R428A (also known as RS-52) is a zeotropic mixture consisting of 69.4% weight % R125, 25.6% R143a, 1.5% propane and 3.5% isobutane.   It is considered to be a replacement fluid for R22 and R502.  It has a molar mass of 107.53 kg/kmol.


Property data for R428A 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 530 K with pressures up to 50 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.  


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