In this research work alkali nature of cow urine as cooling media for metallurgical operations were examined. The alkaline nature of cow urine acts as a good electrolyte liquid. One of the most common processes in quenching is the vaporization of liquids. During this process, due to Leiden, the frost phenomenon leads to generating uneven residual stress, crack distortions and thus avoid homogeneous quenching. In this work, the chemical characterization of cow urine has been tested by means of Differential Scanning Calorimeter/Thermogravimetric analysis (DSC/TGA), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Particle size analyzer (PSA), and Conductivity meter, through these tests the points of interest are (i) how ingredients activated, (ii) mass measurement while the temperature of a sample is changed over the time, (iii) evaluate the thermal stability, and (iv)specific heat of cooling medium. Cow urine specific heat 4.517J/gm0c at room temperature is high compared with water, and the boiling point is slightly higher than water, C-H, C=O, OH groups present, particles are monodisperse 7091.5nm spherical size present. Due to ingredients present in the cow urine, it exhibits superior properties with respect to thermal and heat transfer characteristics than other cooling media. Moreover, it provides uniform quenching, better thermal and cooling properties, so cow urine is one more option for cooling media.
