When retrofitting new refrigerants in an existing vapour compression system, their adaptation to the heat exchangers is a major concern. R450A and R448A are commercial non-flammable mixtures with low GWP developed to replace the HFCs R134a and R404A, fluids with high GWP values. In this work the evaporator performance is evaluated through a shell-and-microfin tubes evaporator model using R450A, R448A, R134a and R404A. The accuracy of the model is first studied considering different recently… Expand
