Abstract

A method is presented which ranks single fluid refrigerants in order of thermodynamic effectiveness. Blends can be included in the ranking if their viscosity is adjusted to account for blend constituent interactions. This is achieved by the empirical use of molecular acentricity and dipole moment values for the constituent fluids. Only public domain property data are needed.
