Summary

This paper presents a literature survey of the experimental thermal conductivity data for environmentally friendly refrigerants, namely HydroFluoroOlefins (HFOs) and HydroChloroFluoroOlefins (HCFOs), in the liquid phase. A total of 2073 experimental data for six alternative refrigerants, i.e. R1233zd(E), R1234yf, R1234ze(E), R1234ze(Z), R1224yd(Z), and R1336mzz(Z), was collected in the temperature range from 203.18 K to 434.99 K and in the pressure range from 0.10 MPa to 66.62 MPa. Literature correlations not considering the pressure dependence were compared for reduced pressures lower than 1. Di Nicola et al. (2014a) correlation was re-fitted and new coefficients expressly dedicated to low global warming potential refrigerants were given. The proposed equation gives an overall deviation of 1.78% for the data measured at reduced pressure up to 1. The liquid thermal conductivity dependence on pressure was also considered adding new terms on Di Nicola et al. (2014a) correlation and on Latini and Sotte (2012) correlation. The proposed equations give overall deviation of 1.45% and 1.99%, respectively, for the complete dataset.
