Looking For A Refrigerant Fluid

    Howdy PFers!

    I hardly ever make it into this particular Forum, but I was wondering if any of you know of a refrigerant that evaporates at or around 50° F?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    You'll need to specify a pressure and a little about the system it would be used in, but I'll bet many commercial refrigerants would fit the bill.

    You can browse through the NIST Fluid properties database to look up saturation properties of fluids at various temperatures and pressures.

    Thanks Mech, that atble should prove very usefull for future questions, as well.

    It's kind of funny that you ended up around that temp, because me and a friend were pulling a vacuum on DI water using a diaphragm pump. It got a bit under 50F.
