Abstract

This paper contains new, representative reference equations for the viscosity of n-hexane. The equations are based in part upon a body of experimental data that has been critically assessed for internal consistency and for agreement with theory whenever possible. The correlations are valid from the triple point to 600 K, and at pressures up to 100 MPa. The average absolute percent deviation of the fit is 1.56, with bias -0.04, We estimate the uncertainty at a 95% confidence level to be 2% for the liquid phase at temperatures from the triple point to 450 K and pressures to 100 MPa. For the liquid at 450 K to 600 K at pressures to 100 MPa, the uncertainty at the 95% confidence level is 6%, and is 0.3% for the low-density gas at pressures to 0.3 MPa.
