Abstract

Abstract Pressure-density-temperature (PρT) properties, vapor pressures, and saturated liquid and vapor densities for refrigerants R 1234ze(Z) (cis-1,3,3,3-tetrafluoroprop-1-ene; CF3CHCHF) and R 245fa (1,1,1,3,3-pentafluoropropane; C3H3F5) were measured with two types of isochoric methods. Pressure was measured with a digital quartz pressure transducer. Temperature was measured with 25 Ω standard platinum resistance thermometer on the ITS-90 temperature scale. Density was calculated from the mass of sample and the inner volume of pressure vessel. By using the present vapor pressure data, new vapor pressure correlations for R 1234ze(Z) and R 245fa have been formulated. In addition, the critical temperature Tc, critical density ρc, and critical pressure Pc were directly determined on the basis of direct observation of the meniscus disappearance.
