This will work, but I recommend using the right units for your constants rather than making the expression unitless and forcing it to Kelvin afterward.

Unit conversion is major benefit of CEL is that you can use your dimensional data directly and allow CFX to do the unit conversion. This is a lot less error prone than doing what Georg suggested.
