REFLEAK estimates composition changes of zeotropic mixtures in leak and recharge processes. The leak/recharge simulation program consists of three parts: 1) the pre-processing section for inputting required data, 2) the computation section which simulates leak/recharge processes and, 3) the post-processing section to display calculated results and to print or store data and graphs.

REFLEAK offers the following:

·         Choice of simulation mode between leak only and leak/recharge

·         Choice of process between isothermal (slow) and adiabatic (fast) leak conditions

·         Choice of vapor leak or liquid leak

·         Choice of 61 refrigerants

·         Choice of any mixture, up to 5 components, comprising the above refrigerants

·         Choice of 66 predefined refrigerant mixtures

·         Choice of specifying the initial temperature and initial volumetric quality of charge directly or through specifying the maximum liquid fill at a different fill temperature. The second option is consistent with the specification of the initial volumetric quality used in ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 34, "Designation and Safety Classification of Refrigerants".

·         Choice of specifying the number of recharges, up to 10, and the % mass leaked after each.

Calculated vapor and liquid compositions are displayed in a graphic format. Additional tabular data includes temperature, pressure, volumetric quality, liquid specific volume and vapor specific volume for each 1% of mass leaked throughout the process. Output data can be saved and printed. Thermodynamic properties of refrigerant mixtures are calculated based upon the widely used NIST Standard Reference Database 23 - NIST Reference Fluid Thermodynamic and Transport Properties Database: REFPROP Version 8.0. A user manual and help section is included.

Compared to Version 3.1, this version of REFLEAK uses the representation of thermodynamic properties based on NIST Standard Reference Database 23 - NIST Reference Fluid Thermodynamic and Transport Properties Database: REFPROP Version 9.0 (versus Version 8.0 in REFLEAK 3.1), includes extended list of refrigerants and refrigerant mixtures, and is compatible with the Microsoft® Windows® 7 operating system.

System Requirements: Free space for complete installation: 10 MB. REFLEAK is designed to run on any personal computer (PC) capable of running Microsoft® Windows® 7, XP with Service Pack 3, and Vista operating systems.

The installation module requires .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 (or later version), which can be downloaded from the Microsoft website if not present on the user's PC.
