This article presents dimensionless equations for the temperature dependence of the saturated liquid viscosity of R32, R123, R124, R125, R134a, R141b, and R152a valid over a temperature range of engineering interest. The correlation has the form Phi(D)(n)=A+BTD where Phi(D) is the dimensionless fluidity (1/eta(D)) and T-D is a dimensionless temperature. n, A, and B are evaluated for each of the above refrigerants based on a least-squares fit to experimental data. This equation is found to provide an improved fit over those existing in the literature up to T-D=0.8.
