Optimum Operating Parameters of a Beads Mill for an AlN Containing Nanofluids
Abstract:The effects of the operating parameters of a beads mill, such as the size of beads, the rotating speed, and the running time for the dispersion stability and thermal conductivity of nanofluids were investigated. It was found that smaller beads were more effective for dispersing the nanoparticles in n-Hexane and the nanoparticles were more easily deagglomerated at a medium speed. The optimum running time for a beads mill was also identified to increase the dispersion stability and the thermal conductivity of nanofluids.
