Performance and dynamic flammability of R32/134a mixtures in water-to-water heat pumps


Presents an analysis of the thermodynamic properties and refrigerating performance for the alternative R32/R134a mixture in water to water heat pumps. Also investigates a dynamic model and flammability during the leakage test process. States the results show that this mixture is a good alternative for water to water heat pumps, but the possibility of burning and explosive accidents with leakage cannot be excluded.
