Italian component manufacturer Castel has published a new 2022 product catalog that includes the company’s GoGreen range of valves, filters and filter dryers – all designed for use with CO2 (R744) refrigerant.
The 2022 Castel product catalog also includes the company’s new Polyhedra series of components suitable for hydrocarbons like propane (R290), isobutane (R600a) and propylene (R1270).
To assist customers when selecting components, Castel has introduced an enhanced app selector. This tool “helps the designer, and the refrigeration technician, to calculate the pressure drop generated by each passive component of the Castel family, thus providing all the information for a correct selection,” the company said on its website.
In addition to calculating fluid dynamics, the app selector also assists system designers when they pair ball valves with an actuator and its adapter by providing a complete list of components needed.
Castel’s mission is to support “our customer base with reliable, durable, high quality and technologically-advanced products, manufactured with respect for the environment, and supported and improved upon by levels of service that exceed industry standards.”
As part of its mission, Castel emphasizes the continuous development and improvement of its products. In 2021, Castel launched a series of 100% stainless steel vibration absorbers suitable for CO2 and hydrocarbon refrigeration systems. These vibration absorbers prevent transmission of compressor vibrations to the pipes in the refrigeration system, reducing both noise and the risk of damage.
Also in 2021, Castel launched a line of stainless steel CO2 ball valves that can operate up to 150bar (2,176psi) and 150°C (302°F) and are made without brazing or welding between the valve body and connections.
