Narrow rectangular channel has been widely used at evaporator of cryogenic engineering and electronics cooling. At present paper, saturated flow boiling heat transfer at vertical narrow rectangular channel with gaps of 1.0, 1.5 and 2.5 was experimentally investigated, the heat transfer characteristics at various operating conditions were tested and discussed, and the correlation of saturated boiling heat transfer coefficient was regressed used Least Square Method according to experimental results. It shows that heat transfer coefficient decreases at wider gaps and higher inlet pressure, and it increases at higher flow rate, heat flux and increased vapor quality. Compared with traditional correlation for ordinary channel, the discrepancy is significant. Considering the size effects, a new correlation was proposed to estimate the heat transfer coefficient. The error of the regressed correlation is within ±12%.
