Two-phase cooling is considered an attractive option for electronics cooling due to its ability to dissipate large quantities of heat. In recent years, pool boiling has shown tremendous ability in high heat dissipation applications. Researchers have used various fluid medium for pool boiling including water, alcohol, refrigerants, nanofluids and binary mixture. In the current work, binary mixture of water with ethanol was chosen as the working fluid. Plain copper chip was used as the boiling surface. Effect of various concentrations of binary mixture was investigated. A maximum heat flux of 1720 kW/m2 at a wall superheat of 28°C was recorded for 15% ethanol in water. It showed a 1.5 fold increase in CHF over pure water.
