In this paper, heat transfer enhancement using liquid-liquid Taylor flow is examined. The experiments are conducted in mini-scale tubes with constant wall temperature. The segmented flow is created using several fractions of low viscosity silicone oil (1 cSt) and water for a wide range of flow rates and segment lengths. The variety of liquids and flow rates change the Prandtl, Reynolds, and capillary numbers. The dimensionless mean wall flux and the dimensionless thermal flow length are used to analyze the experimental heat transfer data. The comparison shows the heat transfer rate for Taylor flow is higher than in single-phase flow. The heat transfer enhancement occurs due to internal circulation in the fluid segments.
