Abstract- In the present paper, three different samples of alumina used as nanoparticles in the ethylene glycol suspension of alumina with volumetric concentration in the range . These samples have different surface properties, shape and size. The use of Al2O3/EG nanofluids as coolants in a double-tube heat exchanger has been studied under laminar flow conditions. The hot solvent inlet heat exchanger must be cooled down with a specified amount. At first, heat transfer relations between hot solvent and nanofluids as coolants have been investigated theoretically. Subsequently, heat transfer area and flow rate of coolant are optimized by using the nanofluids. In the present paper, heat transfer coefficient, overall heat transfer coefficient, friction factor, pressure drop and pumping power for Al2O3/EG nanofluids calculated.
