A system consisting of magneto-caloric fluid, which releases (absorbs) heat in the presence (absence) of a magnetic field, is used to achieve refrigeration. Gadolinium is used as a magneto-caloric material. The influence of using water and galinstan as heat transfer liquid, on the refrigerator performance is numerically analysed by varying the mass flow rate of the magneto-caloric fluid, and MCM volume fraction (0.4 to 0.6). A cooling load upto 20 W at room temperature is obtained over a temperature difference of 0.5 K.
