Abstract

We present a new wide-ranging correlation expressed in terms of temperature and density for the viscosity of difluoromethane (R-32) based on critically evaluated experimental data. The correlation is designed to be used with an existing equation of state from the triple point to 425 K and at pressures up to 70 MPa. Comparisons with experimental data over the temperature range 220 to 425 K at pressures up to 70 MPa indicate the correlation has an estimated uncertainty (at the 95% confidence level) of 3.4% in this region, and 2% for the vapor at atmospheric pressure. The correlation also behaves in a physically reasonable manner and may be extrapolated up to 350 MPa, but caution is advised in this region since it requires extrapolation of the equation of state.
