Secop CapSel App – Capillary Tube Selection Software for Apple iOS and Google Android
Secop's Capillary Tube Selection Software CapSel – which allows the user to calculate the measurements of a capillary tube throttling device for a refrigeration system using empirical formulas – is now available as an App for devices running on Apple's iOS or Google's Android operating systems.
Secop was formerly known as Danfoss Compressors. Our first selection program DanCap was developed in 2006 and is no longer supported. It was renamed to CapSel in 2012. As we update our software to reflect our current knowledge and experience, the CapSel program will showing improved calculation results compared to the old DanCap program.
The App is available in English, Chinese, Spanish, French, Russian, Portuguese, German, Japanese, Korean, Italian and Turkish.
Our Android Package (APK) files can be installed manually (depending on your Android OS settings), for example, if you do not have access to Google Play.
The latest update 1.5.0 contains some bug fixes and minor user interface adjustments to make the app run seamlessly with the latest versions of Apple's iOS or Google's Android operating systems. The update also implements "Auto Calculate" and saving of the selected system of measurement.
The Secop CapSel App makes it possible to design a capillary tube expansion device for compressor cooling systems. Capillary tubes are often used in light commercial refrigeration systems, mobile refrigeration systems, and household refrigerators instead of a thermostatic expansion device, with natural refrigerants. Well-designed capillary tubes in a hermetically sealed compressor system can lead to an energy-efficient system, which can be improved by the technology of variable speed compressors.
The App includes the hydrocarbon refrigerants R290 and R600a. Capillary tubes for refrigerating compressor systems with other refrigerants can also be calculated as well as the transitional refrigerants R452A and R513A.
