An Ionanofluids are a new and innovative class of heat transfer fluids which exhibit fascinating thermo physical properties compared to their base ionic liquids. In this paper (1-Butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride) (BmimCL)ionic fluid is used comparison with Distilled Water. Distilled Water is non Ionic form in nature, so, results using (BmimCL)is Overall good efficient in heat transfer device, were obtained with experimental work results on thermal conductivity and heat capacity,. As compared to (BmimCL) those of their base ionic liquids such as (mineral oils and ethylene glycol) etc are less thermophysical properties . as coolants in heat exchanger are also used to access their feasibility and performance in heat transfer devices.
