The vapor-liquid equilibrium of the mixture composed of difluoromethane (R-32) and propane (R-290) was studied in the temperature range between 273.15 and 313.15 K. The experimental uncertainties of temperature, pressure, and composition measurements were estimated to be within ± 10 mK, ± 3 kPa, and ± 0.4 mol%, respectively. Comparisons between the present data and available experimental data were made using the Helmholtz free energy mixture model (HMM) adopted in the thermophysical properties program package, REFPROP 6.0, as a baseline. In addition, the existence of an azeotrope and the determination of new adjustable parameters for HMM for the R-32 + R-290 mixture are discussed.
