A theoretical development of the thermodynamic properties of two mixtures of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants, i.e. R407C and R410A (in the superheated vapour state), is carried out.

These properties may be used as a theoretical basis for research into the optimal HFC-mixture for compressor efficiency and for performing cycle calculations in the vapour-phase region for systems working with R407C and R410A.

Abstract

A theoretical development of the thermodynamic properties of two mixtures of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants, i.e. R407C and R410A (in the superheated vapour state), is carried out. The modelling is based on the Martin-Hou equation of state, which has long been used for pure hydrofluorocarbons (e.g. R134a) with good results. Since R407C and R410A are very well investigated refrigerants, the analytical procedure here derived concerns with those thermodynamic properties of R407C and R410A (in the superheated state) that are not published in the current specialised literature. They are: compressibility factor, isentropic and isothermal compressibility, volume expansivity, isentropic and isothermal exponent, speed of sound and Joule-Thomson coefficient. These properties may be used as a theoretical basis for research into the optimal HFC-mixture for compressor efficiency and for performing cycle calculations in the vapour-phase region for systems working with R407C and R410A.
