Experimental Investigation for the Determination of Characteristics of Nano Particles Using Nano Particle Analyser

Authors(4) :-Kallalu Harika, Tummala Likhitha, Samatham Madhukar, Sumith Kumar

Many investigations are being performed for usage of Nano particles in shell and tube heat exchanger for obtaining better results, as a part of determining the characteristics of Nano particles we need to know the size and thermal properties of the Nano particles. In this paper, we are determining the size and thermal properties such as conductivity, viscosity, electrode voltage, zeta potential for copper oxide and aluminum oxide using Horiba Nano Partica SZ -100 Nano particle analyzer. In this experiment 01mg of both the samples are mixed with 10ml of deionized water each and then it is placed in ultrasonic cleaning equipment for an hour and then tested in the Nano particle analyzer for determining the mentioned properties.
