Impact of DoE/BES-Funded Metrology Development: Thermophysical Properties of Alternative Refrigerants

Published

Author(s)

Mark O. McLinden

Abstract

Thermophysical properties are key data needed to design refrigeration equipment using alternatives to the CFC and HCFC refrigerants. The measurement, modeling, and database aspects of the NIST program to determine the properties of the replacement refrigerants are outlined. Measurements are at the core of the program and many of these have been carried out on experimental apparatus developed under the sponsorship of the DoE Office of Basic Energy Sciences. These data have aided industry in replacing the ozine-depleting refrigerants while simulatneously improving the energy efficiency of new refrigeration equipment.
