The equations of state of Redlich-Kwong, Soave, BWR, Schmidt-Wenzel, and Harmens-Knapp have been tested and compared in their ability to predict the spinodal and the experimental limits of superheat of pure liquids. The results indicate that only the Peng-Robinson, Soave and BWR equations are capable of predicting reduced kinetic limits of supersaturation above the experimental ones.
