The paper analyzes the results of research for nucleate and film boiling of nanofluids. The results of experimental studies of nucleate boiling nanofluids indicates increasing critical heat flux in comparison with the clean liquid, while there is both an increase and a decrease in the heat transfer coefficient. At film boiling nanofluids mode there is a significant acceleration of the process of destruction of the vapor film and the transition to nucleate regime for hardening metal products experiments.
