UOP10 Laboratory Steam Generator – Issue 8

As many laboratories do not incorporate a centralised or reliable steam source, Armfield offer an advanced boiler providing a constant supply of steam. The compact unit requires only connection to water and electrical supplies for operation.

Ordering Specification

  • A floor-standing continuous steam generator 
  • Splash-proof electrical enclosure and switches
  • Solid-state level control on feed water tank 
  • Easy and safe access for maintenance and inspection, with door isolator to the main electrical enclosure 
  • Manufactured in accordance with Module G of the European Pressure Equipment directive 97/23/EC 
  • A comprehensive instruction manual

Description

The Armfield UOP10 Laboratory Steam Generator comprises a mains fed header tank with level control which supplies the pressure vessel via a quiet-running, heavy-duty, high-pressure feed pump.

The pressure vessel is built to all relevant British and European standards. Being heavily insulated with two totally immersed Incoloy heating elements it provides a highly efficient and economical means of generating a continuous supply of steam.

The two heating elements are individually switched and the unit will operate satisfactorily on a single element.

The integral control panel houses an on/off mains switch with switchable test functions; LEDs display the operational status of the equipment.

The UOP10 is fully safeguarded via a magnetic circuit breaker (MCB) and a residual current device (RCD) to give a long trouble-free life.

The components of the UOP10 are mounted within a steel cabinet finished with a high-gloss stove enamel paint for corrosion resistance and long life. Front panels are hinged for easy access and are fitted with key-operated handles.

It is recommended that for optimum life of the unit, feedwater should be demineralised.

Optional Accessory

In some countries it is illegal to blow down a steam boiler directly into the drainage system and a separator must be used. Armfield can offer a purpose-built separator to fulfil this function. Users should check local regulations on the requirements for this unit.
