The correlation is valid for temperatures in the range between triple point at 178.5 K to 550 K for pressures less than 700 MPa.  Enthalpy and entropy values are referenced to 200 kJ/kg and 1 kJ/kg-K respectively for saturated liquid at 273.15 K. 


Transport properties are provided using correlations given in:
