Happy Holidays from us all at Armfield

While none of us could have predicted how tough 2020 was going to be, all of us at Armfield want to say a massive thank you for sticking with us throughout the year.

Armfield would not be where it is without our amazing customers and agents, due to your continued support we are able to head into 2021 full of confidence that further success is just around the corner.

Our office will close for the holiday on the 24th of December, returning on the 4th of January.

We will continue our evolution including the opening of the Armfield academy knowledge hub and the release of the new product catalogue early in 2021

The Armfield Sediment Transport Demonstration Channel

Most natural waterways and many canals are subject to bed movements caused by the action of the water transporting the material forming the bed in the downstream direction.

The type and rate of movement of the transported material can vary from large stones moved down fast flowing mountain streams, through sand and gravel sizes, to very fine clay particles moved by slow flowing rivers being deposited in lakes and estuaries to form deltas and bottom clay deposits.

A basic understanding of the processes of sediment transport is essential to scientists, engineers and technologists who may be engaged in geology, hydrology, irrigation and other aspects of civil, marine or environmental engineering.

The Armfield S8-MkII allows a range of experiments to be performed to demonstrate the two principle methods of sediment transport in water: bed load movement & suspended sediment transport.

Additional investigations can be undertaken to demonstrate local scour at channel obstructions such as bridge piers, and the secondary flow in channel beds.

Remote access to the essentials of Process Control

Introduce students to the fundamentals and principles of process control and provide a thorough understanding in the control of physical processes with Armfield’s Essentials Process Control range.

Level, flow, temperature and pressure as the controlled variable can all be demonstrated via four independent process units. The concepts of closed loop control, including on/off control, proportional control, proportional/integral and proportional/integral/derivative (PID) control can be explored and demonstrated.

All units are computer controlled and can be remotely operated enabling seamless teaching in a distant or remote learning environment.

Understanding Structural Behaviour

Armfield have teamed up with Dr David Brohn (who is also working with the Institution of Structural Engineers on this topic) to develop a range of hardware and software specifically to address this issue of understanding structural behaviour. This is a highly modular system with almost an infinite range of possibilities.

To simplify purchasing, the components are available in a number of kits depending on requirements, there are eight standard projects including:


– Cantilever beam
– Simply supported beam
– Two span beam
– Pinned beam
– Rigid right angle joint
– Rigid portal frame
– Portal frame with pinned connection
– Portal frame with pinned support

The equipment provides an unsurpassed and unique learning experience when the display software is coupled with the sensors, actuators and analysis software.

Armfield Fluid Machines

The FM53 Plunger Pump Demonstration Unit replicates those used in industry in a wide variety of applications such as cleaning or process technology in the chemical industry.

The plunger or ram pump is used for pumping small quantities of liquid at high pressure. Electronic sensors measure the instantaneous cylinder pressure within the pump, the pump displacement and the cumulative flow.

Computer controlled with datalogging the FM53 is one of Armfield’s vast range of units with remote access capabilities.

See the extensive range of fluid machine demonstration units at www.armfield.co.uk/fm or contact sales@armfield.co.uk to discuss your remote access needs.

Montana State University

Armfield recently visited Stephanie Wettstein at the chemical engineering department, Montana State University to complete the installation of the UOP3CC Continuous Computer Controlled Distillation Column.

As innovators of educational engineering equipment Armfield have developed this state-of-the-art laboratory based distillation column to enable safe hands on practical training for student engineers and plant operators as well as empowering research in different fields to be conducted.

The UOP3CC enables a range of demonstrations from the introductory stages of a process engineering course through to the more complex demonstrations of modern control strategies.

Armfield’s professional services team offer installation, commissioning and training on site to ensure that laboratories and research centres are able to fully utilise all equipment at the earliest opportunity.
