This paper presents results of an experimental investigation carried out to determine the effects of surface material on nucleate pool boiling heat transfer of refrigerant R113. Experiments were performed on horizontal circular plates of brass, copper and aluminum. The heat transfer coefficient was evaluated by measuring wall superheat and effective heat flux removed by boiling. The experiments were carried out in the heat flux range of 8 to 200kW/m2 . The obtained results have shown significant effect of surface material, with copper providing the highest heat transfer coefficient among the samples, and aluminum the least. There was negligible difference at low heat fluxes, but copper showed 23% better performance at high heat fluxes than aluminum and 18% better than brass.
