Crossover equations of state (EOSs) are models that incorporate density fluctuations into mean-field thermodynamic models, changing their behavior close to the critical point. In this way, they are capable of describing the analytical behavior of fluids far from the critical region and the asymptotic one near the critical point. Although several crossover EOSs have been developed in the last decades their use in modeling industrial processes is rather limited. In this work, we use the crossover Soave–Redlich–Kwong (CSRK) to describe phase equilibrium and critical properties of pure n-alkanes and methane/n-alkane binary mixtures and compare the results to two other modeling approaches of the SRK EOS. In the case of the pure fluids, CSRK gives an accurate overall description of the phase equilibrium and critical properties; nevertheless, a minor increase in the deviation of the saturation pressure and other properties is observed when compared to that of the mean-field model. For the binary mixtures, an improvement in the description of the critical volumes is seen, while, for the other properties, similar results are obtained.
