13 ANSI/AHRI STANDARD APPENDIX C.METHOD TO HANDLE ZEOTROPIC MIXTURES INFORMATIVE C1 Cycle Process For reference, Figure C1 shows a typical single stage cycle for single component refrigerants and azeotropic mixtures. The description is consistent with the ISO 917 standard. As shown, the evaporating and condensing processes occur at fixed temperatures t o and t c. Figure C1: Cycle Process for Single Component Refrigerants and Azeotropic Mixtures 9

14 ANSI/AHRI STANDARD Figure C2: Cycle Process for Zeotropic Refrigerant Mixtures Figure C2 shows temperature glide for zeotropic refrigerant mixtures at the evaporation and condensation processes. Standard reference temperatures are the dew-point temperatures t " 0 at the evaporating pressure p g1 and t " c at the condensing pressure p g2. The following equations may be used to calculate the mean evaporating temperature, mean condensing temperature, refrigerant superheating, and refrigerant subcooling: mean evaporating temperature: t 0,m = (t 01 + t " 0 )/ 2 C1 mean condensing temperature: t c,m = (t ' c + t c)/ " 2 C2 refrigerant superheating: t Sg = t g1 - t " 0 ) C3 refrigerant subcooling: t Sf = t ' c - t f2 = t f1 - t f2 C4 Because t 01 = t " 0 and t ' c = t " c for single-component refrigerants and azeotropic multi-component refrigerants, the cycle process model represents a particular kind of model for zeotropic refrigerant mixtures. In all reference systems refrigerating capacity is: Q = m (h g1 h f2 ) C5 and Q 0 = m (h g1 h f1 ) C6 10

15 ANSI/AHRI STANDARD for refrigerating capacity converted to no subcooling. The reference systems described above allow one to calculate and present performance data for all kinds of refrigerants in a similar way. ISO 917 requires zero subcooling for the calculation of refrigerating capacity of the compressor. In this case h f1 and h f2 are equal. Note: In connection with zeotropic mixtures, different definitions of the expressions superheating and subcooling can be found in technical documentation (Figure C3). The Equations C3 and C4 are equivalent to A in Figure C3 and shall be used for the purpose of calculating ratings. For reference only, B in Figure C3 with mean temperatures as reference points, uses the following equations: refrigerant superheating: t Sg = t g1 - t 0,m C7 refrigerant subcooling t Sf = t cm - t f2 t f1 - t f2 C8 Figure C3: Definitions of Subcooling and Superheating 11
