Abstract: The basis for the development and evaluation of equations of state for mixtures is experimental data for several thermodynamic properties. The quality and the availability of experimental data limit the achievable accuracy of the equation. Referring to the fundamentals of GERG-2008 wide-range equation of state, no suitable data were available for many mixtures containing secondary natural gas components. This work provides accurate experimental (p, ρ, T) data for two binary mixtures of methane with helium (0.95 (amount-of-substance fraction) CH4 + 0.05 He and 0.90 CH4 + 0.10 He). Density measurements were performed at temperatures between 250 K and 400 K and pressures up to 20 MPa by using a single-sinker densimeter with magnetic suspension coupling. Experimental data were compared with the corresponding densities calculated from the GERG-2008 and the AGA8-DC92 equations of state. Deviations from GERG-2008 were found within a 2 % band for the (0.95 CH4 + 0.05 He) mixture but exceeded the 3 % limit for the (0.95 CH4 + 0.05 He) mixture. The highest deviations were observed at 250 K and pressures between 17 and 19 MPa. Values calculated from AGA8-DC92, however, deviated from the experimental data by only 0.1 % at high pressures and exceeded the 0.2 % limit only at temperatures of 300 K and above, for the (0.90 CH4 + 0.10 He) mixture.
