Summary

A new equation of state in the form of a fundamental equation explicit in the dimensionless Helmholtz free energy has been developed for chlorodifluoromethane (R 22). This equation, which contains 22 fitted coefficients, covers the entire fluid region from 116 K (triple point temperature) to 550 K at pressures up to 200 MPa. The mathematical form of the equation was determined with the help of a new method to optimize its structure. New pressure-density-temperature data in the liquid region and especially new vapour pressures and saturated liquid densities, as well as speed of sound data have been incorporated to extend the range of validity and to improve the accuracy of properties calculated with this equation beyond that of previous formulations. Independent equations are also included for the vapour pressure as well as for the saturated liquid and vapour densities. The uncertainty of the new wide-range equation of state can roughly be given as follows: less than or equal to ± 0.1% in density (with the exception of the critical region), less than or equal to ± 1% in heat capacity, less than or equal to ± 0.5% in speed of sound in the liquid and less than or equal to 0.1% in speed of sound in the gas phase. The new equation of state corresponds to the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90).
