Batch Enzyme Reactor

Code: BE1

A batch enzyme reaction system utilising the industrially important glucose isomerisation reaction (converting glucose to fructose), the BE1 demonstrates batch enzyme kinetics and enzyme characteristics.

Chromatography Unit

Code: BE2

The BE2 system demonstrates several varieties of low-pressure liquid chromatography such as ion-exchange and hydrophobic interaction. A range of separation methods are displayed, including particle charge and molecule hydrophobicity.

Anaerobic Reactors

Code: BE3/BE4

Armfield is proud to present two new anaerobic reactors. These units can be operated in different configurations making them extremely versatile and suitable for both educational and research purposes.

Computer Controlled Subsonic Wind Tunnel

Code: C15

Suitable for undergraduate training and project work, the Armfield C15 is a small benchtop wind tunnel with a transparent working section. A wide range of accessories are available, allowing the comprehensive study of subsonic aerodynamics.

Multi-Purpose Teaching Flume

Code: C4MKII

The Armfield Multi-purpose Teaching Flume has been specifically designed to demonstrate the principles of fluid mechanics when applied to engineering structures in open channel flow.

Fluid Friction Measurements

Code: C6MKII

The Armfield C6MkII provides facilities for the detailed study of fluid friction head losses which occur when an incompressible fluid flows through pipes, fittings and flow metering devices. For use with the Armfield F1-10 Hydraulics bench.

Wetted Wall Gas Absorption Column

Code: CES

CES demonstrates the absorption of oxygen from air into deoxygenated water, as an example of liquid film controlled absorption. The liquid-film mass transfer coefficient can be determined at various mass flow rates of water.

Catalytic Reactors

Code: CEU

The Armfield Catalytic Reactors unit (CEU) utilises the sugar inversion reaction (Sucrose ➞ Glucose + Fructose) to study the performance of packed-bed chemical and biological catalytic reactors. A colorimetric assay is used to determine the degree of conversion using an optical sensor. Assays may be automated using optional flow injection analysis.

Computer Controlled Chemical Reactor Teaching Equipment

Code: CEXC

The Armfield CEXC family is a range of chemical reactors specifically developed for the teaching and demonstration of chemical reactor capabilities to chemical engineering students. Real chemical reactions take place within the reactors, and Armfield have developed a number of representative reactions which are easy and safe for students to use in the laboratory environment.
