density, VTPR, vibrating tube, R152a, R365mfc


This work presents the density of new environmentally friendly refrigerants 1,1-difluoroethane (R152a) and 1,1,1,3,3-Pentafluorbutane (R365mfc) in their pure fluid and mixture. The density is covered in the temperature range of -10-450C and the pressure range of p=0.65-10.47 bar. The density is measured by a vibrating-tube densitometer (DMA-HPM) manufactured by Anton Paar. The apparatus supplies data in the temperature range of -10°C to 200 °C and a pressure range of 0 to 1400 bar, with an uncertainty of 0.1%. The experimental data is validated using the ‘Volume Translated Peng Robinson Equation of State’ and high precision fundamental equations of state by Outcalt and McLinden from the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST). Outcalt and McLinden model achieve deviations less than 0.56% for R365mfc and 0.51% for R152a. The deviations of VTPR are within 2.5% and 15% in the pure fluid and mixture respectively.Â
