Abstract

The phase equilibrium conditions of clathrate hydrate of argon were measured by the isochoric procedure at the temperatures from 197.6 K to 274.1 K. Argon hydrate would have industrial applications including a working medium of the hydrate-based heat pump systems as well as influence the analysis of the past climate change on the Earth. Nevertheless, the equilibrium conditions of argon hydrate were limited in the literatures and not reported below the temperature 264 K. The lowest and the highest measured equilibrium pressure is the pressure 0.825 MPa at the temperature 197.6 K and the pressure 9.881 MPa at the temperature 274.1 K. The equilibrium pressure increases with an increase in temperature. The reliability of the measured equilibrium conditions is supported by the internal consistency of those and the coincidence of the experimentally determined quadruple point (vapor + hydrate + ice + aqueous phases in equilibrium) temperature with the water freezing temperature theoretically predicted. The discussion is given on the comparison of the equilibrium data measured in this study and those reported in the literature.
