Which Organic Fluid should I used in organic rankine cycle ?

  1. Oct 1, 2016 #1
    I'm trying to make a low temp heat exchanger but feeling difficulty in selecting a type of organic fluid
    some are very toxic, some are not environment friendly.
    Is there anyone who could suggest me the working organic fluid but it should not be water.

    300 to 500 degree celcius

    lets consider it just 300 degree celcius

    from 300 to 170 degree Celsius I've to use the temp range so water will not be efficient
