Miscibility of seven different lubricants with ten different non-CFC refrigerants Conference Paper uri icon


  • Miscibility data have been obtained for a variety of non-CFC refrigerants and their potential lubricants. Ten different refrigerants and seven different lubricants were investigated. Experiments are being performed in two phases: Phase I, reported herein, focuses on performing screening tests, and Phase II consists of developing miscibility plots. The miscibility tests are being performed in a test facility consisting of a series of miniature test cells submersed in a constant-temperature bath. The bath temperature can be precisely controlled over a temperature range of -50C to 90C (-58F to 194F). The test cells are constructed to allow for complete visibility of the refrigerant/lubricant mixtures under all test conditions.
