    In this work, we report the forced convective heat transfer performance and pressure drop of aqueous ethylene glycol seeded with silver nanoparticles for low temperature applications. Experiments were performed in a tube in tube counter-current heat exchanger using silver nanofluid as the hot fluid under laminar flow conditions. In this study, water-ethylene glycol mixture with 70:30 volume percent was used as the base medium. Silver nanofluid was allowed to flow through inner tube of the heat exchanger for varying nanofluid mass flow rates from 5 g/s to 30 g/s and three inlet temperatures of nanofluid viz. 2 °C, 5 °C and 10 °C. The increments in thermal diffusivity and viscosity are found to be ~37 % and ~69 % at 0.45 vol%, respectively. The enhancement in heat transfer coefficient at highest mass flow rate is found to be ~94 % for 0.45 vol%. The pressure drop in the silver nanofluid increases with respect to increase in volume percentage of nanoparticles due to increase in viscosity.
