Survey of Data and Models for Refrigerant Mixtures Containing Halogenated Olefins



Ian Bell, Demian Riccardi, Ala Bazyleva, Mark O. McLinden


We survey existing data for refrigerant blends containing halogenated olefins (hydrofluoroolefins (HFO), hydrochlorofluoroolefins (HCFO), and hydrochloroolefins (HCO)) in the open literature. The data are primarily taken from the NIST SOURCE database and are presented in graphical form to demonstrate the relative coverage of the data. The primary conclusion is that blends containing halogenated olefins remain only sparsely measured in experiments, and some classes of data (e.g., speed-of-sound data) are particularly sparse for blends containing halogenated olefins. The second part of this study compares the thermodynamic models in NIST REFPROP against the experimental data sets and identifies systems (of which there are many) for which refitting of the thermodynamic model is required.
