with the help of pump and from another side water is supplied in crossflow direction. The purpose of a system is that to study the heat transfer rate of nano fluid and to increase heat transfer rate of the system using nano fluid. This dissertation is an experimental study to minimize the heat loss and increase heat transfer rate and effectiveness of the system.
