R516A is an azeotropic mixture consisting of 77.5 weight% R1234yf, 14.0% R152a and 8.5% R134a.  It is considered to be a replacement fluid for R134a.  It has a molar mass of 102.58 kg/kmol.  


Property data for R516A are provided using a generalized equation of state fitted by F-Chart Software using thermodynamic property data generated by REFPROP.  The model is applicable for temperatures between 180 K and 420 K with pressures up to 20 MPa.  The reference state is saturated liquid at 0C for which specific enthalpy and entropy are 200 kJ/kg and 1.0 kJ/kg-K, respectively.

The correlation are valid over the same range of temperature as the equation of state.


Surface tension data were fit to data obtained from the REFPROP.
