The article presents a description of a new method of calculation by means of which the distribution of the temperature of a mixture of coolants along the working circuit of a low-temperature refrigerating machine may be calculated to a first approximation and the quantitative composition of a charge mixture of coolants determined for a given composition of the circulating mixture of coolants.
