R470B (also known as RS-51) is a zeotropic mixture consisting of 57 weight% R1234ze(E), 11.5% R125, 11.5% R32, 10% carbon dioxide, 3% R134a, and 7% R227ea.   It is considered to be a replacement fluid for R404A and R507.  It has a molar mass of 89.73 kg/kmol.


Property data for470B are provided using a generalized equation of state fitted by F-Chart Software using thermodynamic property data from the manufacturer and generated by REFPROP.  The model is applicable for temperatures between 170 K and 500 K with pressures up to 50 MPa.  The reference state is saturated liquid at 0 C for which specific enthalpy and entropy are 200 kJ/kg and 1.0 kJ/kg-K, respectively.  


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