Abstract: The present work outlines the possibility of using nanofluids for industrial heat treatment. Development of nanoquenchants having (i) high quench severity for enhancement of heat transfer for thick sections with low quench sensitivity and (ii) low cooling severity for thin sections with high quench sensitivity would be extremely useful to the heat treating community. The temperature dependent heat transfer coefficient and the wettability of the medium are the two important parameters that can be used to characterize a nanoquenchant to assess its suitability for industrial heat treatment. 2007 ASM International.
