Preparation and Stability Analysis of Water Based Al2O3, TiO2 and ZnO Nanofluids

Adnan TOPUZ [1]


For nanofluids to be able to use practically, they must not cluster and precipitate. Namely, they have to become stable. The target of this study is to determine the parameters that are effective at preparing stable nanofluid and to obtain stable one.To follow nanofluid stability, its sedimentation state is determined by photo capturing and controlling continuously. It is verified by SEM images that the nanofluids, which do not precipitate and are determined as stable, are distributed homogeneously and do not constitute considerable agglomerates.

The work fluid is made from Al2O3, TiO2, ZnO nanoparticles and deionized water as base fluid. The solutions are prepared with 0.1%, 0.3%, 0.5%, 0.7% and 1.0% volume concentration. They are mixed 30 minutes by probe type of ultrasonic homogenizer at environment conditions. Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS) was added to the solutions as surfactant to prevent instability occurred due to agglomeration and sedimentation.

At this study, it is investigated that from where the contradictory data for stability experiments in the literature stems. Moreover, the various stable nanofluid preparation parameters that are not available in the literature are given.It is observed that Al2O3, TiO2 and ZnO nanofluids have stability up to 5 days, 7 days and 21 days without considerably sedimentation, respectively. It is ascertained that properties of nanoparticle and nanofluid preparation parameters are important to enable stability.
