**R427A**

R427A is an a zeotropic mixture consisting of 15 weight% R32, 25% R125, 10% R143A and 50% R134a. It is currently marketed by Arkema as Forane 427A and it is considered to be a replacement fluid for R22. It has a molar mass of 90.4 kg/kmol.

Thermodynamic data for R427A are provided using a pseudo-pure fluid model in the manner described by:

E. Lemmon

"Pseudo-Pure Fluid Equations of State for the Refrigerant Blends R-410A, R-404A,R-507A, and R-407C"

International Journal of Thermophysics, Vol. 24, No. 4, July 2003

The generalized equation of state was fitted by F-Chart Software using thermodynamic property data provided by the REFPROP 10 program. The reference state for enthalpy and entropy is the IIR recommendation in which the specific enthalpy and entropy of saturated liquid are 200 kJ/kg and 1.0 kJ/kg-K, respectively. The model is applicable for temperatures between 200 K and 420 K with pressures up to 20 MPa.

Transport properties are estimated using a corresponding states approach as suggested in:
