Measurements of PvT properties, saturated densities, and critical parameters were carried out for a low-GWP refrigerant: 3,3,3-trifluoropropene (HFO1243zf, CF3CH=CH2). Seventy-five PvT property data points along seven isochores around the critical point were obtained in the temperature range from 328 to 430 K, in the density range between 50 and 899 kg m-3, and at pressures up to 6.9 MPa by the isochoric method. Fourteen saturated densities were obtained by the observation of meniscus disappearance in the critical region. On the basis of these measurements, the critical parameters of Tc = 376.93 ± 0.01 K and ρc = 414 ± 3 kg m-3 were determined. The present results are compared to an available equation of state.
