  • CO2 cooling systems are the wave of the future for industrial refrigeration. CO2 refrigeration systems are gaining traction in recent years which involves heat transfer between CO2 and the base fluid. The high viscosity of CO2 is of interest to the oil and gas industry in enhanced oil recovery and well-fracturing applications. A need arises to improve the thermal conductivity and viscosity of CO2 to increase the efficiency of these significant applications. Aggregation of nanoparticles is one… CONTINUE READING
