Title:A Study of Evaporation Heat Transfer Coefficient Correlations at Low Heat and Mass Fluxes for Pure Refrigerants and Refrigerant Mixtures
Author(s):Smith, M.K.; Wattelet, J.P.; Newell, T.A.
Subject(s):refrigerant-side evaporation condensation studies
Abstract:An average R12 refrigerant correlation has been developed for the mass flux range of 25-100 kg/m2-s and the heat flux range of 2-10 kW/m2. Refrigerant mixtures of 80% R22/lO% R141b and 65% R22/35% R123 have also been tested over asjrniJar range of conditions. Mixture heat transfer coefficients have been detennined and correlations for each mixture pair are presented. The R221R141b average correlation may have a strong dependence on changes in surface tension. The heat transfer coefficient of R22JR141b compares well with that of R12. The heat transfer coefficient of R22/R123 severely under performs R12.
