The capabilities of cubic Equations of State (EoS) in the correlation and the prediction of phase equilibria at hyperbaric conditions is examined. PVT data of pure compounds as well as VLE and volumetric data of binary mixtures up to 2000 bar are used. Correlation and prediction results are presented with the translated and modified Peng-Robinson (t-mPR) EoS and EoS/G(E) models. The performance of cubic EoS with a single interaction parameter (k(ij)) in describing VLE is remarkable considering the level of pressures involved. The same is valid for the PVT results including the relative liquid volumes of the C-1/nC(24) system. With typical errors of about 10% deviations in pressure of 100-200 bar are, of course, encountered which can be eliminated by the use of second interaction coefficient in the covolume combining rule. Predicted k(ij) values obtained from generalized correlations developed from low pressure VLE data provide reasonable results for systems with hydrocarbons up to nC(16) even at high pressures, but fail for higher asymmetric ones. Volume translation is essential for PVT predictions. The temperature independent translation of t-mPR and that of Jhaveri and Yeugren give very satisfactory results. LCVM provides the best results of the EoS/G(E) models studied and gives very good predictions for rather symmetric systems which become poorer with asymmetric ones at very high pressures. (EN)
