Summary

Condensation heat transfer of R1234yf inside smooth and microfin tube with 2.5 mm outer diameter are studied experimentally. The experiments are carried out at a saturation temperature of 20°C and 30°C, mass velocity ranging from 50 to 200 kg m−2s−1 and vapor quality ranging from 0-1. The effects of mass velocity, vapor quality, and saturation temperature on condensation heat transfer coefficient are analyzed with R1234yf and R134a. Condensation heat transfer correlation for smooth tube is developed considering present experimental data and other researchers’ data. Correlation is developed using experimental data for 2.5 mm to 10 mm outer diameter tubes and refrigerants are R134a, R1234yf, R123 and R1234ze (E) by including other researchers’ data. Newly developed correlation is successfully predicted experimental data and other sources data within mean deviation of 15 %. Experimental data are also compared with previous correlations proposed for smooth and microfin tube.
