Résumé

The present work analyzed the isobutane flow through electronic valves with hydraulic diameters smaller than 0.19mm. Three valves were firstly tested with nitrogen in order to obtain the equivalent capillary tubes. The most promising valves were then tested with isobutane under domestic refrigeration conditions. To this end, a test bench capable of operating with condensation and
evaporation temperatures respectively between 25 and 45°C and -28 and -10°C was constructed. In order to check for choked flow occurrence, complete mass flow curves were additionally obtained for several opening ratios. It was found that the valves are nearly insensible to the sub-cooling degree and that the flow is choked under all practical conditions. Finally, a semi-empirical mathematical model based on a correlation for the flow coefficient was proposed and fitted with a reduced number of points. A reasonable agreement was observed with approximately 94% of the 138 points within a 15% error band.
