High sensitive and intelligence are the main function of the Magneto Rheological Fluids (MRF). In this research work, magneto rheological samples are prepared with two different carrier oils (Honge and Castor) independently. Both the samples are mixed and prepared with same concentration of iron particles. In order to reduce the sedimentation fine lithium grease is added as stabilizer for both samples. The flow properties are examined by cup and bob type rheometer. Then comparative study is made on the properties like shear stress, strain, shear rate, dynamic viscosity, angular frequency, storage modulus, loss modulus and loss factor.
