The correct prediction of the heat transfer performance of the boiling liquid within the evaporator of a refrigeration unit is one of the essential features for the successful operation of the whole unit. A theoretically consistent calculation method for the heat transfer coefficient alpha in nucleate boiling, which should be based on the physical phenomena connected with vapour bubbles growing, departing and sliding on the wall and with the interactions of bubbles and of neighbouring nucleation sites within the microstructure of the heating surface, does not yet exist, despite the increasing number of papers on the subject in the recent past. Instead, the predictive methods for alpha available at present are empirical or semiempirical, especially for heat transfer conditions relevant in practice. Many of these correlations have been established in the form of power laws in which the relative influences of the main groups of variables on alpha are treated by separate factors. One of these may stand for the influence of the thermophysical properties of the boiling liquid or these properties will be included in several of the factors. New experimental results are presented for pool boiling heat transfer from a single horizontal copper tube (8 mm OD) to HFC-refrigerants (R32, 125, 134a, 143a, 152a, 227ea) and hydrocarbons (propane, i-butane). The results are compared to experimental data from the literature, and methods are discussed, how to incorporate the data in semiempirical correlations to describe the influence of the thermophysical properties of the fluids on the heat transfer performance.
