The Armfield Industrial Division designs and manufactures research & development systems, primarily for the food, beverage, dairy, edible oil and pharmaceutical industries. Used by many of the world’s leading corporations, Armfield systems enable researchers and product developers to replicate full-scale industrial manufacturing processes on a miniature-scale in the laboratory.
FT20/FT20A Cheese Vat & Cheese Making Accessories
The Armfield Cheese Vat is designed to provide practical training in the production of cheese by the traditional method. When making Cheddar type cheese, approximately 1kg of cheese is produced from a ten-litre batch of milk.
FT17 Cross Flow Membrane Filtration
The Armfield FT17 is a lab-scale system for evaluating membranes in a cross flow filtration application. This enables rapid determination of cross flow filtration performance using a range of membrane types with small product volumes (1 litre). It can also be used in teaching applications to demonstrate features of different membrane types and the effect of varying filtration variables.
FT18-MkII Cross-flow Filtration System
The Armfield FT18-MkII is a pilot-scale cross-flow filtration system designed to operate with a range of membrane module configurations. It can operate with as little as 10 litres of material but still give data that is useful for process scale-up. It can be used over the full range of cross-flow filtration applications from microfiltration through to reverse osmosis. It is the perfect tool to use, following on from flat sheet membrane trials with the FT17, for further process development and scale-up.
