Correlation for the Viscosity of Pentafluoroethane (R125) from the Triple Point to 500 K at Pressures up to 60 MPa.
Marcia L. Huber, Arno R. Laesecke
A correlation for the viscosity of pentafluorethane (R125) has been developed based on a compilation and critical assessment of the available experimental data. The correlation covers a wide range of fluid states, including the supercritical region. It is applicable from the triple point at 172.52 K to 500 K with pressures varying up to 60 MPa. The formulation includes a zero-density contribution, initial density dependence based on the Rainwater-Friend theory, and a residual contribution for higher densities that combines virial terms with a free-volume term, both temperature dependent. The estimated uncertainty of the viscosity correlation (coverage factor of two) is 3 % along the liquid-phase saturation boundary, 3 % in the compressed liquid phase at pressures to 60 MPa, and is 0.8 % in the vapor.
